Hiking Hvannadalshnúkur is an Iceland favorite, and Iceland's highest hike at 2110 m - (6900 feet).
The ascent of the highest peak in Iceland, Hvannadalshnúkur (2110 m / 6900 feet) is a once-in-a-lifetime must.
The peak is located in the north-western rim of the Öræfajökull volcano and promises an unforgettable hike with breathtaking panoramic views stretching over the rugged outlet glaciers of Vatnajökull glacier or over the vast sandy plains of the glaciated rivers that drain off that great glacier.
No special technical skills are required, however the hike is both physically and mentally challenging: Please note our low client-per-guide ratio (Usually 8 pers.per guide, but due to conditions it is currently 6 pers. per guide)
