Hikes offered during the tour are a mixture of easy and moderate routes. Participants do not need to be expert hikers, but they should be in reasonable physical shape. The trip hiking is also designed to be flexible: each day’s hiking will be adjusted to your group’s general fitness level, weather and trail conditions.
A big appeal of hiking in Iceland is that it is an authentic, natural experience. This means most hiking paths in Iceland are not paved. Expect trails to have lava rocks, loose gravel, soft dirt and muddy areas. In some cases, trails follow narrow paths created from sheep trails. We highly recommend that you bring hiking poles/alpine walking sticks on this tour.
The guide has the right to change hiking routes in the itinerary based on weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. Some of the days involve driving on unpaved wilderness tracks in the highlands. Be prepared to expect bumpy roads! It‘s all part of the authentic adventure and fun of exploring the highlands!
