Hekla Volcano

1 save

Recommendation by Lemi

Enter “The Gateway to Hell” and come back victorious as you conquer its crater peaks. Hekla Volcano got its reputation from a long history of fierce eruptions that devastated the land. From atop the volcano, as far as the eye can see, the ground is dark black and rusty red. The ascend is moderately difficult in parts where the crater is covered in loose soil and ash. You know it’s worth the climb as Hekla’s drastic slopes and violent history have inspired creative minds throughout the years—like writer Herman Melville, poet William Blake, and composer Jon Leifs.
