Hiking in Iceland

Hiking, glacier walking and trekking in Iceland

There is a real buzz about hiking in Iceland at the moment following Julia Bradbury's trekking experience and then the Bald Hiker blogger - Paul Steele's adventure in the 'Land of Fire and Ice'.

We're not surprised though - with Iceland's striking landscapes and endless vistas, we've always known that this volcanic island is the perfect place for hiking and walking holidays. For starters, its suited to just about everyone with walking options that include 30 minute rambles across easy terrain to challenging multi-day treks that cannot fail to inspire even the most experienced hiker.


Julia Bradbury's Icelandic Walk
TV presenter Julia Bradbury was astounded at Iceland's other-worldly landscape when she tackled the Laugavegur Trail for the BBC. Describing the scenery she encountered as 'heartstopping' and 'extraordinary', her route culminated with views towards the volcanic crater at the centre of the now infamous Eyjafjallajökull glacier.

A Blogger's Adventure
One such trek is the renowned Laugavegur Hiking Trail, a 60 km route from the rhyolite mountains of Landmannaulaugar to dramatic Thorsmork Valley. This inspiring trail was the focus of super-blogger Paul Steele's tailor-made trip as he discovered the true scale of Iceland's trekking possibilities.

Paul also explored some of the country's most iconic sights including the famed Golden Circle route as well as making time to enjoy a few of the most popular adventure options on offer - white water rafting, lava tube caving and perhaps more surprisingly, snorkelling!
