Mount Hekla – The Volcano

March 2, 2018 By Travel Comments Off

Mount Hekla

Mount Hekla is approximately 50 km from the hotel and it is among the most active volcanos in Iceland with more than 20 eruptions since 874.

Hekla is a popular destination for hikers. The trail leads most of the way to the summit, and takes about 3 to 4 hours to walk. Skiing, around the rim of the crater, is also possible in the spring time. There you can also go mountaineering in the summer. Travelers do need to be aware though, that the volcano can erupt without a warning, so you enter the area at your own  risk.

Located in the area is Hekla Center, providing tourists with information and advice about Hekla and its surroundings, as well as housing an exhibition on Mount Hekla and organizing artistic events and programs.
