The Skaftafell region of Vatnajokull National Park is a lush oasis where you can hike for days on gorgeous trails through forests, waterfalls, black sands, mountains, glaciers with Iceland’s highest peak, Hvannadalshnjukur, reaching 2,118 meters (6,950 ft), providing a stunning backdrop.

A short walk into the park offers a breath taking view of Svartifoss, (Black Falls) which is bordered on both sides by tall black basalt columns, resembling the pipes of a giant organ.
