The Highlands are truly the heart of Iceland. With its uncanny beauty and epic scenery the Highlands offer you an experience unlike any other. Here you can truly become one with nature as the Highlands are untouched and inhibited by men. The vast wilderness - mountains, deserts, canyons, lakes and rivers - demonstrates the powerful forces of fire and ice which have shaped the landscape on this volcanic island over centuries. The geological extremes are unlike any other. Next to dark sands one can find bright glowing green moss, red rocks or boiling water. Amidst all of this beauty there is the trout and the arctic char - peacefully cruising the gin clear streams of the Highlands like it has done from the Ice age. The experience cannot be put into words - it has to be lived.
