Fimmvörðuháls Hike | Day Tour | Midgard
Starting at Skógar, the Skógá river is followed (with 20+ waterfalls) and then between Eyjafjallajokull (of 2010 fame) and Myrdalsjokull (with Katla below).
We cross the 2010 volcanic area, its lavas still warm with the two new craters Magni and Móði standing proud.
Descending into beautiful Þórsmörk, here it is like standing atop the world, looking down on unimaginable, glorious creation.
Super jeeps return us from Þórsmörk, rugged driving, crossing unbridged rivers.
