About the tour

Vatnajökull Backpacking Trek

Hiking in the Remote Highlands of Iceland

For anyone looking to be reunited with nature, this is your trek! We will wade across glacier rivers and encounter anything from harsh lava fields to lush and fertile valleys. This 6 day backpacking tour will take you on a journey from civilization and into the remote wilderness where the view that greets you is nothing but the vast nature of the Icelandic highlands. You will be met by glaciers, glacial rivers and glacier lagoons, waterfalls, lava fields and get a chance to soak in a hot spring. Since this is a self-sufficient backpacking adventure participants will carry all their personal gear such as clothes, sleeping bag, insulation mattress, etc. The tents, stoves, fuel and other group gear, is distributed evenly among the group so everyone carries a fair share. There are 2 people sharing each tent, but single tents can also be rented.
