    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 wea...

    First of all, let me give you an example of why very comprehensive plans are many times worthless in Iceland's highlands: I hiked these trails in August 2018. My first plan was to start hiking as soon as I arrived at La...
