Hrútfjallstindar Peaks 1875m
Hrútfjallstindar is the name of the impressive peaks dominating the skyline to the north of the Svínafellsjökull Glacier.
The peaks are four in number and the highest stands at 1.875m (6,150ft) high. For many years, the peaks have challenged serious climbers and several climbing routes are already established.
Hikers can make their way up without technical difficulties along the alpine trekking route. The Hrútsfjallstindar Peaks is on par with our popular summit of Hvannadalshnúkur (2110m), the highest mountain in Iceland, but offers more magnificent views.
The hike is demanding and lasts about 14-16 hours. The route offers amazing views of the Öræfajökull massif as well as the Skaftafellsjökull and Svínafellsjökull valley glaciers. No special mountaineering skills are required but the hike is physically demanding.
Please note that a minimum of two participants and a guide meets our standard of ascending and descending the summit in the safest way possible. We recommend that our customers leave a few days free before and after the scheduled departure date in case we need to cancel or make changes to a departure due to lack of participation or weather conditions.
Note: There is a meeting with the guide at IMG's log cabin at 18:00 the night prior to departure. Please contact our office at +354 587 9999 or email@example.com for further information.
