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.

Just returned from the Northwoods Women's edventure trip and it was spectacular! The scenery was magnificent, the accommodations cozy and the daily activities were varied, informative and exhilarating! I cannot say enough about the two naturalists at the North Lakeland Discovery Center, Licia and Annie, who took care of all the myriad details, including last minute schedule changes to accommodate weather updates. Also, the speakers and recreation guides were passionate and truly engaged the group in the history and ecology of the area. I even got to experience the thrill of riding an E-bike! I highly recommend this marvelous, colorful trip, especially if you live in an area where autumn can be subtle.
This trip had just the right amount and variety of activity. Loads of fun in a beautiful place! Who knew there was so much to discover practically in my own backyard?
I've been on many scuba diving trips, educational/cultural adventures and international travels. This was the best-organized and executed by FAR. All accommodations were very clean and welcoming. Our guides were knowledgeable and responsive to our individual interests in the natural world. I signed up for trip ONE WEEK ahead and thought--oh, I know what to pack! But, I didn't for THIS trip. Tara's packing list SAVED me. Her careful instructions let me bring all the RIGHT items. Food and activities were excellent. We were taken care of SO very well. Tara kept everything running right on schedule, which is sometimes challenging if cultures run on island time! I have wanted to see Baja and the Sea of Cortez for many years and finally got my wish. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
thank you Cynthia for this rave review. It means to me that you took the time to write for everyone to see. It was a pleasure to meet you and to have you on our adventure. Hope to see you again! -- tara

Most amazing trip I've ever been on and I've traveled to many places! I wanted an adventure and I got it. Plenty of physical activities in the 10-days including hiking, glacier trekking, swimming, horseback riding, and kayaking. All the ladies in our group - along with our two guides - were so much fun! Would totally book another trip with Green Edventures! - Nikki
I can't say enough positive things about this trip! The guide and trip leader were knowledgeable, entertaining, professional, and SO fun to travel with! The planned activities kept us busy and gave us an excellent feel for what Iceland had to offer. I definitely want to go back. The pre-trip information prepared me well for all possibilities of weather and challenge, and I realized that before this trip, I had been missing the camaraderie of traveling with an all-women group. I would definitely do another trip with Green Edventures! Cheryl

I just returned from the Wisconsin Women's Tour and couldn't have asked for a better trip! For me, the amount and type of activity were perfect. Who know there was so much to discover practically in my own backyard?
