2009 - Walking Holiday in Iceland
Iceland is one of nature’s greatest showpieces, offering a great experience and great walks.
Nowhere on earth are the forces of nature so evident as in Iceland. This dynamic land of fire and ice and big panoramas of near-pristine wilderness is best appreciated on foot, but it is a country of few roads, few people and maps in an alien alphabet, so to discover this surreal landscape you need a local guide.
We’ve designed this holiday for the average weekend walker. Experienced British and Icelandic guides will lead each day’s walk, which will be between 10 and 14 km (six and 9 miles). You’ll discover gigantic waterfalls, deep river gorges, dramatic cliffs, black sand deserts, glaciers and icebergs and much more. Also, the unique Arctic flora is at its most colourful during autumn and it’s a birders paradise.
After a direct flight to Reykjavik, you will drive along the southern scenic coast road to Skaftafell National Park, which is home to the great Vatnajökull icecap – the world’s third largest icecap. This is one of the best and most beautiful walking areas in Iceland, with icecaps, glacial lakes and floating icebergs, mountain plateaux, rivers, massive waterfalls and basalt columns. You’ll spend the next 7 days getting to know this area beautiful landscape in depth.
You will be staying for 7 nights in a relaxing, comfortable and friendly hotel at the entrance gate to Skaftafell National Park. Everything is included, so there are no hidden extras.
10 – 15 walkers.
£1,995 per person, fully inclusive.
