Highland Tours


Explore Iceland's wilderness from Mid June - End August

Images from Landmannalaugar.JPGDuring the 'Age of the Settlement,' which lasted from 874 – 930, few Vikings braved the wild desolate Icelandic interior, only outlaws banished from society took refuge in its chilly expanses. Today the vast region of the interior is still completely uninhabited, our founder Guðmundur Jónasson, was the pioneer who opened up the highlands for todays travelers. Let us take you to the most famous highland areas. You will cross through mighty rivers, see magnificent mountains and glaciers. Guðmundur Jónasson Travel will organize your ultimate adventure in Iceland. Here some examples of possible highland tours in Iceland.
