Description

The Northern lands and polar regions hold a wild, latent, almost frozen energy… But volcanoes in Iceland are the exception. They create disorder and destabilise the eye. They take us into a turbulent world, never completely peaceful…

For aesthetes, sensitive souls, photographers, painters… Icelandic sceneries are worth any detour. Reliefs and colours are unique.

I have been hiking in Iceland for almost 10 years. As time goes by, the desire to return becomes stronger. Also, I want to discover new places that I haven’t seen in my previous explorations.

Rather than a definite plan, I propose to you a “Best of”. In other words, an anthologie of the most remarkable areas. I don’t want to take you where everybody goes, but to explore some remote corners in the Southern side of Iceland. The South is where we find the special places in the island. For example, we will see completely atypical and incredibly diverse landscapes…

These are the highlights of the trip I propose to you:

  • The Snæfellsnes peninsula, basaltic columns in Arnarstapi.

  • The fumaroles, solfataras and impressive pastel colours of the Kerlingarfjöll Massif. The hot springs of Hveravellir.

  • The many lakes in Veidivotn, the muddy and mighty waters of the Tungnaá river.

  • The secret beauties of the Torfajökull caldera.

  • The big Langisjór lake the green Fögrufjöll hills, the mighty Skaftá river.

  • The Mælifellsandur black desert, the green turquoise waters of Hólmsárlón lake, the hot springs of Strutslaug, the Eldgjá failure.

  • The eruptive fissure of Lakagigar.

  • The eastern buttress of the Mýrdalsjökull icecap.

This hiking tour around Southern Iceland is an incredible experience. If it tempts you, contact me and let’s live it together!

About the guide: Michael

Mountain Leader

Mountain leader, Snowkite and mountain bike instructor
During the last 15 years, I spent more than 1100 days in raids and expeditions to polar and boreal regions. Among those, more than 500 days were dedicated to expeditions and I traveled more than 7000 km skiing or kite-skiing... But let's forget big words and try to explain the deep convictions behind what I do:
To research.. to guess... to reveal the aesthetic character of a place (the image that we see in a magazine, or book, or online, but also the topographical map are great "dream providers" and play an essential role when choosing destinations).
To project myself... to draw my own path. And once I'm on the field, to tack... to browse... to prospect... to explore... until I have a good and detailed mental image of the territory. Pure geographic curiosity. To which is added the assurance of finding, by listening, searching in the space, hidden gems.
Let's take Iceland as an example: at the same time vast and limited, incredibly rich topographically, this country is perfect for a "profound" journey. There, more than anywhere else, I zigzag, tack, climb, walk on the edges, approach the heart of the lava flows and of the canyons. Since that is where the soul of a territory is!
In Iceland, and actually everywhere, I am excited by the intimate knowledge of the terrain. And this is as well what my pictures will show.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
