Snæfell-Lónsöræfi trail: Trekking  in the Vatnajökul National Park This is a  popular 3 - 7 day trek across magnificent landscape, glaciers, volcanos and rivers with interesting flora and great views in the Vatnajökull National park. The trail begins by the beautiful dormant volcano Snæfell that reigns at 1833 m. over the eastern Highlands, the home of the great Reindeer herds. It is a easy climb for a perfect day and from the top you ´have some of Icelands best view.

From the Snæfell hut you pass Þjófahnjúkar and then the trail takes us across the "Eyjabakkajökull" glacier, passed Eyjabakkar a haven for pink-footed goose and reindeer, along to the hut in "Geldingafell". 
The  next destination is "Kollumúlavatn", en-route you may come across semi-precious stonesr and other wonders.  Worthwhile detour is the Víðidalur valley.

The trail continues to "Tröllakrókar", palagonite cliff formations carved by wind and water. A must for those interested in trolls and elementary beings. Down steep slopes  of "Leiðartungur", entring  an arctic birch forest to the hut "Múlaskáli" in the Lónsöræfi wilderness and their enchanting nature, with countless possibilities of short, interesting hikes. Usually a pickup is arranged at the ridge "Illikambur" or you can hike further south to Hoffell.
