As you traverse Víknaslóðir Trail, you’ll be greeted by the diverse flora and fauna of the region, including the elusive Arctic fox and numerous bird species that make their home along the coastline and in the valleys.

Each day’s hike offers its own unique landscape, from the stark beauty of deserted inlets to the surprising hues of the mountain ridges painted in shades of red, orange, and green.

The well-marked trails lead you through areas rich in history, where abandoned farms and ruins whisper tales of Iceland’s past, offering a glimpse into the lives of those who once called these remote fjords home.

This trek is an invitation to those ready to step out of their comfort zones. While not technically or physically demanding, the Víknaslóðir Trail’s remote paths appeal to the adventurous at heart.

As you traverse the landscapes, each night’s rest in Iceland’s self-serviced huts promises a true back-to-nature experience. While these huts offer basic cooking and sleeping facilities, hikers have to carry their own food, cooking equipment, and sleeping bags.

We understand that adventure comes with its uncertainties, which is why we’re here to provide a seamless experience. When you embark on the self-guided Víknaslóðir Trail with us, we book your accommodations in the self-serviced huts, ensuring you have a spot to rest.

Additionally, we provide a personalized travel booklet with GPS navigation to guide your steps, which is essential in the Icelandic wilderness. Our 24/7 support and expert guidance are at your disposal, ready to solve any logistical issues and enhance your journey through the East Fjords.

Let the Víknaslóðir Trail be your gateway to an adventure that transcends the ordinary. Step into the wild, embrace the elements and discover the untamed heart of Iceland with us.

A fantastic 3 day self guided Hut to Hut hike around Triglav National Park in Slovenia. We experienced a full range of weather which made it an unforgettable trip. The organisation and back up support with GPS maps etc was excellent. Hut staff were friendly and very happy to give advice and suggestions on the routes and directions. Would recommend.

Tina and her team gave me perfect support on my hut hike through the Triglav National Park in July. In particular, they had to cater to my specific needs twice, which they did for me with no problem. I once had to cancel at short notice before the start of the trip because my father was not feeling well, but then we found a solution and I was able to start the hike. Tina and team first canceled the huts immediately and then reserved them again for me. Even when my condition caused a little tour change again, I immediately had suggestions and these were immediately available in the Trip plans app. I liked this app very much because it was easy to handle and the huttohut-team gave a short overview how the daily tour will be and which highlights – mostly beautiful views – I will see“

Daja Gorišek was the travel agent from here who meticulously organised the trek all the way from Meiringen to Lenk im Simmental. She took care of all the details -- from planning the actual trek route, the detailed GPS map for each stage, to the hotels. The actual experience was entirely consistent with what was promised.

Wegen Schnees musste die Route über den Triglav geändert werden. Unser Führer Jan und zusätzlich auch Luka für die Gipfelbesteigung waren umsichtig, hilfsbereit, zeigten den Weg, nahmen, wo nötig, Stöcke und Gepäck ab und achteten, dass man sicher und gesund zurück kam. Er kannte die Pflanzen. In den Hütten organisierte er das Essen und wir spielten Karten. Das Shuttle zum Start und vom Ziel war auch bestens.

Self-guided

Those who like a good adventure and limitless flexibility should go on a self-guided tour. We prepare the itinerary and book your accommodations while you enjoy the journey without our guide, being fully in charge of all the daily decisions. While you’ll have the full support of our team in case of any emergencies or concerns, a certain level of self-reliance is required.
