Walking and Trekking in Iceland - Exploring The Land Of Ice and Fire

A country of extraordinary beauty, Iceland's incredible variety of volcanic and glacial landscapes makes it a unique destination for walking and trekking holidays. Its three national parks include the mighty Vatnaj?kull, largest national park in Europe.

The wide range of routes in this book introduce walkers and backpackers to this 'Land of Ice and Fire'. There are 100 days of walking in this guidebook, stretching over 1722km, split between 49 day walks and 10 multi-stage treks. They climb mountains, cross glaciers, pass lakes and explore coastlines and geothermal areas, and range from easy nature trails to challenging treks. So, there is enough variation to satisfy all kinds of walkers. The routes are spread all around Iceland, grouped into twelve regions. Detailed information is given at the start of each route or trekking stage, including distances, ascents, descents and the nature of the terrain to help indicate if the route is suited to your ability.

With Reykjavik now an established city-break destination, Iceland is easy to get to. Once there, the routes described include both popular and lesser-known trails, from coastal walks and off-island trails, to the remote interior and ice-caps. Most routes are signposted and waymarked, and a number of easy 'starter' treks and walks are included, but there are also rugged mountain routes and glacier crossings ? including the classic Laugavegur trail.

Despite Iceland's reputation for being expensive, this guide offers plenty of tips for budget travellers and full details on mountain huts, campsites and public transport. Walking and Trekking in Iceland will enable readers of all abilities, and all budgets, to explore all that's great about this unique destination.
