Reykjavík- Landmannalaugar- Hrafntinnusker
The adventure begins with a morning bus transfer from Reykjavik to Landmannalaugar. A journey to the southeast for about 4 hours offers views of the most active volcano of Hekla. Upon arrival in Landmannalaugar, we will have the opportunity to swim in one of Iceland’s most beautiful natural swimming pools. Next, let’s go after an undemanding tour to the first camp. This leads through a slight climb around the Stórihver fairy tales and, in combination with the rainbow colored mountains, creates an unusual scenic experience. Photo lovers will definitely find their way. After crossing the rainbow mountains we reach the unexpectedly open scree area of the first Hrafntinnusker camp, one of the most remote on the island.
Hike length: 12 km, Duration: 4-5 h, Elevation climb: 470 m
After breakfast, continue along the Reykjafjoll Mountain, followed by a descent to Jokultungur. The rocks in this area have a yellow-red color due to the strong geothermal activity. From the top of Jokultungur we will be able to see the vast plan of Fjallback and Lake Alftavatn, which will be our next night. The first ford is waiting for our campsite.
Hike length: 12 km, Duration: 4-5 h, Elevation climb: 490m.
Álftavatn- Lake Emstrur
We start the day with a refreshing and even more ford. It is also the beginning of the Mælifellssandur Black Desert. During this tour we will go around the Hattafell volcano with a flat top. In the distance, the majestic volcanic glaciers Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull begin to open. Before entering the Botnar campsite, we turn to a view of the almost 200m deep canyon formed by the glacier river Markarfljót. Our campsite is surprisingly in the literally green Botnar oasis.
