Every year we take several trips to Iceland to revisit our favourite places, to find new ones and to meet some of our suppliers. This year we are combining a summer visit to the Thorsmork valley with time in South and West Iceland and we’ve decided to take a few extra passengers. We are looking for 2 people who enjoy being outdoors, are good walkers or hikers and are easy going to travel with. This is a trip for you and us to spend time sightseeing and hiking, and with some flexibility to accommodate individual sightseeing requests. After reading the summary of the holiday below, please contact us with the questions that will occur to you both about the plans we have made and ideas that we’ve inspired you with.
WHAT’S THE PLAN?
- 3 days of varied and flexible sightseeing based on South Iceland, West Iceland and the Golden Circle to see many of Iceland’s most popular places – waterfalls, geyser, glaciers and volcanoes
- We love real Iceland, so we’ll stay in local farmhouses and mountain huts
- Snowmobile? Into the Glacier? Horse riding? Swimming? Surfing? There are opportunities to include adventurous activities on the sightseeing days
- Add in spa or lagoon bathing if you wish
- A look-see in Reykjavik and an overnight stay in the city
