A great one way hike into the mountains, including the
chance to bathe in a natural hot river. It doesn’t get
more Iceland than this! A great hike for experienced
hikers, but physically demanding. Group leaders
should be in good physical shape and have
mountain experience. Distance: 18 km/12 miles.
Difficulty level: Moderate/Challenging.
Starts out the same way as “Hiking trail” but continues
to a scout hut in the mountains for an overnight stay.

hike, only suitable for experienced mountain-hikers.
Distance: 25 km/15.5 miles. Difficulty level: Challenging.

day? Let the coach do most of the hard work, leaving
you with only 3 km/2 mile hike each way.

What Client’s Say

Our Boy Scout Troop ran a week-long highadventure trip to Iceland in August. We had a fantastic time! It is an easy nonstop flight from Boston. The staff at Úlfljótsvatn Scout Centre was very helpful in planning our trip, and gave us great suggestions for activities and places to visit.
Accommodations at the camp were comfortable and the food outstanding. Much of the success of our trip was due to the support and advice from our new scouting friends at Úlfljótsvatn. There is so much to see and do in beautiful Iceland — we can’t wait to go back!
