Visiting the magnificent wonders this incredibly beautiful island has to offer.
Our splendid tour of Iceland encompasses many of the incredible natural wonders and sights, to be experienced first hand, including the vast high desert interior and the eastern fjords. Snow clad mountains and icefields, amazing glaciers, huge powerful waterfalls, columnar basalt formations to blow your mind, lava caves and flows, volcanoes galore, hot springs and much much more!
We will meet in Reykjavik and spend the next 13 days circumnavigating Iceland. We will be travelling in a comfortable 15 seat ‘Super Big Foot’ with a trailer for our luggage and a fully equipped kitchen towed behind. Our experienced driver Bjarni has all the skills to safely transport us on this wonderful expedition around the island. He knows all the back roads like no one else and with this special vehicle, we can access remote and rough places that ordinary cars can’t…
Joining us will be our popular Italian guide Luca Panaro, who many of you will know from our many walking tours in Italy and Norway. Luca has conducted numerous circumnavigations of Iceland over the last few years and, together with our local driver/guide Bjarni, he will facilitate your explorations magnificently. Luca and I have run many tours together over the past 12 years or so – in Italy, Iceland, Patagonia and Norway and we share a joyful rapport together that will enrich your experiences and always keep you cheerful!
Everything about this trip is an amazing adventure – visiting the most magnificent wonders that this extreme island has to offer. We will stay in hotels and good quality lodgings as far as is possible, although in a few of the remoter places, we will have to stay in mountain refuges and huts. However, this is all immensely enjoyable and it is the only practical way to experience some of the great natural wonders that lurk far off the beaten track of this volcanic island that actually sits atop the ever spreading Mid Atlantic Ridge.
Luca and I will cook up wonderful evening meals for you on most nights, that will naturally incorporate Italian fine dining with local produce. On a few nights, we’ll eat in local restaurants for a change. Our lunches will be either be picnics, or be taken off the back of our trailer, that has a table built in! And so we will have no constraints to stop us penetrating some of the wildest and most unbelievable landscapes on earth – experiencing bare nature at it’s finest.
