A short ascent to a great viewpoint atop a mountain named after the mythological home of the ancient nordic gods, such as Thor, Odin, and Loki.

Highland Base is nestled at the roots of Asgardsfjall which literally means the mountain of Asgard. According to norse mythology Asgard was the home of the gods and on this family friendly hike to the summit you will learn about the gods and the relationship of Icelanders to the old Nordic religion.

The hike carries an enormous payoff in views over the centre of the Icelandic highlands. You can see the ancient north to south trail of the first inhabitants of Iceland exactly as it was when riders crossed the treacherous landscape bearing tidings from region to region.
