Nautastígur mountaineering

ICELAND’S MOST STUNNING SIGHT

Nautastígur

Nautastigur is a mountaineering trekking tour with Glacier Adventure
This is a day trip in the mountains around Hali.  This is a perfect day for your group to spend outside in the mountains and get a feel-good guidance through the magical landscape Iceland has to offer.  And at the same time get to know the local and almost forgotten history about the bulls that were kept in the valley of Hvannadalur in the past.

This trekking rout has a lot of variety of landscape and includes an amazing drive through Kálfafellsdalur.  Crossing glacier rivers and driving on rough paths.

We can expect to see some wild life on our journey, such as reindeer, rock ptarmigan and sheep’s.

This mountain trekking fit´s most hiking groups.  It is around 12 km, total elevation gain 650 m and usually done in 6 – 8 hours.

After the tour your group will have access to the barn where you can BBQ and have a nice group gathering after the tour.  If the group would like we can arrange food for the night or yoga the day after.

There are many option for accommodation around Glacier Adventure Mountain- and Glacier center, such as www.skyrhusid.is and www.hali.is
