Fjallabak hike with Midgard Adventure
Join us on a hike deep in the Icelandic highlands, in Fjallabak nature reserve. Expect rhyolite and obsidian color palette, volcanic landscape and geothermal activity. 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 into Fjallabak.
We will decide on the exact route depending on conditions. Possible routes include: Rauðubotnar, Strútur, the area close to Mt. Mælifell, Mt. Hattfell, Hólmsárlón, Hólaskjól and Álftavatnakrókur.
A hamburger barbecue and cold beer/soda will await the group after the hike. 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.
