Kerid Crater Lake
On this 6 days trek, you experience some of the best Icelandic nature has to offer glaciers, volcanoes, lava fields, and geothermal colors and hot springs. The track is maintained and your guide will ensure you do not miss the best spots along the way, explain the scenery around you and geological history of Iceland. We start in Landmannalaugar, a geothermal wonderland, and make our way south through the Highlands. On the way, we view fields of obsidian, red and yellow mountains, black sands and sparkling white glaciers. The Laugavegur trail ends in Thorsmörk, a green valley nestled at the foot of the famous glaciers Eyjafjallajökull and Myrdalsjokull. From Thorsmork we hike up to the newest craters at Fimmvörduháls named Magni and Móði, after the sons of Thor, the Norse god of thunder. The area is still warm since the eruption in 2010. Laugavegur and Fimmvörðuháls trek was chosen one of "20 Best In The World" by National Geographic.
Black volcanic sands and green mountains
The second part of the Volcanic trails trek takes us to the south side of the very colorful Torfajökull rhyolite massif where the colors yellow, orange, red and even blue-green, make a refreshing contrast to the black sands and bright green mountains. The trail goes along to Álftavötn lakes, passing Strútur mountain into the black desert Mælifellssandur, dominated by the vast glacier of Mýrdalsjökull. The trek ends at Hvanngil hut, and after a morning walk the next day those who finish here, get on a bus that takes them back to Reykjavík. We bath in the Strútslaug natural pool and enjoy crystal clear waterfalls, cross rivers on a natural stone bridge and enjoy the silence of the highlands. This is by far one of the most dramatic parts of the Fjallabak is where you will feel the vastness of the land as well as the immense solitude, there are but few who venture into this area.
