Travelling in the wild interior of Iceland is becoming increasingly popular, particularly when it involves bidding goodbye to the noise of modern life and heading on foot towards the peaceful mountains, with equipment and supplies in a backpack. Some of Iceland’s most popular hiking trails are introduced here: Kjalvegur, the Askja trail, Lónsöræfi, Laugavegur and Fimmvörðuháls. The author guides the reader along each day-hike, pointing out natural wonders on the way, indicating places to stop for the night and advising on equipment and options.
Each route is accompanied by a clear map and photographs. This book is intended for those taking their first steps in outdoor life as well as the seasoned hiker.
