On this super jeep day tour you will discover the less known area of The Fjallabak Nature Reserve.
From the Fljótshlíd valley, the route rises, soon entering remote wilderness. Passing Einhyrningur “finger peak”, Markafljótsgljúfur’s technicolor canyon is magnificent. Waterfalls abound here and the canyon’s stratified lava/ash layer walls are remarkably striking.
Beautifully sculpted landscapes, vivid green with moss carpeting, lead through Þverárbotnar. Unbridged, grey, glacial meltwater rivers, from Myrdalsjökull, are crossed before entering Mælifellssandur’s black ash deserts.
Laufafell offers more rugged encounters, its orange rhyolite rocks a dramatic contrast.
