Welcome to Lónsöræfi


Hiking in this region is challenging and only for experienced hikers (some trails require substantial river crossings). Longer treks range towards the eastern part of Vatnajökull, and northwest to Snæfell. Although Lónsöræfi isn’t part of Vatnajökull National Park, the park’s website (www.vjp.is) has details of hiking trails, and the visitor centres at Skaftafell, Höfn and Skríðuklaustur (in the east, covering the Snæfell region of the national park) can advise on options and sell topo maps, which you will certainly require.
