What you'll do

This tour includes three fabulous days of trekking. Hike by the breathtakingly beautiful Frostastaðavatn Lake and visit Ljótipollur, an incredibly beautiful red volcano crater filled with bright-blue water. The name Ljótipollur means úgly pool’, so it seems that whoever named it had a sense of humor! See the stunning volcano, Mount Brennisteinsalda, often said to be the most colorful mountain in Iceland, close to the base of this mountain you will see surreal clouds of steam wafting from the geothermal vents. On this trip, you also get the chance to reach the summit of Suðuhámur, another colorful and stunning rhyolite mountain. You will be amazed by the stark beauty of the Vondugil Canyon at the edge of the Laugahraun lava field.

I am a trained, professional expedition guide and mountain leader. Every year I made about 80 hikes.

While I earn my main living leading groups in far off places such as Kilimanjaro, Svalbard, Nepal, Peru and the high Atlas with Iceland's leading expedition touring company, I understand that a worthwhile adventure can be closer to home.
