While many tours in Iceland make pit stops at glaciers—the country is, after all, full of them—fewer take you over them and close enough to discover their interesting features. With this tour, take an easy glacier hike to see ice formations, crevasses, and water cauldrons that you’d miss just stopping for a look. Your climbing crampons are provided, and the guided hike is offered 2-3 times a day so it’s easier to fit into your schedule.

Iceland: Landmannalaugar ecotour with PhD guide

Iceland: Landmannalaugar ecotour with PhD guide

star-5
1
Landmannalaugar is one of a kind and no surprise it is one of the most popular natural attraction in Iceland. The geological formations with their stunning colors and geothermal heat are super motives for the eye or camera. Your guide has a Ph.D. in botany and has a deep understanding of the environmental issues dealt with in Iceland. During the drive, the elevation increases and you can definitely sense a change. The vegetation changes, sometimes the weather changes and so does the scenery of course. We drive very close to the majestic Hekla volcano which has erupted five times since 1947 and is due to erupt again any day. We then follow the narrow roads into the mountains, cross a few rivers and are soon in Landmannalaugar. And on the way we can - of course - stop as often as you like for photos. Landmannalaugar from Hella - two perfect locations!

If you would like to experience the Icelandic horse both in terms of riding and information, but doesn’t feel like going on an outdoor ride, this is the option for you. It’s a perfect pick on a bad-weather day, for families with smaller kids but also for anyone who might just prefer an indoor arena experience.

Furthermore, the ride in the arena will give you a chance to really make use of your instructor and gain new riding skills while having fun. Since we specialize in small groups, there will be plenty of space for all riders in our big arena and if someone might prefer to watch, there is space on the tribune. Finish off the tour in our cafeteria with a hot drink. We are located 1 hour drive south of Reykjavik. Age limit: 10 years Weight limit: 110 kg/242 lbs
