Let's go for a 3-4 hours hike on 340 metres high Mt Helgafell, next door to Reykjavik. Mt Helgafell is located in the middle of a lava field so the hike might seem like hiking in a moon-like landscape. At the top of Mt Helgafell you could have a picknick if you like.
We'll be walking for 10-15 minutes across a flat lava field to the mountain. At the roots of the mountain we'll be hiking up a steep hill. Sometimes you might have to do some climbing. On the way up the mountain we'll take frequent breaks. You need to wear sturdy hiking boots. You can borrow hiking poles at no extra cost if you let us know beforehand. The mountain is one of the most popular hiking mountains in Reykjavik. The hike would be classified as easy by most hikers, especially if you are an experienced hiker, but of course that depends on what you consider hard or easy. The hike to the top of Mt Helgafell takes up to 1-2 hours depending on how slowly or fast we go. The pace is up to you.
