The Hornstrandir Nature Reserve is a place of magnificent untouched beauty and wildlife. The sheer basalt mountains stretch from the sea to the sky, chaotically divided by deep fjords, secluded alcoves and valleys. At the coastline, the relentless power of the ocean has molded towering sea cliffs, richly populated by birds. Many of the alcoves and scurries of the coast are home to an abundance of seals. Inland, the crawling glaciers of the last ice age have hewn ancient mountain passes and lakes into the rugged peninsula and there, the Arctic Fox wanders in its natural environment.

On this 6-day getaway, we will carry all our food and camping equipment from fjord to fjord, traversing several mountain passes along the way. We will go around Mt. Kollur and from there start making our way towards Höfn in Hornvík, the heart of Hornstrandir Nature Reserve. This is a place of dramatic natural beauty and should not be missed out by anyone travelling in this area. There will be a resupply of food mid-way through the trip to keep pack weights down. This trip is run in cooperation with our local Icelandic partner, Borea.
