2. ALWAYS SMALL GROUP TRIPS

Iceland is a breathtaking destination that can be dramatically accentuated by the right group hiking experience. Or if visitors feel like they’re being herded around like cattle, it can be quite the opposite. Our trips prioritize quality over profit and are capped at 12 guests and 2-3 guides. Our small groups allow Wildland guests to enjoy a personalized journey where each person feels a deeper connection with their guides, the landscape and their overall experience.

MORE ABOUT ICELAND HIKING VACATIONS

WHY AN ICELAND HIKING VACATION?

Iceland has become one of the world’s most popular trekking destinations, and for good reason. It is a charming island with wonderful, clean and safe cities; jaw-dropping mountain scenery; and backcountry huts that allow for cozy wilderness accommodations. What most astonishes our Iceland guests is the diversity of scenery they experience: towering peaks, volcanoes, black sand deserts, geysers, hot springs, waterfalls, glaciers, ocean views, raging rivers, mountain lakes and more!

SHOULD I GO WITH AN ICELAND HIKING COMPANY?

Joining an Iceland hiking tour is something many visitors choose to do, and many choose to hike Iceland on their own. The advantages of trekking with an Iceland hiking company, like Wildland Trekking, are many:

  • We take care of all logistics, including permits, hut reservations, hotel accommodations in Reykjavík, local transportation, most meals, gear, and more. Iceland is a very expensive country with limited numbers of hotel rooms that fill up way in advance, so joining an all-inclusive tour, like Wildland Trekking’s trips, allows you focus 100% on hiking and trust everything is taken care of.
  • Increased level of safety by hiking with an expert, local Iceland trekking guide
  • Learn about the natural and cultural history of the landscapes you’re hiking through (Iceland has fascinating history!)
  • Enjoy wonderful backcountry cuisine prepared by your guide
  • Have supplies driven into certain huts to reduce pack weights (certain trips only)
