Tackle your first lava field, complete with legends straight out of the Icelandic Sagas before relaxing in a local school’s hot spring fed pool.

Admire desolate coves and crashing surf on a coastal hike on the Snaefellsnes peninsula. Summit a neighbouring volcano before experiencing the fabled Icelandic horse firsthand!

Walk to the UNESCO Word Heritage Site of Þingvellir, home of the world’s oldest parliament. Kick back in a natural hot tub with majestic lake views.

Climb aboard a super-comfortable “Super Jeep” for exploration of Landmannalaugur and Hekla Highlands, the “Icelanders’ Iceland.”

Take a trip out to the mystical Westman Islands to see their stunning topography and the largest puffin colony in the world. Visit a town buried in lava in 1973, the “Pompei of the North.”

Take a quick look around Iceland's capital Reykjavik before heading to airport for your departure.

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.

Activity Level

Avid

The terrain we cover is incredibly varied. We’ll enjoy some gentle walks along beaches and through rolling countryside and more strenuous walks in the mountains, along glaciers and through canyons. Additional activities include kayaking, horseback riding and spelunking. 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.

Accolades

“I can't pick the best moment, because every day blew me out of the water. It was a life changing trip and the memories of the sites, culture, and experience will forever be my go-to spot when having a bad day. Thank you B&R for the best time of my life.”
