The best hiking trails on the largest volcanic island on Earth
Iceland is unique. As the largest volcanic island currently on Earth, its landscape continues to be determined by the forces of nature to this day. These forces have also created a formidable environment, which can only be fully experienced as a hiker. This book by Uwe Grunewald presents various hiking areas throughout the volcanic island. It describes 8 trekking tours and more than 40 hikes of varying lengths and difficulty.
Each of the 12 hiking areas presented here is exceptional with its own unique features. The inner and outer forces of the Earth have shaped landscapes of rugged and often archaic beauty. Iceland is certainly worth several visits and the impressions from your journeys are sure to remain with you.
