Hreggnasi

I would recommend this short walk to anyone driving through Iceland’s Snæfellsnes peninsula. The approach road is on gravel, however the condition was good enough to permit us to take the KIA Picanto rental car up to the trailhead (at least in July, 2013). I was greeted with fierce winds on the summit of this first walk of my 2013 trip in Iceland; some things change and some things stay the same – Iceland is nearly always windy however.

Walk up to the ridge from the parking lot and turn right, it's that simple
