At last: backpacking. To some, backpacking means a bunch of youngsters with Interrail passes in their hands, standing on a train platform somewhere in Europe, using sign language to get on their right train – the backpacking experience simply meaning that your suitcase is on your back. Our idea of backpacking is a little different.
To us, backpacking means carrying everything on your back – and that means all clothes, food, and camping equipment – while out in wild nature. The backpacker does not necessarily follow a beaten path but treads his/her own trail that may be, at times, a bit unusual. The perk of a backpacking tour is that the backpacker can walk into remote terrain and be utterly alone in nature – king or queen of the wilderness. Our Núpsstaðaskógar to Skaftafell tour offers guests the chance to trek between the foothills of the biggest glacier in Europe, Vatnajökull. Five days in the wilderness solely enjoying the powers of untouched nature is a meditation for the soul. You won’t be the same person after this experience.
For the serious backpackers, we have the Coast to Coast - The Iceland Traverse tour – a life-changing trip that follows the volcanic rift from the north coast to the south coast and across the highlands of Iceland. The trek is divided into five legs, so you can participate in any leg of the tour or trek all five legs for an epic month-long experience.
The variety of options means that there is something for everyone. This is the beauty of exploring Iceland: there are no limits. You have a wealth of journeys to choose from. Join us – sign up.
We look forward to seeing you with us next summer!
