  • A world at the end of the world. Wild and enchanting
  • This is the most majestic place that I've been too. Remote, isolated, with very few people (although the ones you meet are quite helpful), and no infrastructure. If you have an emergency here,, you will be on your own, so you should be self-sufficient. Be prepared for all types of weather. One moment it may be sunny and warm to the point where you feel the need to undress. The next moment it will be snowing with high winds at 35 km/h. Locals tend to underestimate hiking times. If an Icelander says that a hike will take 2h, give yourself 3 - 3.5 hours. There IS limited cell phone coverage, although it's mostly on the top of mountains. Vodafone has a nice map of spots where you can get a signal.
