Cape Ingolfshofdi is an isolated headland on the coast, halfway between Skaftafell in Vatnajokull National Park and the Jökulsárlón Ice Lagoon. This historical nature reserve is home to thousands of nesting seabirds, like puffins and great skuas. During this tour, visitors will get the chance to check out these incredible animals in their natural habitats.
To get to Ingólfshöfði, we'll cross 6 km of waters, marshes, and sands in a tractor-drawn hay cart. The drive takes about 25 minutes each way, after which we'll spend about 1 & 1/2 hours hiking around the cape. The circle we hike around is 2-3 km long.
In the beginning, we need to walk up a steep sand slope, and then through rocky terrain, but then it gets easier, mostly hiking on flat grassland, and we make many stops along the way.
