Hike with a fantastic view on Mt. Snæfell

If you like hiking you need to hike Mt. Snaefell while in East Iceland. You see forever from the top and hiking is moderate / challenging.

Come for a day on The mountain. Hike the beautiful 1833 meter high Mt. Snæfell, the highest freestanding mountain in Iceland. It is an ancient volcano created rather late during the iceage. On a clear day half of Iceland can be seen from the summit. On this tour we climb the “normal” route on the west side of the mountain which is the most common. Whether you go on a regular day tour or a midnight tour, you´ll experience the power of this mountain.
