Accommodation


For Þórsmörk,In to the Highlands,Around the Glaciers and Landmannalaugar you will stay in mountain huts and/or guesthouses. Be prepared to stay crowded and shared with others. Toilet and shower facilities are available at most stops.

On the tour Hekla Wilderness we live simply. Always warm with shelter, but sometimes we sleep on mattresses on the floor. It's an adventure in the Icelandic wilderness.


Two options the last night

You have two options on all our longer tours ( Thórsmörk, In to the Highlands, Hekla Wilderness, Around the Glaciers and Landmannalaugar) regarding the last night. 
Either you spend it at the farm with barbecue, breakfast and drop off in Reykjavik BSÌ 11.00 am,
or (for those with early morning flights) spend last night at a guesthouse in Reykjavik without dinner but with breakfast.

Changing Horses

On our tours we change horse during the day. This gives us good fresh horses all day long. We heard the loose horses with us in a free running heard.


Luggage

It is better to pack in a hard suitcase rather than in soft bag as the baggage is carried in a trailer.
