Guided backpacking tour in the Hornstrandir Nature Reserve in Iceland´s Westfjords.
Accommodation in tents.
Trip difficulty: 4 out of 5 possible. Rated: Challenging.
The Hornstrandir nature reserve is an isolated area of magnificent untouched natural beauty and wildlife. From the sea sheer basalt mountains stretch to the sky, chaotically divided by deep fjords and valleys. At the coast the relentless power of the ocean has moulded towering sea cliffs richly populated by seabirds and some of the alcoves and scurries of the coast are home to an abundance of seals and here the arctic fox wanders in its natural environment. The Lost Fjords trip is a full on backpacking trip where we are self sufficient, carrying our equipment and sleeping in our own tents along the way. You can be sure that trekking through the Hornstrandir will leave you amazed and packed with memories that will last a lifetime.
