Hiking off the beaten path in Iceland with Ryder-Walker Alpine Adventures.

That’s a wrap! Our Iceland hiking tour wrapped up yesterday. First impressions: Our trip leader Barbara ‘Babsi’ Glanznig says, “Wow! We had picture perfect weather, endless opportunities to see wildlife really close and happy guests!”

Some of her favorite wildlife encounters were the puffins, whales and dinner next to an Arctic Fox!

We don’t have a picture of the fox, but we do have a shot of Babsi snacking on some dried fish.

Seriously. This trip had some great hiking.

But the reward was worth it. Natural hot springs abound in Iceland, so why not?

Of course the scenery was spectacular.
