Iceland
GO WILD. GET PACKING! - Backpack Inner Iceland
The primal force of nature is no where more apparent than in Iceland. Traveling from north to south approximately 8 to 12 miles per day, we encounter beauty of staggering proportions. We backpack a haunting expanse of black lava desert ringed with black lava mountains and large explosive craters with steep, rust-colored rims filled to the brim with lakes of aquamarine water.
Puts you in the thick of Iceland's uninhabitable, otherworldly countryside.
Our custom-mapped trek spans the volcanic region and the uninhabited highlands of south central Iceland. We'll take in some of the most breathtaking footpaths in the south - like the Fjallabak Wilderness near the Myrdalsjokull icecap. This is in the region with the largest active volcanic system and geothermal area in Iceland, where repeated ice-covered eruptions have created the rugged and colorful rhyolite mountains that surround the area.

By hiking in late summer we will catch the earliest appearances of the aurora borealis. With more than 100 fjords, 100 volcanoes, 10,000 waterfalls, glaciers that cover 11% of the country and geothermal activity that makes the land itself vibrate; our Inner Iceland Trek puts you in the thick of the dramatic extremes of Iceland's otherworldly countryside.
