    Up the canyon to the view point on Hangandifoss waterfall. Hiked mid May with a baby in the carrier. Above this point the trail was covered in snow so we haven't continued further.

    Easy and fun hike. Some steep portions but nothing scary. Stunning views. This is only one way and not all the way to the top.

    Must be done clockwise. Both for better views and easier track. If you love trail running the descent from the glacier view back to the parking is 100% fun guaranteed

    Preciosa ruta per la glacera de Skaftafelljokul. Molt recomanable fer-la en aquest sentit, al arribar al mirador de la glacera Sjonamipa no hi havia boira al ser d'hora. No sé si sempre serà així o és qüestió d'esperar. ...

    Espectacular circular per Skaftafell. Moderat perquè hi havia llocs glaçats amb risc de relliscar...sinó seria facil
