A sightseeing expedition that takes us over the plains north of the mountain range. The mission is to reach the towering Lodmundur summit in all its magnificent glory.

We will be heading east with Hofsjökull Glacier on our left and Kerlingarfjöll mountain range on our right. In front of us the tower of Loðmundur grows bigger by each step on our trusted skis.

We will set up camp below Lodmundur and enjoy our lunch with the robust appetite that only outdoor activities bring. After lunch break we head back along a different and a bit more challenging route towards the Highland Base, skiing along Asgarðsfjall, the mountain of the gods.

This tour adapts to the current snow and ice situation.
