The walking trail Fimmvörðuháls, which starts at Skogarfoss and ends at Básar. This hike was surprisingly easy, with sunny weather almost all day. However, it is a long hike, and in the area between the glaciers, the weather can change fast. Highly recommended to be well prepared when going this hike, and to check the weather forecast.

    One of the best walks in Iceland, dramatic scenery, volcanic cones from the 2010 eruption, flowers, mountains and lots of waterfalls.
