Stop At: Hjalparfoss Iceland
Hjalparfoss (Waterfall of Help) or, officially, a pair of waterfalls that join where the rivers Fossa and Fjorsa meet and fall from the lava field at an angle of about 45 degrees from each other, from about the same height, and their cascades merge as they fall into a serene pool. The water that flows from Hjalparfoss feeds the second largest hydroelectric dam in the country, just downstream.
Duration: 20 minutes
Stop At: Sigoldufoss, Fjallabaksleið Nyrðri, Iceland
Sigoldufoss Falls, one of the beasts of the landscape of the Icelandic highlands, was transformed during the construction of the hydroelectric power station. For centuries it has been part of the Tungna glacial river. When the Sigalda power plant was built, the glacial water was redirected into a tunnel to turn the turbines. In place of the old river, only a small stream now flows (in comparison with the former powerful glacial river) of beautiful blue-green spring water that feeds the waterfall.
Duration: 20 minutes
Stop At: Landmannalaugar, Landmannalaugar, South Region
Our make destination for a day is Landmannalauagar, the home for Laugavegur and many other notable trails, including the path onto the mighty mountain Brennisteinsalda (Sulphur Wave). Visitors can also traverse the trail up the Blahnjukur (Blue Pick) volcano, whose summit allows for a sweeping view of up to five glaciers on clear days.
There are six marked hiking trails prepared here for tourists. To more or less get acquainted with the lava fields and formations, to see the colored mountains of Landmannalaugar, we recommend following route 1 (4 km. 1,5-2 hours) along the Laugahraun lava field, the mountain Brennisteinsalda, and Graenagil (Green Canyon), or on the route 2 (5,7 km. 2,5-3,5 hours) along with the Blauhnjukkur volcano. And, of course, we plan to relax and bask in the natural hot springs near the camping site.
Duration: 4 hours
Stop At: Volcano Hekla, Iceland
On the way back we shall use a road through the Domadalur valley and get close to Hekla, the most active volcano in Iceland. It has been the inspiration for many myths and legends and has produced more lava fields than you will find anywhere else. Despite erupting as recently as the year 2000, thankfully, the volcano now stays dormant, but regularly monitored by scientists for any volcanic activity.
