Travel by foot on one of the most charming and rewarding hikes that the arctic has to offer. Enjoy a relaxed journey through majestic canyons, impressive lava fields, and a birch forest while discovering Glymur Waterfall, the highest waterfall in Iceland.
An easy to moderate, beautiful hike, to the highest waterfall of Iceland.
We pick you up at your accommodation in Reykjavik and continue towards Hvalfjördur (e.Whale Fjord) where you will be rewarded with unforgettable landscapes and unique panoramic views. We will head to Botnsdalur, a valley which hides a real gem of nature and the 198 m. (0.12 mi) high Glymur Waterfall. Once we reach the end of the road we put our hiking shoes on, grab a camera and set on 2.3 hour hike through canyons, a birch forest, and lava fields. We will be crossing a small cave where on the other side you will see: a glimpse of paradise, a clear and joyous stream running among moss and tall grass. Enjoy a breath of fresh air as you will be spending your day in the outdoors hiking in beautiful surroundings.
We will be back to Reykjavik in the early afternoon.
