Come and climb one of Iceland's most iconic cliffs on this exciting hiking and climbing tour. This 4-hour hike starts in the historic Herjólfsdalur valley where the first settler in the Westman Islands built his home. His name was Herjólfur, lending the valley its name.

To conquer the Elephant, we start our journey hiking up to Blátindur summit, the second-highest point in the Westman Islands, standing 273 meters above sea level. This part of the hike is quite easy, but when we approach the summit, we need to connect to safety lines to fulfil security measures on the mountain. During a clear day, you can experience an incredible panoramic view of the surrounding islands and the mainland in the north. For example, Mount Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull glacier - both active volcanos.
