Hiking in Iceland is fun

Whether you prefer short walks, easy hikes or long, demanding treks, Iceland is the place to be. It is a landscape full of surprises: here you can see boiling springs and glaciers side by side, colourful mountains, sharp peaked ridges, moss covered lava fields, black sands, fresh lavas, broad glacier outlets, and so much more.

Iceland is a mountaineering playground

Iceland has great potential for mountain trekking, ski touring, mountain skiing and ice climbing. Trekking Hvannadalshnúkur (2119 m / 6952 ft), the highest peak in Iceland, is by no means easy as the trek sets out just above sea level. Ski touring on Vatnajökull, the biggest ice cap in Europe, is another thing you don't easily forget.
