Iceland - The Highlands (Chapter)
This is the Highlands chapter from Lonely Planet’s Iceland guidebook.
Gazing across the desolate expanses of the interior highlands, you could imagine yourself in the Australian outback, or, as many have noted, on the moon. Although some travellers are disappointed by the interior’s ultra-bleakness, others are humbled by the sight of nature in its rawest form.
- pity the melancholy ghost and outlaws on Iceland’s longest, loneliest north-south track, the Sprengisandur
- spice up the endless vistas of desolation with stops at hot springs and climbable crags along the notorious Kjölur route
- don hiking boots to investigate the new, improved trails around the majestic massif Kerlin-garfjöll
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Kjölur Route (Kjalvegur), Sprengisandur Route, Öskju-leið (Askja Route), and Kverkfjöll Route.
