Off-The-Grid Hiking in West Iceland

We’re proud to be a collaborative partner on the introduction of off-the-grid hiking itineraries in West Iceland. Exploring Iceland’s glaciers, lava caves and remote natural wilderness just got easier with the launch of a new hiking map and marked trails amid the peaceful beauty of Husafell Nature Reserve.



Tucked away in the highlands in West Iceland, Husafell Nature Reserve’s lava-lands, glaciers, hot springs and waterfalls are now more easily accessible to visitors. Iceland’s four-star Hotel Husafell offers new hiking opportunities amid glaciers, ice caves, lava tubes and 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. With the new marked hiking trails and detailed map, visitors can ‘get lost’ in the remote wilderness without actually getting lost. Self-exploration and discovery is essential to the Icelandic travel experience, especially at Husafell where visitors can encounter something new at every turn.

Each of the ten new hiking routes offers a different theme such as the Water Trail with active hot springs or the Artist Trail which is dotted along the way with boulders etched by famed Husafell artist Pall Gudmundsson. The free Husafell Hiking Map is available from reception at Hotel Husafell and at Husafell Visitor Center.
