Itinerary description

Lyngbrekkutindur is a nunatak in Breiðamerkurjökull glacier. This track extends from the cabin owned by the Icelandic Glaciological Society to the peak, via a lower hillock (it was foggy - we initially thought we were heading for the correct summit!). For information on getting to the cabin (for which you need keys) check out the page on Esjufjöll.
The ascent is easy - though when we were there the risk of avalanches was probably non-trivial.
