  • A guided tour of important places

Many claim that from the summit of Snækollur (Snowtop mountain) you can, on a clear day, see both the south and north coast of Iceland. Snækollur is the the highest peak in Kerlingafjöll mountains and we can vouch, ocean-view or not, that the scenery is breathtaking. 

Hike with a knowledgeable guide up a steep but relatively short ascent and then along the rocky mountain ridge trail to the top. There it is time to take a well deserved snack break while enjoying the amazing views. If conditions allow, the return hike will take us over a small glaciated snowfield, straight down to where we started.

What to bring

Warm clothes such as wool, fleece/soft-shell, hardshell and a puffy jacket are mandatory on all tours. On a good summer day it is possible to strip down to a thin shirt and stuff the rest in a small backpack, but usually only for a short while! The Icelandic weather is famously volatile and warm layers and rain gear should always be at hand. 

Good and sturdy hiking boots or trail shoes are a must. On most tours we will encounter the legendary multicoloured mud of Kerlingarfjöll that tends to stick to the bottom of shoes like glue! Pair your boots with warm and soft hiking socks and you're golden.

Don't forget gloves. Yes, also in the summertime :) Plus something to cover your neck and head with. Preferably that something is made out of wool, which means it doesn't loose it's insulation qualities if wet. 

Also bring sunglasses and hiking poles, if you've got them.

Last, but not least. Fill your water bottle with the pure Icelandic tap water and slip it into your backpack along with some energy bars / snacks. If the tour lasts more than 3 hrs. you should also pack a light lunch, such as a sandwich.
