A hike into two completely different worlds

3-day vehicle-assisted hike, overnight in tent, full board.

This trip takes us to the centre of Iceland. The unique Kerlingarfjöll mountain range is one of the most magnificent, and least known, geothermal areas in Iceland, surrounded by high colourful rhyolite mountains. We will hike through valleys abounding with hot springs and fumaroles, up through mountain passes and into an entirely different world south of Hofsjökull glacier.
