    Whenever I see anything about Iceland, there are the waterfalls. I love that you actually for once showed the beautiful rivers as well! What food to you get in those Volcano Huts?

    I love the idea of visiting somewhere that is hard to get to 🙂 Makes it seem like such a special and rewarding experience! This place looks just like that. Beautiful photos, great tips on how to get there, helpful reviews of the different trails. Thank you!

    My husband loves hiking, and these views show some amazing sights! I know he would love it. I’m a newbie hiker, so we couldn’t go together on the longer hikes, but the shorter ones we could manage. I wouldn’t mind trying on of the super jeep tours to get into the area — that sounds like fun, although probably a bit of a rough ride. Must add this to the list if Iceland is in the cards for us next year. Thanks for sharing!

    How beautiful and so peaceful. Your shots of Thórsmörk are incredible. Iceland has been on my list for years and I really need to get there soon. This is yet another reason to visit soon 🙂

    Oh my gosh! I missed this on my travels to Iceland, but when I go back (not in winter) I want make this trek for sure. My husband and I are avid hikers, so this will be a perfect stop for the two of us! That canyon is stunning!

    What a fantastic looking hike. One of Iceland´s selling points is its incredible array of landscapes that seem to go on forever. I love a challenge and these hikes look like the perfect way to get to know this fascinating country.

    Thanks for the overview of short hikes – we did the Laugavegur, but obviously that’s not a short one! A four day trek but one I definitely recommend. If I may add something for hikers to Iceland to consider, please don’t make cairns (those carefully arranged piles of stones you see along the tracks). Ancient cairns are a natural part of the cultural landscape but it’s become an increasing problem that tourists are deciding to stack rocks to build their own.

    These “tourist cairns” are popping up, and it is destroying the natural environment, as well as misdirecting hikers as they’re also used as trail markers 🙂

    My friend found few days ago tickets to Iceland, very chep one. We almost decided to buy them, cause Iceland is one of the places I just have to visit, but we realized that there will be no green grass, not even snow, just mud at this time (November) I have to wait some more!
