Arctic Adventures in Iceland operates many hiking day trips from Reykjavík in South West Iceland, from Skaftafell in South East Iceland and from Ísafjörður in the Westfjords.
These include, among many others hikes, the ever popular hot spring river hike in Reykjadalur, just 40 minutes from Reykjavík, climbs to the top of the Hekla Volcano, Snæfellsjökull Glacier, and the summit of the highest mountain in Iceland, Hvannadalshúkur in Skaftafell... Also be sure to check out the super scenic adventure hike to the new volcanoes of Móði & Magni from the 2010 eruption at Eyjafjallajökull... and every thing in between! We also guide many multi day treks out in the magnificent Icelandic nature. The classic Iceland hikes include walking the famous Laugavegur trail, exploring the distant Hornstrandir Nature Reserve and wandering through the deserted inlets of East Iceland. Finally we offer a big selection of glacier hiking day trips, both from Reykjavík to the Mýrdalsjökull Glacier and from Skaftafell on the Vatnajökull.
