Wild West Iceland - Hornstrandir Multi Day Hike

1.00

“As the Wildest stretch of Coast left in Iceland, Hornstrandir is both remote and harch, whilst being stunningly beautiful and fertile…” - Jón Joel, Head Guide

Experience Hornstrandir, the wildest piece of coast in Iceland, where Arctic fox live unafraid of humans and fjords lie empty nearly the whole year round. This most Northerly part of the Icelandic Westfjords is a protected Nature Reserve and can only be reached during the short summer by small boat. If you want to really experience the vast wildness of the Icelandic Fjords, then this 6 Day tour is something you should not miss!

Do want to leave the busy streets and paved roads of civilization? Perhaps step away from the busy tourist areas of Iceland?

If it was a yes to the questions above, well The Nature Reserve of Hornstrandir is perfect for you! This area is Wild, Rugged and stunningly Beautiful.

During this incredible experience you will have the chance to see an area of Iceland almost no other tourist sees, an area without crowds or stress. During each of the four hiking days we hike between 6-8 hours, taking our time searching for wildlife, daring photo opportunities, peaceful coves and exciting stories.
