You will have to cross one river today with a painfully cold water. Have sandals or water shoes to do it! Depending on the year it can be knee or even mid-thigh deep. Try crossing at the place where the river goes wider, it will be less deep. For general safety, don’t fasten your backpack in case you fall in the water.

At the end of the hike there is a bridge to cross the river. The trail to reach the bridge is a bit exposed, but not too much. We think it would be much more complicated to do this section the opposite direction (north to south), especially for people with vertigo. We were lucky with our choice 😊

There is no trash disposal at the hut in Emstrur.

The camping has a tent with a few tables to hide from a bad weather while cooking or eating.

There is a nice Markarfljótsgljúfur canyon for a detour from the hut. A nice add on at the end of the day or next morning. (With our bad weather we decided to skip it)
