NORTH ICELAND

DESCRIPTION

North Iceland is home to Dettifoss, Europe’s most powerful waterfall; Husavik, Europe’s main whale watching mecca with sightings of the rare species of blue whale; the green valleys and ancient horse breeding mountain ranges of Skagafjordur; Lake Myvatn; the waterfall of the Gods known as Godafoss; Asbyrgi canyon; and the seas cliff of Hvitserkur. 

Your journey begins in North Iceland where you will enjoy an easy going trail run to energize the body after a long day of traveling. Afterwards, you will have time to go for a dip in the remote village of Dalvik before dinner in our lovely lodge. Each day you will enjoy breakfast before heading out with our local guide who will lead us onto breathtaking valleys, mountains, and waterfalls. We will have a chance to experience a very unique spa where beer ingredients are used in a spa treatment that has soothing and healing effects on the skin, hair, and circulatory system. During the next couple days, we will run along the canyon that feeds Dettifoss, Europe’s largest waterfall; past the rocks of echo into the horseshoe-shaped canyon of  Asbyrgi; and, onto mountain passes with awe-striking views of ancient fjords and remote country villages.

We mark the close of our Icelandic journey in bustling Reykjavic.

Until the next adventure!
