Guided Walking Holidays - Icelandic Explorer Setting foot in the land of ice and fire is like taking a deep breath of fresh air into oxygen starved lungs. Iceland has vast open spaces and a landscape that pulses with continent dividing energy. Our paths take us through rocky lava fields, past€tive volcanoes and rushing rivers. Feel the spray from powerful waterfalls and walk through surprisingly verdant mountain highlands. Relax in a hot spring or delight in bubbling mud pools and witness unpredictable geysers. Simply put, Iceland invigorates your senses. Our first centre is Bifrost, minutes from western Iceland’s main walking highlights. The basalt landscape of the wide valley floor with its rivers and lakes is flanked by long mountain ridges and volcanic cones. The centrepiece is the three million year old near perfect volcanic cone of Baula. Next we move north to historic Akureyri, at the head of Eyjafjrdur, opening to the ocean just 25 miles south of the Arctic Circle. The surrounding flat-topped mountains are formed from ancient lava, carved by vast glaciers into steep-sided ridges, some still topped with ice. We walk from Akureyri and can make trips further afield to the tiny coastal towns of Olafsfjrdur or Husavk and include a day trip to My´vatn, a beautiful lake in an€tive volcanic area, a bird watchers paradise and surrounded by geothermal landscapes. From Akureyri, we cross the Interior Highlands, passing hot springs, majestic mountains and vast expanses of snow topped wilderness. We descend to the magnificent Gullfoss (Golden Waterfall). At Geysir Strokkur shoots boiling water into the air every few minutes. Our days journey ends at Hverageri, Icelands flower town edged by steaming geysers and mud pits. Our final night is spent in the capital, Reykjavk.
