Iceland Walking & Hiking Holidays

Not only is Iceland brimming with an abundance of natural wonders, the long hours of daylight during the summer and plenty of landscapes to explore, make it a great destination for both serious hikers and casual walkers.

Our collection of walking and hiking itineraries is suited to all abilities – whether you’re a fair weather Sunday afternoon rambler or an adventurous glacier walking enthusiast! You can choose to have hiking as the focus of your holiday or simply opt for an itinerary that allows the odd day out on the footpaths.

Regardless of your fitness level, you will find a memorable walk to suit. Choose from multi-day guided treks staying under canvas or combine many scenic walking trails throughout the country with self-drive touring.

Walking and Hiking Group Tours

Hike some truly incredible trails in the company of an expert guide and like-minded travellers on one of our small group hiking holidays.

Fly Drives for Hikers

If you prefer to explore independently, a fly drive is a great way to combine multiple trails across different terrain. All all our Iceland fly drive holidays include access to a personalised digital guide, iDiscover, provided on an iPad Air for the duration of your trip.


A natural gem, Landmannalaugar in the Icelandic highlands offers some of the most surprising, spectacular and memorable views. Explore on foot before taking a dip in a hot spring stream. Stretching from here, across the rugged highlands and into the green valley of Thorsmork, is one of the most popular walking trails in Iceland, the Laugavegur route.

In the East Fjords region the beautiful Seydisfjordur offers abundant hiking and over in the west on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, walk along the cliffs between Arnarstapi to Hellnar for fantastic scenery of amazing rock arches.

We had a great time in Iceland. Highlights included hiking in Skaftafell and walking up to a glacier near Thorsmork - that was exciting!

And whether you wish to explore independently or in a small escorted group, we can help find your ideal walking and hiking holiday. It’s time to lace up those boots – this country was made for walking.
