Hiking Iceland: Skaftafell to Kristínartindar

Back in early September my brother and I spent a week hiking in south-east Iceland. Our favorite hike was the loop from the visitors’ center at Skaftafell to Kristínartindar, in Vatnajökull National Park. We didn’t quite make it to Kristínartindar – stopping on the saddle just below the peak – but nonetheless the variety of scenery and views of glaciers from this trail are out of this world! For sure it’s one of the best day hikes in Iceland, or indeed anywhere.
