Hrafntinnusker in Torfajökull glacier is place you must look at. The English name of this 1128 m high mountain is The Obsidian Skerry. It is situated some distance east of the infamous volcano Hekla. It is accessible by 4wd vehicles from the north and south.

The view from Hrafntinnusker is outstanding. Around the mountain, especially to the west, is a large geothermal area. There are fumaroles, multicolored clay hot springs and water hot springs, some of which are evergreen and in some places under a glacier. Ice caves from there, both big and small. The color of this area is diverse and beautiful. East of Hrafntinnusker is the mountain hut of Ferðafélag Íslands, on "Laugavegur", the hiking trail between Landmannalaugar and Þórsmerkur, built in 1977. It seats about 20 people.
