Fimmvörðuháls hike with Midgard Adventure
Join us on the incredibly beautiful Fimmvörðuháls hike. The night before the hike you will stay at Midgard Base Camp. During the evening the guide will gather the group for a briefing. The next day after breakfast the group is driven to Skógar waterfall where the stunning Fimmvörðuháls hike starts.
The Skógá river is followed (with 20+ waterfalls) and then we hike between Eyjafjallajokull Glacier (of 2010 fame) and Myrdalsjokull Glacier (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 the beautiful Þórsmörk Nature Reserve, here it is like standing atop the world, looking down on an unimaginable, glorious creation.
A hamburger barbecue and cold beer/soda will await the group in Þórsmörk. The group is then driven back to Midgard Base Camp where you can relax tired muscles in the rooftop hot tub and then continue celebrating at the bar. When ready you enjoy another good night’s sleep at Midgard Base Camp.
