Cape Ingolfshofdi is an isolated headland on the coast half way between Skaftafell in Vatnajokull National Park and Jökulsárlón ice lagoon. The cape is named after the first settler of Iceland, Ingolfur Arnarson, who spent his first winter in Iceland there in the year 874 AD.

To get to Ingólfshöfði we cross 6 km of waters, marshes and sands in a tractor-drawn hay cart. The drive takes about 25 - 30 minutes each way, so we spend about 2 hour hiking around the cape. The circle we hike around the nature reserve is 3 km long. In the beginning we need to walk up a steep sand slope, and then through rocky terrain, but then it gets more easy, mostly hiking on flat grass land and we make many stops along the way. In the end of the trip we hike down th the beach, either on the west side or the east side of the cape depending on the weather.
