Frequently asked questions

What equipment do I need for mountain hiking?

Warm, waterproof and windproof clothing, and sturdy hiking boots that support the ankle. On snowy or icy peaks, you will need crampons, but your tour operators will provide them when they are needed.

Why is Iceland so mountainous?

Iceland is divided by the Mid-Atlantic Ridge where the Eurasian and North-American tectonic plates drift apart. This results in extreme volcanic activity that perpetually creates both the country and its mountains.

Where are the oldest mountains in Iceland?

The oldest mountains in Iceland are in the Westfjords; they are approximately 16 million years old.

Are all the mountains in Iceland volcanic?

All mountains in Iceland were originally created by volcanic activity, but many old volcanoes are now dormant or cold. None of the mountains in the Westfjords, for example, are volcanically active anymore.

Can you go rock climbing on Iceland’s mountains?

Experienced climbers can ascend some of Iceland’s rocky mountains, such as Mt. Kirkjufell.
