Hike Skardshyrna with accommodation at hotel Laxarbakki



When driving to the north of Iceland you see a lot of beautiful glacier-shaped mountains along the way. 

We offer a hike to one of those peaks, Skardshyrna. The hike takes you through a valley, ending on the peak of Skardshyrna with the view on the picture seen above.  

​We begin our hike roughly at 100m above sea level and then progress upwards to the summit of Skardahyrna at 923 m. 

The total distance covered is about 11 km. After the hike, there is a hot tub to soak into at Laxarbakki and then have dinner cooked by master chefs. 

Highly recommended by the owner of Valhalla!
