"Climbing the Askja. Surrounded by snow" Top 5 Page for this destination Iceland Favorite Tip by JLBG

Iceland General: 275 reviews and 309 photos


Favorite thing: As much as we climb towards the Askja, snow begins to appear on each sides of the trail, first as a thin layer and later, thicker and thicker. The temperature is well under 0°C, though the weather is not too bad, yet, only some drizzle !

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
