“We are thinking of holiday in Iceland and would like only some of it organized.
We would like to be able to do some walking with or without guide, maybe on glacier or volcanoes. We would also be interested in talking to folks so a guide who has stories and can tell us about Iceland. The idea is to stay in Reykavik for a few days then set off with or without anyone then come back to Reykavik for a few days... any suggestions? Would be interested to see aurora borealis volcano walk glacier waterfalls may be some days in the national park etc ... our dates would be roughly 10 days in April. Thank you for suggestions”

Pleased to meet you and thanks for showing interest in Iceland.
Would you be interested to do a private guided trip for few days or are you thinking to do daytours and have your own vehicle ?
At the moment I would recommend few hikes for you which do need quite a bit of phisical level to finish, but of course there is always possibility to shorten or choose alternatives.
I have 3 day hikes that could be of interest for you but of course they are all dependent on the weather.
- Tindfjalla mountaineering; This is approx 5 hour hike on snowshoe ending with a little more technical alpine bit to get to the summit. The day is around 12 hours with the super jeep drive up to the place we start the hike.
- Thorsmork hike; Would probably be in a snowshoe around the thorsmork area, approx 4 hours of walking. This day would be around 10hours with the super jeep drive to Thorsmork.
- Fimmvörðuháls trail; one of the most beautiful trails in Iceland could be done for this season as well. However it would need to be hiked in snowshoe but that´s fun as well. This is though quite a challenge and could be estimated 12 hours of hiking to finish the trail.
Other than hiking, we have quite a lot of options for this period of time which would be fun to introduce to you.
- super jeeping
but my personal favorite is the overnight trips, where you could stay in the mountains for 1-2 nights and do activities from there. We have different options, but I highly recommend our Midgard adventure which is a 3 day trip to the center of Iceland, staying at a mountain hut which my grandfather build. There is no electricity, but toilet and fireplace to keep everyone warm after long activity days.
Looking forward to hear your thoughts and hopefully assist you with putting together an itinerary that would suite your travel.
