Located in a very remote area, Uxatindar is usually only visited on multiday highland hikes. It is surrounded by dramatic features such as the plunging canyon Hvanngil, the lava fields of Skælingar and the river Skaftá. It is part of Vatnajökull National Park, and from it, visitors can attain great views of Europe's largest glacier.
Uxatindar is on Route F235, meaning it can only be reached in summer in a 4-wheel-drive.
