If you are looking for a great guided hike up the mountain, this local-guided tour is your best option.
The beautiful 1833 meter (6014 ft) high Mt. Snæfell is the highest freestanding mountain in Iceland.
A great 8-9 hours hike. Fantastic view from the summit on a clear day. A relaxing time in geothermal pools with a view towards the „King of Icelandic mountains“, Mt. Snæfell. On a clear day half of Iceland can be seen from the summit!
Mt. Snaefell is an ancient volcano created rather late during the iceage. 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.
After a rewarding hike, we will end our day with a relaxing stop in the natural geothermal pools in Laugarfell on our way back.
