HIKING AND TREKKING IN ICELAND
Even though you are just taking a walk through the town, walking is a wonderful way to get to know your surrounding. In Reykjavík there are many walking trails located in the city itself leading you to nature and scenic sights. Such trails can be found in other towns too.
This is the classic way of getting to know the Icelandic countryside - either by walking cross-country with a map and compass or following one of the marked out routes. For longer tours you need to be fit and well equipped and well prepared. A wide variety of organized and special-interest tours are available to walking and hiking enthusiasts.
