Recommendation by Lemi
Blackened land, rolling green slopes, and powerful waterfalls dot Fimmvörðuháls (“fim-vur-thu-hawls”), which is situated between two glaciers and a volcano. The Fimmvörðuháls Hiking Trail is an intense trek, but thoroughly rewarding. It can take around 12 hours to comb through all the land, so bring a tent or make a stopover in the mountain hut. During summer you may encounter some wild sheep; but, otherwise, you’ll be alone in the wild lands. Fimmvörðuháls passes Skógáfoss waterfall, Thórsmörk (Thor’s Valley), Eyjafjallajökull (“ay-uh-fyat-luh-yoe-kutl”) and Mýrdalsjökull (“meer-tal-syur-kutl”) glaciers. According to some hikers, you can still feel the warmth under your feet and see the smoke on the lava fields.
