Dramatic Iceland – walking holidays that thrill at every turn

Prepare to be amazed by the scenery in Iceland. Walking here is truly thrilling thanks to the dramatic combination of glacier-topped volcanoes, black-sand beaches, enigmatic rock formations and thundering waterfalls. Best of all, our walking holidays in Iceland are aimed at anyone of average fitness, meaning that you don’t need to be a keen hiker to experience the sense of adventure that walking in Iceland brings. For moderate routes and a good overview of all that this unique country is about, head to the west coast of Iceland: walking on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula is the perfect introduction to these continually evolving landscapes. Alternatively, for particularly easy walking, Iceland’s south coast is the best option. Here, you can explore the wondrous landscapes beneath two icecaps: Eyjafjallajökull, whose waterfall, Skógafoss, rivals the glacier for attention; and imposing Vatnajökull, Europe’s largest glacier.
