The South of Iceland enjoys the greatest numbers of foreign visitors in Iceland and for good reason. In the South, everything that makes Iceland interesting to visit can be found the year around. There is creative art, heritage, farm to table produce and endless possibilities to enjoy the outdoor life. The Hrífunes Nature Park cabins are right in the center of South Iceland and therefore an ideal base camp for adventurous travelers who want to explore what the South has to offer. The cabins are surrounded exciting hiking trails leading to popular destinations such as Landmannalaugar, Fjallabak, Eldgjá and Langisjór. Close by are Jökulsárlón and the famed Fjaðrárgljúfur gorge.
Special attractions and experiences greet the hiker on trails through the countryside. Showering under a waterfall, examining artificial craters both inside and out, walking on a beach with the mighty Atlantic at your feet and angling for freshwater fish in the clear streams that bubble out from under the lava – there is something for all age groups in the vicinity of Hrífunes Nature Park, with walking paths which meet all levels of ability. Many of Iceland’s birds nest in the area, and occasionally travelers will come across wild foxes.
