Between Ice & Fire (Hekla to ocean)
SOUTH COAST & HIGHLAND + TREK MT HEKLA TO THE OCEAN
This trip is specially designed for those who are planning an outdoor holiday in Iceland, but are hesitating between taking part in a proper trek or discovering a larger part of this large, diverse island by 4x4 vehicle. The firs week is an overland journey on the South Coast with lots of wonderful, shorter walks. The second week is a serious trek, to discover the surrounding of the famous volcano Mout Hekla. Importantly though, it is supported i.e. a 4x4 truck carries all personal effects, heavy equipment and supplies.
The first week is our 6-day comfortable overland journey South Coast & Highlands
Highway Number One on the South part of Iceland is truly among the world’s most spectacular driving routes - a narrow black ribbon of tarmac running through ever changing sceneries. To it’s South, the immensity of the Atlantic Ocean, with more than 10000 miles of open water before the cost of Antarctica. We will discover the most secret part of the Southern Highlands and the strange but magnificent South Coast that hosts the huge Vatnajökull glacier. Hiking frequently, we will experience the stunning diversity of this “huge small land”. Stopping by small settlements such as Vík í Myrdal or Kirkjubæjarklaustur, we will also have a chance to meet the original Icelandic culture, the result of a long fight between this courageous people and nature’s harsh forces. To the North, a mysterious chaos of mountains, volcanoes and glaciers – and the highlands spirit is always calling you. But how to answer these calls? Well, we know some secret trails…
Between the tour and the trek we have a day of rest in a beautifull surrounding in a mountain hut in the heart of Fjallabak Nature Reserve
The second part of the trip is our famous 6-day Trek from Mt Hekla to the Ocean
A beautifull and demanding assisted trek crossing the most dramatic part of the highlands from Mount Hekla all the way to the shore of the ocean. Presenting no difficulty for good walkers, each member carries only a light daypack. Importantly though, it is supported i.e. a 4x4 truck carries all personal effects, heavy equipment and supplies. This walking trip is Specially suited for nature lovers, who dream of discovering the unique mountains and shore of Iceland by footEvery day involves an average of 6-8 hours hiking. And we appreciate the importance of good food, so we provide what we believe is the finest cuisine to be found in the Icelandic mountains! The isolation, for much of your time, is complete. It is just the mountains and ourselves. Most of the hiking is off-track, exploring hidden valleys, hot springs and numerous other features of the area. An incredible opportunity to experience everything that this incredible landscape has to offer the adventurous traveler.
