Iceland : Reyjavik >> Reykjanes >> Highlands >> South >> East >> North >> Westfjords >> West .  Dates -Aug 12th - 20th Aug'17

 

  • It’s a Backpacking - Camping - Road trip - The plan is to drive around the beautiful country , explore the natural beauty in the most natural way by camping in wild or sleeping in mountain cabins or stay at a backpack hostel or just pitch a tent wherever applicable. 

  • The trip is a mix of little of everything in Iceland starting from the capital city then exploring the geothermal region , further moving on  and exploring the beautiful south of country where you have gorgeous waterfalls and glaciers then heading to Highlands - known as untamed beauty only if words could speak beauty , going slow stopping wherever you want , then heading to the East we explore the coast side of country later heading to North where you get urban feel of the country again , wait lots more coming now we are heading to the best kept secret of Iceland and that's West Fjord's - One word Magnificent - You need to a big dreamer or just throw your imagination far - that's Iceland , later we head to the west part of country spend some leisure time and then drive back to the capital where we end the trip by a small party - If you feel all of this and want to be part of this - You need to come onboard.

  • The trip is tuff as it is a very big road trip and would involve camping in wild , sleeping in mountain cabins , driving and lot more.

  • This trip is an experience in itself which comes once in a life - Iceland - Nature at it's purest.

  • The package cost is 1,16,000 INR  . The trip cost would be dynamic and would largely vary with time due to lot of factors.

  • Come one Come all - No Age limit - but we are going to do a small fitness and your travel background check for this trip. If you got the passion to do this - Most Welcome.

  • We would be driving from Reykjavik to Reykjavik - the car would be fully equipped for summer driving - A special focus on safety , halts , accommodations , food , hours of driving everyday , route and lot more research will be shared with you so that you equally participate in this trip like a traveller.

  • Having a tent and sleeping bag is compulsory - if not would be informed to you as and when time arrives.

  • Iceland is an expensive country so we need to keep an eye on the budget all the time.

 

Trip to Iceland is a gift to my friend from Zarnesti whom I met while travelling in France. It’s her dream which she shared with me back in 2014 which later became mine. It's been a long journey. “ Happiness Is Real When Shared ”
