Akureyri is beautifully located in the longest fjord of Iceland, surrounded by mountains and sea. Hiking those mountains and climbing those peaks far away from the crowd is a unique way to explore this untouched area. Every hike in our fjord is a treat for body and soul. You will not easily forget the view from those mountain tops and the feeling as if being on the top of the world. We go off the beaten track and away from the crowd. If you are fit and wearing the right gear it won't matter how the weather turns out, because all our hikes are unforgettable outdoor experiences.

Participants should be fit and up for a fairly challenging hike. We usually go off the beaten track and sometimes come across loose stones or patches of snow.
