The hike to Bláhnúkur in good weather is a very recommendable tour in a dreamlike landscape.
Climbing Bláhnúkur offers many fantastic views of the colourful rhyolite mountains of the Fjallabak area. In the distance you can also see the three large glacier caps Vatnajökull, Hofsjökull and Langjökull.
The path is easy to recognize as a trail but partly exposed.
In the midsummer nights climb Bláhnúkur in the late evening. Then you are alone on the summit and experience a never ending sunset.
