Volcano Trails

Celebrating 23 years of Highland tours and expeditions in Iceland

With our 23rd anniversary coming up in 2020, we are committed to providing unforgettable highland tours and experiences in Iceland, for groups and individual travellers.

Over two decades we have had the privilege to explore in detail the beautiful nature of Iceland, taking away valuable lessons on how to operate tours in the Icelandic highlands. We have built a network of hundreds of service providers including expert guides, accommodation and activity providers all over Iceland. We have trained our own staff in the field, set up base camps in the highlands and acquired the largest fleet of Land Rover Defenders in Iceland, all of which enables us to operate tours to all corners of Iceland, all year round. If you wish to experience the best hidden, hard-to-reach places in Iceland, we will get you there!

It is my privilege to welcome you to Iceland.

Environment & trail safety

Have a safe and sustainable journey

Volcano Trails is committed to conducting its business and day to day operations in a sustainable way. We emphasize caution and care for the natural environment and we respect the culture, history and background of the people we engage with through our business. Volcano Trails has worked hard on maintaining long-standing mutually beneficial relationships with its customers, co-workers, suppliers and contractors for over two decades. It is our mission to be in business for decades to come and to do so we feel it is important to respect our land, our business partners, customers, employees and our community. We have signed the official declaration of Responsible Tourism in Iceland and we also encourage our customers to make their own pledge when travelling to Iceland.

We support the Þórsmörk Trail Team in its efforts to maintain the trails of the Þórsmörk Nature Reserve and we support Safetravel.is - Highland Safety Watch for travellers in Iceland. In addition to that, we operate our very own River Rescue Truck in Þórsmörk as a first responding unit for rescue operations in Þórsmörk. You can support our efforts by donating a small fee when you book or by purchasing our branded souvenirs and memorabilia.
