Trekking in Iceland

10 days, Reykjavik to Reykjavik

Iceland is one of those rare places on Earth that feels more science-fiction than fact, even when you’re actually there. Gushing geysers, bubbling hot springs, mammoth volcanoes, and acres of polar ice lend this laidback island nation a palpable otherworldly allure. Any adventure will bring you into close contact with the land, hiking glaciers, scaling volcanic craters, and learning the colourful lore from your expert guides. There’s no spacesuit required for this out-of-this-world experience; just healthy legs and a wide-open heart.
