Iceland is an outdoor adventure lover’s dream!
On this 8-day hiking adventure, you will explore the South Coast and go to the farthest reaches of Iceland, discovering nature in its most raw and untouched form. You will learn why they call Iceland “The Land of Ice and Fire.” You’ll hike through the glacial and snowy Icelandic landscape to later find yourself relaxing in a nice hot springs bath with a natural clay face mask. On this guided tour, you’ll get a great mix of nature and a taste of Icelandic traditions and culture. You’ll both tour the streets of Reykjavik and travel through some of the most untouched and remote landscapes in the world. Under the Northern Lights, you’ll see waterfalls, volcanoes, secret canyons, blue ice caves, and so much more.
With a small group size of only about 4-8 people, you will have an awesome close relationship with your guide. With such an intimate group, it’s easy to feel completely immersed and involved. The skill level recommendation for this adventure is intermediate. Hiking and snowshoeing through remote landscapes require you to be in pretty good shape. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity would be an amazing winter trip for you and your family or friends.
