Walking/ Hiking all around North Iceland
During recent years, services for walkers and hikers have increased
significantly in North Iceland tourism.
The hallmark of North Iceland for walkers is its wide variety of
trails. In the vicinity of Sauðárkrókur, for example, there are easy
routes for the whole family, while quite demanding terrain awaits in the
next mountain range to the east, such as near Hólar in Hjaltadalur
valley and at many places in the Tröllaskagi mountains between
Skagafjörður and Eyjafjörður. The peninsula east of Eyjafjörður, as well
as many other areas, displays remnants of deserted communities; anyone
interested in the Icelandic sagas, on the other hand, might try the
Húnavatn counties for tracing the steps of heroes like Grettir.
Many mountainous areas have huts owned by the touring clubs for
hiker accommodation, whereas the lowland parts of North Iceland offer an
assortment of lodging in both urban and rural areas.
There is no difficulty linking your walk to fishing, a museum, a boat
ride, whale watching, observing seals, river rafting, horse riding or
whatever else - plenty is happening in North Iceland.
Just put on
your hiking boots - here is where you will find adventure!
