Iceland is one of those rare places on Earth that feels more science fiction than fact, even when you’re actually there. Get as close as you can to the incredible scenery by hiking the challenging route of the Laugavegur Trail, where you’ll pass multi-coloured slopes, ice caves, and sweeping landscapes. Camp out for four nights, and enjoy valley hikes in the area with the group. Whether it’s from the inclines or just from the view, prepare to have your breath taken away.
