Hotel Husafell adds new West Iceland hiking itineraries in off-the-beaten path locales.
Exploring Iceland’s glaciers, lava caves and remote natural wilderness just got easier with the launch of new hiking trails and an adventure package from Hotel Husafell luxury resort in West Iceland.
Iceland Cool Media and Hotel Husafell receive a grant from the Icelandic government to build up the hiking trail infrastructure and detailed trail map of Husafell Nature Reserve and to promote the area as a new hiking destination more accessible and safe to tourists with new signage, marked trails and themed walking paths.
Iceland’s New High-End Hiking and Glacier Adventure at Hotel Husafell Luxury Resort
Tucked away in the highlands in West Iceland, Husafell Nature Reserve’s lava-lands, glaciers, hot springs and waterfalls will soon be easily accessible to visitors. Starting August 1, Iceland’s eco-chic Hotel Husafell introduces a Luxury Hiking Adventure package including glacier ice caves, lava tubes and hiking amid unparalleled natural scenery on ten new area trails.
The new routes lead hikers along marked trails through magnificent landscapes inside Husafell Nature Reserve and feature different levels of difficulty suitable for all experience levels. Travelers can choose from escorted hikes or self-guided exploration using a new Husafell Hiking Map.
Planning a trip to West Iceland’s remote natural wonders will be easier, while also providing an option for daytrips to those in nearby Reykjavik. Located twenty minutes from Langjokull Glacier, Husafell is only 90 minutes from the capital by car.
“Part of what makes Husafell so beautiful is its uncrowded and secluded location” says Hotel Husafell Manager Unnar Bergthorsson. “With our new marked hiking trails and detailed map, visitors can ‘get lost’ in the remote wilderness without actually getting lost. Exploring and discovering on your own is essential to the Icelandic travel experience, especially here in Husafell where you’ll encounter something new at every turn.”
Each of the ten new hiking routes offers a different theme like a Water Trail with active hot springs or the Artist Trail adorned with boulders etched by famed Husafell artist Pall Gudmundsson. The free Husafell Hiking Map is available from reception at Hotel Husafell, at Husafell Visitor Center and via digital download.
The Husafell Luxury Hiking Adventure package includes two nights in a deluxe room including breakfast, Into the Glacier Experience, Lava Cave Tour, Husafell Hiking Map, deluxe lunch to-go for hike, daily breakfast, and access to thermal spa, mountain bike rental, golf club rental, parking, Wi-Fi and taxes. Package price $1,300 based on double occupancy. Valid August 1, 2017 – May 31, 2018. Additional nights and single supplement available: hotelhusafell.com/tilbod/luxury-hiking-adventure
