This area between Eyjafjallökull and Mýrdalsjökull in Southern Iceland makes for a stunning hiking route. Experience breath-taking vistas and stunning natural scenery throughout the walk with beautiful landscapes such as snowfields, surrounding glaciers, bizarre rock foundations, magnificent waterfalls and deeply eroded canyons with caves.

Revel in these awesome environmental wonders on the route between Skógar and Þórsmörk which is one of the most popular walks in all of Iceland. Though be warned, it does involved a 22km long hike and 1000m of climbing! However, this route is especially gorgeous with countless lovely waterfalls to gaze at along the walk. What's more you could add the Laugavegur trek to this, turning the trip into a four to six day tour.

Differing weather conditions can be expected so be sure to bring some varying equipment and clothing with you. Discover Fimmvörðuháls and enjoy a new world of unusual and exciting geological surroundings.
