Ascent Trip ReportTried to do this one the weekend before but the weather sucked. Oh well.... Ended up having a great time hiking around Skaftafell, Jökullsárlón, and Stokksnes/Höfn - Pictures from Hvannadalshnúkur
I was a few hours drive from home, so I did not want to waste the weekend after having traveled so far. One of the guys I climbed with the previous day was also camping at Skaftafell. Bart from Belgium. We had not been to Ingolfshöfði and you need a vehicle to get there. Since he was traveling around Iceland by public transit, I figured that we should do this since he couldn't do it on his own. You are driven to the actual cliffs by a farmer in a tractor. There are a lot of lundi (puffins) on the cliffs. Pictures from Ingolfshöfði
