Fimmvorduhals

The hiking trail over Fimmvörðuháls is one of the most popular one in Iceland and even more so now when hikers can explore the eruption sites up there. The trail starts at Skógar and takes us from the beatiful Skógarfoss waterfall along the Skógará river.

The distance is about 20 km. with estimated hiking time between 8 - 12 hours. Elevation increase and decrease is 1.000 meters. Be prepared for sudden changes in weather since the trail leads us between two glaciers.
