Iceland is a paradise for lovers of the outdoors. With some of the most stunning scenery on the planet and miles and miles of hiking trails, there’s so much to explore.

Why Choose an Iceland Hiking Tour?

With glaciers and volcanoes, mountain peaks and rugged coastlines, forests and black-sand plains, there are few places with such breathtaking scenery as Iceland. Add the huge network of hiking trails to the equation, and you’ve got the ideal destination for an active vacation.

Hiking tours are the best way to explore Iceland’s majestic outdoors. With day walks, multi-day hikes, and longer treks across the wilderness, there’s something for everyone and for every level of fitness.

One of the best-known hiking trips in Iceland is the Laugavegur trail. Named as one of the classic hiking routes in the world by National Geographic, the path from Landmannalaugar to Þórsmörk takes you through the heart of the southern highlands over five days. Expect multicoloured rhyolite mountains, volcanoes, canyons, and black-sand deserts, with mountain huts to stay in along the way.

And if that’s not enough, with Icelandia, there are many options to customise and extend your trip. For example, head up to Fimmvörðuháls, where you’ll see lava fields and volcanic craters caused by the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption.

Alternatively, join a hiking tour in Iceland’s Vatnajökull National Park. Here, you can explore dramatic volcanic and glacial landscapes over a week—and be sure that you’re far away from the beaten track. It’s at Vatnajökull that you’ll also find Hvannadalshnúkur, Iceland’s highest peak.

Among the many tours we offer, there’s also the chance to head out east to Víknaslóðir, the trail that combines high mountains with sea views.
