I’m sorry, Tasmania, Swiss Alps, New Zealand and even you, Himalayas. You’ve each just been knocked down one place in my ‘world’s most spectacular hiking destination’ list.
Five days tramping around the ‘Deserted Inlets’ of Iceland’s east coast have shot it to number one in the rankings for scenery, challenging terrain within safe limits and ‘having the place to yourself-ness’.
Thanks, Inga and Jon from Icelandic Mountain guides for the attentive, knowledgeable and caring guiding, and thanks Jo, Rob, Margarida, Helena, Silvia, Alex and Lore for being such great company.
There’ll be more on this blog once I finish writing (and selling!) the full report. Meanwhile, I hope you enjoyed the pics.
