Isolated Iceland

2300€ per person

Isolated Iceland is a trip through the most uncharted places in the heart of the Arctic island. Hiking across kilometric lakes, black deserts, coloured mountains & natural hot pots. We will move in our Land Rover Defender to be able to reach every isolated place in the ice & fire island.

Our groups are made by 8 travellers and 2 qualified guides who will show you the secrets of these amazing landscapes.

We will forget about the most touristic places here in Iceland, to hike across the most incredible & wild areas. We will arrive to forgotten lands even for the locals, surrounded by no villages in hundreds of miles and where we could meet face to face with the power of this magic and pure nature.

Day 6: The Ragnarök fires
Nordic mythology tells that the Ragnarök (the battle of the end of the world) was the fight between the Gods and the Giants. The eruption of the volcanic system linking the Katla and the Eldgjá volcanoes, is believed to have inspired its description in the Viking sagas. Today we will go to one of those landscapes that look like something out of a science fiction movie.
