Hornvík Heights and Sights 2 Day Hiking Tour

June 6 - September 10 3x a week 2 days West Iceland - Meet on location Challenging Min 16 years old

Join us for a hike in the heart of Hornstrandir Nature Reserve, where you can take in all of its natural beauty, including Hornbjarg bird cliffs and Hornvík bay.

Summer on the nature reserve is magical. The Arctic Fox emerge out from their dens searching for food, the midnight sun shines straight into Hornvík bay and it’s very cosy to sit around the table in our basecamp enjoying a nice cup of tea whilst getting to know your fellow travellers.

The wildlife in Hornvík is astonishing, with over 6 million seabirds nesting on the cliffs, Arctic Foxes that are so curious that you can get up close and personal with them, and many species of shorebirds that call the bay their home. The nature is pristine and breathtaking, this is an experience you’re sure to never forget.

On this tour we’ll sleep in comfortable 2 person tents and have a big separate cooking/eating tent which is heated, where we spend time socialising and drying off our gear!
