Check out the detailed itinerary in the tab above. Here is a short introduction:
An 8 day Icelandic Highland Winter Adventure for those seeking to be a traveller, not a tourist. The trip is a combination of total remoteness combined with civilization, touch of the locals, adventure activities in inspiring landscape and a welcoming atmosphere.
Activities and destinations include a snowmobile safari and hot spring bathing in Landmannalaugar, super jeep safari and snowshoe hike in Thorsmork, ice-climbing and ice-walking at Sólheimajökull, visiting South Coast sites such as Seljalandsfoss, Skógafoss and black beaches, the famous Golden Circle tour and a day on your own in Reykjavík.
