Isolated Iceland

 8 days       Mountain huts       Modified 4WD

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 modified 4×4 vehicles 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 4: Biking in the wilderness
    We head towards the south coast aboard our 4x4 vehicles to continue enjoying the beautiful Icelandic landscapes located at the limit of the Highlands, but this time by mountain bike. A spectacular location where the landscape is shaped by deep canyons and waterfalls that will allow us to feel the essence of this nature in its purest condition. We will stay in a traditional farm with the attentive and warm hospitality of our hosts and surrounded by an incredible environment where we can rest and savor the local gastronomy while immersing ourselves in their culture and lifestyle.

    Day 5: The lost valley of Obsidian
    We will wake up in the middle of the petrified lava fields and after enjoying an energetic breakfast to face the day, we will drive with our vehicles through the northern area of Myrdalsjökull glacier. We will drive and walk through black deserts and green volcanoes like the Maelifell, until we reach a secret and forgotten area. A valley full of obsidian just below a magnificent volcano. We will discover the secrets of this place with our guides.

    Night at the mountain hut.

    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. Our goal: to reach a hidden gem surrounded by volcanic deserts and the moors between the Torfajökull and Mýrdalsjökull glaciers. We will walk all day and in the afternoon we will go to Álftavatn. Night at the mountain hut.
    7
    Day 7: Deserts, canyons & the Eyjafjallajökull volcano
    Our last day of hiking. We will wake up in Álftavatn and we will spend the morning hiking around this area where we could visit different areas always with the enormous Myrdalsjökull glacier tongues on the distance. After this, we will depart on our vehicle to the north area of Eyjafjallajökull volcano, the one that erupted on 2010. We will drive through this area until we arrive to the small town of Hvolsvöllur, where we will spend the night in a great accommodation. *Last dinner & beverages not included
