We love hiking!

Hiking trails

We love to hike, and Iceland is a great place for it. There are no dangerous animals, amphibians, reptiles, or insects; there is nothing that can harm you except perhaps the weather, volcanoes, earthquakes, geothermal hot springs, and bubbling mud pools. All you need to do is read about your hiking trail, stay on marked trails, and watch the web page from the Icelandic Meteorology Office. In fact, there is nothing that can kill you except your own stupidity! :-) There are numerous marked hiking trails around Reykjavík within a short driving distance. We know a lot of beautiful hiking paths and can tailormade for your ability and stamina, so if you are interested, contact us, and we will take you there. We categorize the trails as easy, not so easy, and hard.
