Welcome to a land of untamed natural beauty and wild abandon. A family trip to Iceland with B&R is like stepping into a scene from The Lord of the Rings—a fantasy playground where ancient sagas of sword-wielding Viking legends come to life, where trolls and elves are still believed to roam the lava fields, and the lofty summits of Mt Hekla and Snaefellsness offer routes to the centre of the Earth. It is an adventure for the taking and we dive in with activities for all ages. Travelling in the comfort of our own 4X4 with a personal guide, we set off for hikes over lava fields, glacier treks, caving, horseback-riding and perhaps even a dip in a heated river. It’s as entrancing as it is welcoming, and truly the trip of a lifetime.
Please note that space in Iceland is limited and during peak season fills up quickly. To secure space, it’s best to book one year in advance.
