An Adventure Like No Other
Essence of Iceland by Active Adventures is a heart-stopping tour that sees you hiking through two of Iceland's most beautiful national parks. From the impressive geysers of Thingvellir to the world-famous waterfalls of Vatnajökull, you'll spend your days gasping with excitement and your nights soothing your muscles in cosy hotels. If you plan your travel just right, you may even be treated to a performance amongst the stars, the Northern Lights.
Aside from fulfilling your sense of adventure, Iceland is commonly ranked as one of the happiest nations in the world, so prepare to have some of this attitude rub off when you’re out and about exploring with the locals. Offered as a small group tour, this trip (and many others) can be requested as private to ensure you savour every moment in this incredible country.
Trek with a Difference
The Gorilla Trekking Adventure (with Rwanda-Uganda Experience) by New Horizon Tours and Services is the ultimate wildlife adventure with game drives to Akagera National Park just to top it off. From wildebeest and elephants to zebras and gorillas, this safari offers unbeatable wildlife encounters and a trekking experience like no other. Paired with a sundowner cruise on a lake fringed with volcanoes and an insight into one of Rwanda's gruelling past, this private hiking tour offers so much more.
New Horizon Tours and Services give you complete flexibility and freedom when designing your tour. From amazing accommodation upgrades to catering for your specific needs, they're the masters of custom tours in Rwanda and ideal for planning a private gorilla trek.
What to Expect
Will hiking privately cost more?
It depends on the type of tour that you book. We have plenty of private tours and plenty of tours that can be requested to be private, so be sure to double-check which category your tour falls under. Don't worry, if you're unsure our Travel Experts will let you know. It's important to note that prices also vary greatly depending on the destination you choose, and whether or not you choose to upgrade your accommodation.
Will there be a guide?
Private hiking trips often include a guide who knows the trail like the back of their hand and provide a unique insight into the country or region in which you are hiking. Some private tours are partially-guided meaning you may have some free days to explore on your own. Where a guide is not present, such as on an independent adventure, you are often given a map of your route and a 24-hour emergency contact so that your tour still runs as smoothly as possible.
Are there any differences compared to a group trip?
On a group hiking tour, you travel with like-minded people who you've never met. Group sizes can range widely, have a tour leader, and a set itinerary that cannot be changed. You hike to the pace of the group, and the tours have a difficulty grade that cannot be modified.
On private tours, you travel on your own, or with your travel companions, and have more freedom and flexibility on where you stay, what you do, and the comfort of your hike.
How much of my private hiking tour can I customise?
Going private generally means you have a lot more say in your tour. You can upgrade your accommodation, control the pace of your hike, embark on the routes that are more suited to you, and sometimes even select your own dates. If you can't find a private trek that suits you, then we have dedicated Travel Experts at your beck and call to liaise with our hiking tour operators and create the perfect tour for you.
Have You Considered?
Carrying your own luggage can really weigh you down on your walk and make your trip that little bit harder. Some people love the challenge but for others, it's worth checking to see if your tour includes a porter or luggage transfers which can really be a lifesaver.
For your convenience, we have graded all hiking and trekking trips with a difficulty level so that you can choose a tour that is suitable for your fitness level and requirements. Alternatively, we have a number of walking tours that offer the same experience with less preparation required.
Many of our private hiking trips include necessary hiking equipment, however, some tours may require you to bring your own or offer the option to hire them locally. Be sure to check your packing list to ensure you are well prepared for your adventure ahead.
