Iceland lies on the edge of the Arctic Circle and is home to some of Europe’s greatest wild landscapes. A land of incredible contrast and natural beauty, its wild volcanic landscapes, mountains, glaciers, hot springs, geysers and waterfalls, combined with its rich history, literature and folklore make it a fascinating country to explore.

You will discover this stunning scenery on this fantastic trekking challenge in southern Iceland, as you trek through a striking mix of geothermal valleys and beautiful mountain scenery, streams and waterfalls. The warmth of the geothermal activity keeps the route clear of snow, so you can take advantage of seeing this beautiful region in winter, without technical winter trekking.

Staying in huts miles from the nearest big towns, the dark skies offer a great chance of seeing the spectacular Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) each evening – the icing on the cake on this memorable challenge!
