New hiking guide book to Iceland

Beitragvon Uwe » Mi 30. Mai 2018, 01:47

Obgleich dies in erster Linie ein deutschsprachiges Islandforum ist, so hatten wir in der Vergangenheit hin und wieder auch Besuch von englischsprachigen Islandfreunden. Aus diesem Grund möchte ich an dieser Stelle meinen neuen englischsprachigen Wanderführer vorstellen:


Dear Iceland enthusiasts,
this is a short message for all English-speaking visitors to the Iceland Forum. You may be interested to discover that there is a new hiking guide to Iceland:

This book presents various hiking areas throughout the volcanic island. It describes 8 trekking tours and more than 40 hikes of varying lengths and difficulty. It shows why Iceland has become one of the most popular hiking destinations in recent years. Hardly any other country in the world offers such a variety of stunning landscapes over such a small area. From the nature reserve Fjallabak in the south, over the lava desert Ódáðahraun with the Askja volcano in the eastern highlands, to the scenic attractions at Mývatn and Jökulsárgljúfur in the north - from the fjords of Hornstrandir in the far northwest, over the plateau of Kjölur and the coloured rhyolite mountains of Kerlingarfjöll in the central highlands, to the alpine-like massif of the Dyrfjöll in the east.

Each of the 12 hiking areas presented here is exceptional with its own unique features. The inner and outer forces of the Earth have shaped landscapes of rugged and often archaic beauty. Iceland is certainly worth several visits and the impressions from your journeys are sure to remain with you.
