Hiking is a perfect activity to do while in Iceland. Take your time to explore the icelandic nature instaid off just driving by in a hurry. On our tours we explore the diffrent waterfalls and canyons under Eyjafjallajökull in private with no other tourists around. In good condition you will also be able to get a good veiw of the glacier as well as the westman islands.

You meet with your guide at the arranged time for the hike at the reception in Skálakot hotel. There are many available tracks starting directly from the hotel and the guide will suggest the most appropriate one depending on how long time you have and how difficult trails you wish to explore. Most tours will start uphill and end downhill.
