    Hi

    I am going to Iceland next year, probably for 6 - 8 weeks and hope to do a long trek into the interior, ice climbing and sea kayaking.

    I have my lonely planet guide and I have looked at various web sites that offer mountain guiding, glacier walking and sea kayaking, but would really like to talk with others who have been there and can offer relevant advice.

    Look forward to hearing from you all.

    Hi, you might find this site interesting as it details a south-north backpacking crossing of the island with GPS data and even a video of the whole thing.

    Hi Neil

    Thank you for that link. That site will be very useful to me. Funny thing I am planning a very similar trek to Michel Blomgren but taking in one of the glaciers and another couple of features, so his route is really intersting for me, otherwise it is virtually the same route I picked out. The start and finish are the same.

    I wonder if anyone on the forum has trekked or climbed in Iceland?
