Information for our Backpacking treks

Tuesday, July 7, 2015

We have had a heavy winter here in Iceland and an unusually cold spring.  We wanted to let you know that we might need to change the route on some of our backpacking treks due to rivers that can´t be crossed and heavier than normal snow conditions.  Unfortunately we can´t control the weather in Iceland as we had the coldest winter for 35 years.  We appreciate your understanding as we always try to do the trek as close to how it´s operated normally.  We ask our guest to bring gaiters for the trek and also to bring extra pair of socks as we will need to do some snow crossing on the trail.
