About the tour


For all trekking enthusiasts we have this spectacular Five Day Trek in Vatnajökull National Park. It's characterized by its wild and quiet environment as it's known only to few people. With the Laki volcanic area on our left hand side we drive to Djúpá River and over the next five days make our way over mountain ranges, glaciers, rivers and sands until we reach Nupstadaskogur, a little oasis between the large rivers flowing from Vatnajökull Glacier. Each day involves about 5-7 hours of trekking, and each night we set up our camp in remote areas with great views overlooking the vast wilderness of the area. There are no roads anywhere close to our hiking route, so we are completely self-sufficient as we carry all we need in our backpacks, including: tents, stoves and food. It's an exciting adventure for anyone who wants to go off the beaten track to remote and beautiful areas that only a handful of people have seen.
