Grænihryggur hike with Midgard Adventure
Join us on one of Iceland’s most popular hikes. 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 Landmannalaugar where the Grænihryggur hike starts.
Grænihryggur Hike or Green Ridge is located in Fjallabak nature reserve. The area is characterized by volcanic landscapes, rhyolite mountains and raw wilderness. The green ridge is a natural phenomenon, famous for its intense emerald green color and unique shape. The hike to it is through pristine landscape with a few glacier river crossings.
After the rewarding hike the group can take a dip at the natural hot spring at Landmannalaugar. Followed by a hamburger barbecue and cold beer/soda. 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.
