Loðmundur is the towering iconic north summit of Kerlingarfjöll mountain range, pyramidal in shape and a mountain all peak baggers should have on their list.
The hike itself is a challenging journey over a glacier and along high mountain ridges. Furthermore, to reach the top itself one must take on a steep but short scramble with the assistance of a rope.
Our professional guides will lead the way and secure the route with ropes and anchors.
This is not a hike for the faint of heart but the reward is a euphoric feeling of triumph and out of this world views.
This tour adapts to the current snow and ice conditions.
What to bring
