This trip features a diverse range of landscapes and leads us not only to the most renowned natural attractions in southern Iceland but also to more remote areas in the highlands. We traverse narrow pathways amidst lava covered in moss and verdant hills surrounding the Hengill volcano, making our way to the concealed Valley of Horses. Our journey continues through gentle grasslands to the stunning and shimmering Lake Thingvallavatn.
We visit the ancient site at the Thingvellir gorge, where Icelanders gathered from 930 to hold their parliament, and ride through forests and across the heather towards the hot springs at Geysir. Later we visit the Gullfoss waterfall and our route carries us into the uninhabited highland expanse, with the Langjökull glacier as a majestic backdrop. While heading eastward, we traverse the highland desert situated between the glacial rivers Hvitá and Þjórsá—the longest river in Iceland.
