Geldingafell Mountain Hut: A Trekker's Refuge in East Iceland

This cosy shelter can house up to 16 individuals in sleeping bags; but the hut is tiny, so there is nowhere really to sit except for on the bunks. For convenience, there's an outdoor latrine.

Mt. Geldingafell itself stands as a testament to East Iceland's rugged beauty, with its impressive slopes and panoramic views that attract numerous outdoor enthusiasts annually. Whether for seasoned mountaineers or casual hikers, Geldingafell offers a blend of challenge and serenity in the midst of Iceland's pristine wilderness.
