Uxatindar is a mountain peak in the Southern Highlands which stands 864 meters above sea level. It is green with moss throughout summer and is surrounded by rivers, black sand deserts, grassland and other mountains.

Located in a remote area, Uxatindar is usually only visited on multiday highland hikes. It is surrounded by dramatic features such as the plunging canyon Hvanngil, the lava fields of Skælingar and the river Skaftá. It is part of Vatnajökull National Park, and from it, visitors can attain great views of Europe’s largest glacier Vatnajökull.
