Located on the north-western rim of the Öræfajökull volcano, Hvannadalshnukur is the highest peak in Iceland (2100 meters). Join us on this group hiking quest to reach its summit!
This exciting hike to the top of Hvannadalshnukur consists of a full day (about 15 hours) trek. You’ll enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the Vatnajökull glacier and vast sandy plains.
Hiking this peak is a once in a lifetime experience and we will be happy to guide you on this challenging experience. You won’t need any technical climbing skills, although you do need to be in very good physical condition!
Please note that this group expedition can only be done from April to mid-July, as later in the season the last part becomes a steep maze of crevasses that we are not able to cross with an acceptable margin of safety. Departure days are Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Also take into account that we can only take from 2 to 6 people on this ascent.
Apart from the guiding fee, the price includes the ice gear and safety equipment. You only have to bring warm clothing, rain gear, hiking boots, lunch and drinks. And lots of energy!
So send us a request and lets organize a private tour to the summit of Hvannadalshnukur. We promise an amazing experience you will never forget!
