The Less Beaten Path

The Less Beaten Path are tours to destinations in Iceland where you would see fewer tourists.

These tours are to the West Coast of Iceland, The West Fjords, The North, The East and the Highlands. As Iceland is an island, there is one main road, highway 1, that goes around the island, except the West Fjords. There are roads into and across the highlands, these are gravel roads only accessible in the summer, after the roads thaw out.

The tours are operated in a large comfortable 4x4 SUV with a professional driver/guide. The SUV accommodates up to 7 fully grown passengers. For tours extending several days the SUV is very comfortable for 5 fully grown passengers.
