    I drove near this trail's head but didn't knew about the route by then. Thanks for sharing it, I'll keep it in mind for next time I'm in Iceland!

    Btw: would you recommend any climbing gear?

    Many Thanks
    Andy

    The trail head is approximately 5 km from the mountain road Kjalvegur, and the track to get there is not marked on all maps. The hike itself is easy and no climbing gear needed - gps recommended though as the lava fields around Strytur crater are difficult to navigate if it gets dark or foggy. And there is no trail - it is a wilderness hike.
