in de buurt Skaftafell, IS.06 (Ísland)
Although dominated by the many glacial peaks in Öræfajökull to the east, Kristínartindar ("Christine's Peaks") are respectable mountains in their own right - the higher of them rises to 1130 metres AMSL. By picking the appropriate paths I made this hike a circuit of the Skaftafellsheiði area, enjoying views towards the east on the way up - and to the west on my way back. I also took the opportunity to wash my feet in the river below Svartifoss - about as nice a place for a break as can be found anywhere!
I would classify the hike as "easy" except that those afraid of heights might feel a bit uncomfortable on the last stretch.
