Spectacular hiking trails in Reykjavík area

  • Móskarðshjúkar

    Located only 26km from Reykjavík, this mountain is an outdoor paradise for people who live or stay in Reykjavík. In summer it's ideal for hiking and mountain biking but it is also popular with skiers in winter. The picturesque peak is often visible from the distance - even from Reykjavík. Its bright, yellow color - thanks to the ryolite, the same volcanic rock that makes the Landmannalaugar area so famous - is very eye-catching. The hike is quite challenging since the trail is pretty steep, especially around the peak. But the scenery is just breathtaking! This mountain is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen!
