TheHiking Club Toppfarar hiking the highest peak of Iceland in 2.110 m. Great trip on a splendid day with no wind and the sun shining on the way up and snowing on the way down. Total of 20 participants plus three guides from Glacier Guides hiked 26 km in 12:25 – 13:04 hrs. with ascendance of 2.030 m. In this video we have hiked the Mt Sandfell which is the first part of the hike and the group is resting in about 700 m height in a crispy still weather and great view… the crazy club members already nicknaming the guides which are realizing what kind of a high spirited group they are guiding 😉

Askja (Herðubreið 3) – hiking around Askja – 080809

Toppfarar on a four day trip to the highlands in northeast of Iceland to hike the “queen of Icelandic mountains” Herðubreið. Here hiking around Lake Askja which is a big crater at about 220 m deep. This was a total of 24,9 km long walk up to 1.530 m for over 10 hours with a bath in Lake Víti and a lot of stroll on the way. Guess it would take 8 hours minimum for a good hiker to hike the whole way. This day the weather was perfect and the no way to describe the view tha whole way and the feelings one had while hiking through all the peaks and hills. One of the best hikes ever in my life.
