This full-circuit trekking itinerary includes five of the best walking areas in Iceland. We start in Thorsmork Valley exploring the new craters from the eruption of the Eyjafjallajokul Volcano, before heading to Skaftafell National Park, home of the huge Vatnajokull Ice Cap. We also trek the mountains of the eastern fjords and the lunar-like Lake Myvatn landscape of pseudo craters, lavafields and plentiful hot springs. Finally, we move to Kerlingarfjoll Volcano in the central highlands and within sight of the massive Hofsjokull Ice Cap. Our experienced guides take us on some of the most spectacular hiking trails to really explore this truly unique country.

Accommodation details
Camping & Hotel
The first and last two nights are spent in Reykjavik. Here we usually use Hotel Cabin, offering comfortable rooms with en suite facilities.The hotel is approximately 800m from the city centre. As hotel availability in Reykjavik during the summer due to strong demand, we may occasionally use an alternative hotel of the same standard.
When camping we usually stay at organised campsites, with good facilities and showers are available for a small fee (about £2) at some, included at others. Some also have a launderette service or facilities for washing clothes.
We use spacious two-person tents with sewn-in groundsheets and separate flysheets are supplied. We provide a dining tent with a table, campstools, and LED lamps. Please note that some campsites in Iceland cannot be pre-booked, and are allocated on a first-come first-served basis. Occasionally in busy periods we may use campsites different to those outlined in the itinerary.


Single accommodation, including a single tent, is available from GBP300
