KJÖLUR

Between the glaciers! If you want to see as much as possible of our beautiful country then you should ride across the heart of Iceland on the ancient trail Kjölur. After our last Kjölur tour in 2017 was very successful we will offer 4 departures in 2020 again.

The ancient Kjölur trail has been used by Icelanders over the centuries when traveling to the annual summer parliament at Þingvellir, first held in 930 AD. We visit this historic site which became Iceland´s first National Park in 1930. When we arrive at the south we will visit and enjoy the Geysir hot spring area and Gullfoss Waterfall.

Traveling from Vatnsdalur in the North to Þingvellir in the South or vice versa right across the heart of Iceland we find ourselves traversing sandy deserts close to the mighty Langjökull and Hofsjökull Glaciers. Sheltered green valleys come as a surprise in this rugged terrain. Hveravellir is another highlight of this tour -  a geothermal area in the highlands where we can soak in a long hot bath under the Midnight Sun. This tour offers you the real experience of the icelandic highlands.

Accomodation in shared rooms in guesthouses, community centres and simple mountain huts. Please bring your own Sleeping bag!
