On Trend: Solo Travel Adventure

Introducing ꞌHiking and Horses’ Iceland’s first package meeting the needs of the new solo travel trend sweeping the globe. Iceland Cool collaborates with 4-star Hotel Husafell to welcome independent travelers to enjoy horseback riding and nature hiking on a flexible 4-day adventure package in solo-friendly Iceland.


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

Amidst 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 travellers 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.


Tailor-made for solo wanderers and discounted 30% off regular rates, the package includes:

  • 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
  • Visit to family-run Sturlureykir Horse Farm in Reykholt for an introduction to the Icelandic horse and brief riding lesson
