2. Herdubreid, Iceland
The Herdubreid is a mountain that stands tall at 1682 meters. It is popularly referred to as ‘Queen of Iceland Mountains’. Quite the national gem, this mountain is known for being steep. Quite a few loose rocks are also there which are easy to step on to. While it can be quite challenging to get to the top, it is worth a try. Even if you don’t get to the top, you will be able to enjoy the picturesque surroundings. For a long time, it was believed that Herdubreid was impossible to hike on. The first ever attempt was made only in 1872 by a British hiker. However, the first successful hike wasn’t completed till the year 1908. That is when a German and an Icelander climbed their way to the top.
