Trekking at the Arctic Circle
This tour is designed for those who want to take the time to delve deeply into Icelandic nature and experience the undiscovered beauties far away from crowded roads and tourist routes.
In September it is pretty quiet in Iceland and meadows shine in violet tones, with blueberries everywhere. This fascinating 6-day trek ends with a very traditional Icelandic event: the sheep round-up in a small village.
September is often very sunny and temperatures are pleasant for walking. If we are lucky we already have the chance of seeing the first northern lights of the season. The area is a walker's paradise with magnificent coastline views.
The walking time per day is 3 to 6 hours, and we will take it easy. Overnight accommodation will be in secluded mountain huts.
