1 Borgafjörður Eystri
The most isolated and picturesque of the East Fjord towns, famed for its puffins, shattered mountains and stiff hiking trails.
Spend five days tackling one of Iceland’s most adventurous hikes, through the wild and remote rhyolite highlands between Staffafell farm and Snæfell.
Spend an hour skidding across the massive outrunning glaciers of Europe’s largest ice cap by four-wheel-drive or snowmobile.
Watch powder-blue icebergs breaking off the front of a glacier and drifting downstream to the sea – where they wash up, crystal clear, on the black-sand beach.
Occupying a plateau between two glaciers, this national park has hot springs, wind-scoured peaks, a famous waterfall and easy walking across heathland.
This remote string of volcanic craters was the site of Iceland’s most destructive recorded eruption.
