Iceland Adventure Travel

Land of Fire & Ice

Welcome to a land of untamed natural beauty and wild abandon. Our five-day winter adventure includes two nights in Reykjavik and two nights in the countryside where conditions for viewing the Aurora are optimal. The best time to see the northern lights in Iceland is from September through March. They can be seen anywhere in Iceland and are most like to appear on cold, calm and clear evenings. Travelling in the comfort of our own 4X4 with a personal guide, we set off for a real winter wonderland adventure!

Signature

We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

Bistro

These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Hotels

Hotel Borg, Reykjavik

Hotel Borg combines old time elegance with modern style and overlooks the beautiful square of Austurvöllur across from the Icelandic parliament and the cathedral.

Hotel Ranga, Hella

With a noticeable lack of timber in the country, Rangá was entirely constructed from imported Canadian lumber, from the walls to the furniture to the remarkable bar stools (watch out for them). With just 38 rooms, it is intimate and comfortable. The location sits at the mouth of the highlands with spectacular access to Hekla, one of the country’s most impressive volcanoes.

MORE INFORMATION

Activity Level

Recreational

The terrain we cover is incredibly varied. We’ll enjoy some gentle hikes and additional activities may include ice climbing, glacier hiking and caving. Please be aware that hikes and/or activities may have to be changed last-minute due to climate conditions, which are highly unpredictable in Iceland. Please also note that drives can be long; this enables us to take in a huge variety of scenery and experience a multitude of landscapes.

Gear

Walking Sticks &
Hip Holsters

Included with all walking trips are Leki telescoping walking sticks and custom-made padded hip holsters, which comfortably carry one full half-litre water bottle. And while the walking sticks get “recycled” for use by another B&R traveller, the holsters are yours to keep at trip’s end.

Accolades

“Iceland really is an amazing place. In certain ways, more incredible in the winter even than in the summer. Our favorite day was probably the day of our EPIC, mind-blowing day-long ATV trip to the top of the glacier-covered Eyjafjallajokull Volcano, on a perfect blue-sky day, but every day was tremendous. After our summer trip we had high expectations for this trip; I was actually a little worried they might not be met. In fact, they were totally blown away.”
