    Hvannadalshnjúkur

    Climb your way to the top of Iceland

    The ascent of Iceland's highest peak, Hvannadalshnjúkur, is a once in a lifetime MUST for outdoor enthusiasts!

    The highest peak in Iceland, Hvannadalshnúkur (2110 m/6921 feet) is a challenge all mountain climbers should attempt before leaving the country. Completing this hike gives you some serious bragging rights for the rest of your life!

    The journey up provides breathtaking panoramic views stretching over the rugged outlet glaciers of Vatnajökull glacier and over the vast sandy plains of the glaciated rivers below.

    No special technical skills are required but the hike is physically challenging. From midsummer, conditions may change forcing us to lower the number of guests per guide.

    Why not hike up the highest peak of Iceland and have your skis deliver you down?

    Ever wanted to ski down from the top of Europe's biggest glacier? Alpine ski touring offers you another exciting way to enjoy this highest point of Iceland.

    Hike up with your skis and then let gravity do the rest of the work!

    The slopes are excellent, constantly steep down to about 700 meters where they gradually start leveling out. On the last part of the descent, the skis have to be carried.

    The hike/skiing combo is a great tour for those who have less experience in Alpine touring but are looking to gain more on some exciting routes in the safe company of our guides.
