This trek from KE Adventure offers a simply breathtaking variety of Icelandic mountain scenery making this one of the most unusual climbing expeditions available. From the exuberant city of Reykjavik, our adventure begins with the easy ascent of Vorduskeggi Peak (805m) overlooking Lake Thingvellir. On this first day we also get the chance to visit the geothermal area at Geysir and to see the mighty Gullfoss waterfall. The explosive volcano, Hekla, is our next climbing goal and involves a testing 1000 metre climb, across ash and snow, to reach its fissured, steaming summit. After Hekla, we then make the spectacular crossing of the wildly volcanic highland region of Iceland, the Fjallabak. A stop-off at the famous Landmannalaugar hot pools is obligatory. Arriving at Skaftafell, we have 2 days during which our principal objective is to make the ascent of Hvannadalshnukur (2119m) the highest mountain in Iceland.
