Details

With guided half day treks in Iceland costing £100 or thereabouts these adventure and sightseeing packed tours offer excellent value for money. for example, the 4 day Landmannalaugar trek is advertised with Trek Iceland at £1250pp! To reserve a place we require a £100 deposit and balance in full a month prior to the trip.

Andy will be flying out from Luton Airport on the 22nd June and returning to the same on the 14th July - Currently (5th Jan 2017) flights are just £75 return for these dates. Book early as the prices go up considerably as we get nearer the time - Andy is happy to take people to Luton from Cardiff or return them to Cardiff on these dates. Wow air flights from Bristol are currently not listed but are usually on Fridays. Cheap flights are available from Luton and Gatwick with Easyjet.

Andy will be running these small group tours in one vehicle and will supply all kit as required apart from sleeping bags and mats and personal clothing which out to be of good quality and include walking boots and waterproofs. You can bring your own tent but if you can travel with a 40 litre pack which is regarded as walk on cabin luggage then that will save you at least £40 in hold luggage fees. This is recommended as it’s better to travel light and space in the vehicle will be limited.

You are welcome to book two tours back to back and have two weeks visiting the highlights of this amazing country…

Prices are pp and exclusive of flights and food. All meet and greets and departures are at Keflavik airport.
