We will start the journey riding through fertile Jökuldalur Glacier Valley, where we encounter picture-perfect waterfalls on the way to Stuðlagil Canyon, adorned with magnificent basalt columns.
We continue our voyage to the deep ravines of Hafrahvammagljúfur and bathe under a hidden gem, a naturally warm geothermal waterfall in Laugarvalladalur Valley. It is ideal for bathing or showering in the warm waterfall where the stream runs into the valley’s main river.
Finally, on the way back to Egilsstaðir, we stop at Kárahnjúkar, the biggest power plant in Europe, to encounter epic views of the canyon below. While on the way back, look for the legendary monster of Lake Lagarfljót.
