Um ferðina

Högnhöfði is a magestic mountain in the Golden circle route. Reaching up 1002 m, it is quite the challenge. The name implies the head of a male cat, and you can see the ears of the cat when looking in the west direction , standing on the peak of Högnhöfði. The terrain at Högnhöfði is unique, first hiking through a elevated slope and then lean prairie to the highest peak in the northeast.  We might just hike the small mountain Strokkur to get a better view over Brúarárskörð. Brúarárskörð is a great canyon between Högnhöfði and Rauðafell. The canyon is about 3-4 km long and the vertical drop from the start to the end is about 200 m (660ft) which puts it among the deepest canyons on Iceland. The river Búará, which originates in the canyon, cascades down the steep rocky surface
