Iceland remains one of the world's most enigmatic countries. There are volcanoes, lava fields, ice caps, geothermal activity and great waterfalls but there is also a familiar landscape of coastal mountains, farms, pasture, and, in summer, a proliferation of birds and flowers. The interior of Iceland however, with its lava and sand deserts, glaciers, ice-caps, and old volcanoes could be part of another planet.
Iceland does almost nudge the Arctic Circle and temperatures can range from 4-24°C. Shorts when it is sunny, but thermal wear and good all-weather gear are necessary too. Our trips are active. If you have good mountain gear, strong boots, a sense of adventure and a wish to experience a spectacular landscape, then you will thrive there. We walk 5-7 hours most days.
