The breath-taking variety of Icelandic mountain scenery makes this one of the most unusual tours we offer at Icelandic Mountain Guides. On the itinerary are three stunning peaks. With each peak, our climbing objectives get more challenging and more rewarding. We start with climbing Vörðuskeggi, the highest peak of the volcanic mountain range Mt. Hengill. Our next objective will be the infamous Eyjafjallajökull Glacier, notorious for its eruption in 2010. Then in Skaftafell National Park, right under the great Vatnajökull glacier, is the home of Hvannadalshnúkur (2110m / 6921 ft). The highest point in the country and renowned for its panoramic views of the South Coast, Hvannadalshnúkur is a perfect grand finale for this exploration of Iceland's peaks.
On top of summiting these majestic mountains we will take you to visit the major attraction sites in the country, the Golden Circle, and the waterfalls of the South Coast.
The ascents of the two glaciers require a good level of fitness but no technical skills are needed. There will be crevasses to deal with and steep inclines over icy ground, which your expert glacier guide will teach you how to navigate. We will provide the participants with necessary climbing equipment; ice axes, harness, rope, and crampons (when needed)
