I signed up to do the walk on my own, but I never felt alone at any stage during our stay in Iceland. All the Walk the Walk Team were so welcoming, friendly and caring. Nothing was ever too much trouble and you always had a smile and kind word for us. Anita
Another amazing adventure, shared with so many wonderful people. The sights we have seen from the top of a volcano to whale watching and seeing a blue whale ... If you are tempted, I say do it! I have - 5 times now!!! Andy
Iceland has always been on my ‘bucket list’ and it was a trip of a lifetime which met and far exceeded all of my expectations. Not only did I get to spend it with 60 similarly-minded yet perfect strangers (which I loved) – the week was jam-packed full of amazing activities in a country where you will have more than usual of your fair share of ‘wonders of the world’.
