    Road from Vik - Route 1 - Route 214 Parking - Camping Thakgil - Þakgil Start here many walking trials with view on Katla Volcano and Myrdalsjokull Glacier

    We started the hike a bit before Þakgil. Beautiful mountains, but cloudy so we didn't see the glacier.

    Beautiful day hike. If you have fear of heights it might be better to take the same way back from the glacier.

    Tour from Thakgil to Höfðabrekkujökull This tour contains narrow ridges, must have good head for heights! Way back to the starting point: follow the the lilac trail straight down, and cross the river.
