Hiking and Horses Solo Adventure in Iceland

Hiking and Horses Solo Adventure Iceland

Four-star Hotel Husafell in West Iceland welcomes solo travelers with ‘Hiking and Horses,’ a new four-day adventure package available until October 31.

Amid volcanic and glacial landscapes in West Iceland, guests travel on horseback, hike nature trails, experience backcountry hospitality at a family-run horse farm, and mingle with fellow travelers on a nature and heritage walk around Husafell.

Independent spirits can customize their journey with trips to nearby Langjokull glacier and the world’s largest lava cave, as well as on-property activities like outdoor thermal swimming, Northern Lights hunting and mountain biking.

Iceland’s small size, low crime-rate, friendly citizenry of English-speaking residents and transformative travel experiences make it an attractive destination for the rapidly growing solo travel trend.

• 3 night stay at Hotel Husafell, a member of National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World
• Private hiking in Husafell Nature Reserve with local expert guide
