Hiking Tours - Hiking

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!

North Iceland

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
