Experience Adventre
with the Best Hikes in Iceland!

It seems as if Iceland was created for adventure travel. From leisurely hikes, to physically demanding treks, mountain biking, cross country skiing, horseback riding, or super jeep trips in the winter. We have every kind of Icelandic adventure to offer you, no matter the type of travel in Iceland you seek, and know all the best hikes in Iceland at the back of our hand!

Iceland is famous for its breathtaking landscapes and even though driving around the country is a great way to live up to Iceland’s great natural beauty, we highly recommend that you take a couple of days to slow down your pace and walk on some of the most beautiful trekking routes on earth! What best way to seize the day than to contemplate the sun rizing above endless glaciers and giant lakes?

You can choose to either go hiking in Iceland with your friends and family, or simply join a group of hikers for the occasion. You can sign up for our Icelandic tours with fixed departure dates and prices, or choose to form your own group with your family or your friends and create your personal ideal itinerary that we will adapt to your needs. You will always have professional English-speaking guides at your service who are all enthusiastic about helping you get to know their country. No need to add that people who are not experienced trekkers can still have a fantastic time discovering Iceland on foot.

The best hikes in Iceland can also be travelled horsehiking! The Icelandic horse is a breed unique to the country. Smaller than an average horse but particularly robust and hardy, they’re the pride of Iceland. They even have an extra gait than other breeds called the tölt whose characteristic liquidity of movement makes for a very comfortable ride. Every farmer in Iceland owns one and they come in handy for sheep herding come September. Many farmers offer stays on their farms and horseback tours. This is a great way to combine a traditional Icelandic activity with your exploration of the island. Equestrian experience is recommended, however, beginners are welcome for short trips as well as on the less challenging itineraries.

Here is a list of some of the best hikes in Iceland and adventurous, into te wild travels:
