Embark on an immersive exploration of the geologic cracks and crevasses of Iceland's impressive woodlands.
A journey through an area of extreme contrasts and geology. We hike through the typical green “woods” of Iceland, exploring fissures and cavesalong the way. On the way we visit the Grjótagjá caves made famous in the series “Game of Thrones” and then hike up to the top of the biggest tephra craterin Europe “Hverfjall” crater (130m) and descend on the steeper southern side. The route then continues to the “dark castles” Dimmuborgir lava park where we explore lava formations and learn about the trolls that live there and in the mountains in the area.
