    OK, so Innsta-Jarlhetta doesn't feature in the Book (its cousin Stóra-Jarlhetta does) but this is a beautiful mountain which I have long dreamt of climbing. We tried last spring (on skis from Bláfellsháls) but found the ...

    Bláfell is a large lump of rock located just east of the Kjölur route across the Icelandic highlands. The view from the summit must be spectacular - regrettably there was no visibity when I was there in late October 2005...

    On August 13th 2006, I led a tour group to one of my favourite little peaks, Klakkur. Since transportation was by bus we had to stick to the "easy" 4x4 track rather than approach the peak more closely - this resulted in ...

    It was on Easter Monday 2006 that we set course fro Skriðufell in two 4x4s. Getting to where we intended to start skiing turned out to be quite hard - we cooked the automatic transmission of Tommi's Ford - he had to keep...

    Located on the NW flank of the Langjökull icecap, Hafrafell was the destination of a spring (late March) skitrip in 2005. Beaitful weather, if a little cold, and good skiing (though perhaps a tad too fast for some!). Cli...
