Iceland - Southeast Iceland (Chapter)
This is the Southeast Iceland chapter from Lonely Planet’s Iceland guidebook.
The 200km stretch of Ring Road from Kirkjubæjarklaustur to Höfn is truly mind-blowing, transporting you across vast deltas of grey glacial sand, past lost-looking farms, around the toes of craggy mountains, and by glacier tongues and ice-filled lagoons. The only thing you won’t pass is a town.
- don crampons for an easy but exhilarating guided glacier walk
- try to wipe the smile off your face as you roar across the ice cap on a snowmobile tour from Jöklasel
- rise above all others by scaling Iceland’s highest peak, Hvannadalshnúkur
- restaurants & accommodation
