Skeggi – top of a Volcano

  • This is a beautiful hiking tour with a great 360° view from the highest peak of the Hengill volcanic area. On our way to the top we will ascend about 500 meters through rocky volcanic environment until we reach the highest top of the Mt. Hengill, 805 meters above sea level. From the top you will see spectacular landscape including the Langjökull glacier, Iceland´s capital Reykjavík and the national park, Thingvellir, where the tectonic plates of Europe and America meet. On our way down we will travel on flatter tracks through a beautiful valley of grass, moss, gravel and hot springs, perhaps take a footbath and finish our lunch.

    • The hike is physically challenging  and only suitable for physically fit hikers who are not afraid of heights.
