Island escapes

If you are thinking about a trekking adventure somewhere mountainous and wild, a small island may not be the first thing that springs to mind. But when you move inland away from beach resorts and coastal towns you often find a surprising hinterland of deep valleys, high peaks and endless views. We have put together a collection of island adventures designed to surprise and delight.

From incredible geothermal activity in Iceland to kayaking alongside whales in Greenland, there are many amazing things to be discovered on the world's islands, and they often go overlooked.

Top 3 destinations

In Indonesia, you can climb to lofty summits or fly down them on a mountain bike. Iceland is well known for its vast open spaces, glaciers and geothermal activity but have you ever considered a trip to the lesser known eastern fjords? For a true wilderness experience, have a look at east Greenland where you can spot whales surfacing among icebergs and trek to the beautiful Valley of Flowers.
