Discover the Fimmvorduhals Hike, a majestic Icelandic adventure. Lace up your boots and get ready for an unforgettable journey through Iceland’s breathtaking landscapes starting at the iconic Skogafoss waterfall. Wind between the world-famous Eyjafjallajokull glacier volcano and the mighty Myrdalsjokull glacier. Feel the ancient energy of these icy giants as you hike. Picture yourself surrounded by rugged peaks, their summits touching the sky. The views are nothing short of awe-inspiring. Bring your camera—this is photography gold. Step onto the otherworldly terrain of lava fields. It’s like walking on the surface of a primordial planet. As you trek, you’ll encounter the reason for the name 'Fimmvorduhals', directly translated to 'Five-cairn-ridge'. The cairns are the remnants of Iceland’s past pathfinding system where travelers would build stone piles to find their way across the tricky terrain and we invite you to join the tradition and lay your own stone in the cairn. Witness the raw beauty of the newly formed volcanic craters, Magni and Modi, which emerged during the 2010 Eyjafjallajokull eruption. This is where magic happens. The untouched wilderness, the crisp air, and the sense of adventure—it’s all here in the Icelandic highlands.
