Guided Group hike across Hrútsfjallstindar peaks

One of the certified guides in the Icelandic Mountain Guides team invites you to come on a group hike through the four Hrútsfjallstindar peaks, a stunning landscape in the north of the Svínafellsjökull Glacier in Iceland.

Not specified

1 Day

Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




The four Hrútsfjallstindar peaks form a stunning landscape rising north of the glacier Svínafellsjökull in Iceland. The peaks' highest summit reaches 1875 meters and has inspired many climbing routes. But those who do not have technical climbing abilities can also reach the summit. We invite you to hike the peaks along the less technical alpine trekking route on a memorable day trip.

During this day trekking among the Hrútsfjallstindar peaks, you will enjoy breathtaking views of the Öræfajökull massif plus the valley glaciers Skaftafellsjökull and Svínafellsjökull. The trip is comparable to the popular ascent of Hvannadalshnúkur, Iceland's highest mountain. However, this trip actually has better views. Just take a look at some of the photos from the trip! It is a truly majestic scene.

We will ensure that you have an unforgettable experience during this day in the Hrútsfjallstindar peaks. All you have to bring is warm clothing, rain gear, hiking boots, food, and drinks. We'll take care of the rest, making sure you stay safe every step of the way. Ice gear and safety equipment are included in the price of the trek.

The hike lasts from 14 to 16 hours. Though you do not need to have technical mountaineering skills to complete the trek, you do have to have a high level of physical fitness. It is a long and difficult hike. But at the end of the long day you will know how rewarding it is to have climbed the Hrútsfjallstindar peaks**.**

We depart on this hike each Saturday from April 15th to Sep 15 (weather and conditions permitting).

For any questions, more information, or to book your place, please contact us. We'll be waiting!

What people are saying about Icelandic



My tour was cancelled ! Icelandic Mountain replace it with an another



The hike together with group was super nice and fun with lots of laughter. We had all what Iceland could offer - snow, ice, rain, wind, sun, dramatically beautiful nature and delicious food. Our guide Ágúst was super! He has a lot of energy and knowledge. Additionally he is a good people person and very good cook. I enjoyed the 5 day hike in Laugavegur together with group very much and would recommend it to anyone!



The guide was perfect, nice place And nice Experience



These guides love what they do and that shows. Without such an experienced mountain guide it would have been impossible to reach the summit in such dangerous conditions of the glacier.



Everything worked and was very well organized. We are very proud of our guide Ursula and the help guide Gary.
