Iceland, Highest Peak Trek

Öræfajökull is an ice-covered volcano in south-east Iceland. It’s the largest active volcano in the country and on its north-western rim is Hvannadalshnúkur, the highest peak in Iceland. Geographically Öræfajökull is considered part of the Vatnajökull glacier, which is within the bounds of Skaftafell National Park.

The ascent is a challenge, but the rewards bring you breathtaking views across Vatnajökull and southeast Iceland, and the incredible experience of hiking through a glacial wilderness. An incredible glacial experience and challenge!

Best time of year: May – September

Grade: Very tough

Number of days: 5
