About this trip

 

Iceland women’s hiking tour and adventure is designed to challenge you and to give you breath-taking views of cascading waterfalls, magical green meadows, rainbows (so many rainbows) blue glaciers and steaming geysers. Now is your chance to experience the Iceland not many travelers will ever venture out of Reykjavik to see.


Iceland offers a massive, in-your-face, raw landscape to experience nature’s elements of earth, wind, fire, and ice and to interact with a culture over 1,000 years old! The food is delicious too! Many of the vegetables are grown in greenhouses powered by geothermal energy all year. 


Family farms raise farm-to-table beef and lamb in humane and environmentally friendly ways.

Participants will experience a variety of scenic and rewarding day hikes tailored to the group’s interest and skill levels, sea kayaking, glacier trekking, riding Icelandic Horses on black sand beaches, and soaking in hot springs. The grand finale is 15 mile hike over 3200 ft in elevation on Fimmvörðuháls pass, a trail National Geographic named one of the best hikes in the world. You will pass 24 waterfalls, lava fields, and between two glaciers. If you are looking for an active adventure with a like-minded group of travelers and future life-long friends, this is the trip for you.

AMAZING! Absolutely amazing, from start to finish. The attention to detail and care provided by both Tara and Kristin was above all. I made lifelong friends I didn't know I needed and have unforgettable memories to last a lifetime. It was educational and intimate with just the right number of fellow viking sisters. Between glacier trekking, horseback riding, and the countless waterfalls an adventure is guaranteed. From the fantastic food to the amazing views Iceland provides; everything felt like a dream...but it's your real life! If you're even slightly considering going to Iceland this is the way to do it, you will not be disappointed.
Experience of a lifetime!! A VERY well planned out trip that kept us busy all day. We never had to figure out where to go or how to get there, the hardest decision of the day was deciding on what delicious food to choose for supper. If we ever had a problem or a question, our guides had or found the answer for us. So glad I found this travel group, I'm planning on using it again!!!
I cannot thank Tara and Green Edventures enough for putting together this fabulous trip. It was so wonderful to be in Iceland with other active and interested women. The itinerary was well thought out and the activities were varied and gave a comprehensive overview of the culture, geology, flora/fauna, and FOOD of Iceland. I felt challenged on many of the activities but ALWAYS felt safe and supported and appreciated our local guide's experience and input. I feel stronger and more confident both emotionally and physically due to the opportunities provided. I will definitely be participating in more Green Edventures!
We had a great time! The guides were amazing. The activities were varied and challenging. The food was wonderful!
My son loved this trip. He had quite the adventure and learned a lot.
