Discover remote Iceland on a breath-taking backpacking adventure! On these backpacking trips, you'll have some free time to hike up ridges and peaks for unforgettable panoramic views of the surreal Icelandic wilderness. Option 1 is virtually a hut trip, however you will need to carry more gear than a true trekking trip - however you do overnight in well-equipped mountain huts. Option 2 is truly backpacking, with camping.
*** Full day-to-day backpacking itineraries are available upon request- please inquire if interested.
*** Trekking Group Sizes: 4 to 12 or 16 participants depending on the trip. The minimum to operate with our price is 4 / 6 travelers. Most trips meet the minimum to run. However if the group size is 4 or 5, we would quote the surcharge to run the tour and it will probably operate. For travelers with flexibility, we can pinpoint a guaranteed departure for you - contact us for details.
*** A quick word regarding the mountain huts in Option 1: All of the huts are heated, some have electricity and some have hot water. They have bunk rooms with single and twin beds, participants have to be prepared to share a room with other travelers from the group.
** Domestic flights are not included in any of our programs but where required, we list the additional cost per person. Similarly, for Option 2, you'll need 2 extra nights for the trip and we have quoted that extra service, including transportation to the starting point and back, separately.
