Iceland Walking Tours

Walk on the Land of Fire & Ice

Our Iceland Walking trip is a journey into the unforgettable; from soaring mountains, rumbling volcanoes and lava fields to bubbling geysers, hot springs and glaciers—each day’s a new adventure. By hiking craters to coastline, traversing hot rivers and trekking to towering waterfalls, the sense of discovery always looms large. Naturally, we balance our explorations with the comforts of Icelandic hospitality. As a favoured trip among B&R veterans, your Iceland awaits.

Trip Details



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.


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.



“I can’t say I really ‘work out,’ but I’m in good shape and am relatively active.”


“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”


“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”


“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”


“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard how I like to do that.”

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


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.


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.

What's Included

  • All hotel accommodation
  • All breakfasts, five lunches and all dinners, including wine
  • Services of B&R guide(s) and support van
  • All special events and private tours
  • Detailed maps, route suggestions and water bottle
  • Use of two lightweight, telescoping walking sticks
  • All baggage transportation
  • All transportation from rendezvous to drop-off
  • All gratuities for baggage, porters and hotel service

At Your Service

We take pride in choosing guides who are not only exceptional travelling companions, but who’ll go far beyond the call of duty to ensure an unforgettable experience.

“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.”
