Very beautiful trail. Diversity of waterfalls, snow, vulcano landscape and forest. Long hike but definately worth it

Awesome, otherworldly trail. We broke this into four nights and camped in tents. Biggest advice, as will become obvious if you’re planning a trip, would be preparing for unpleasant conditions. Though we hiked in late August, it snowed at the top of the mountain pass and temperatures dropped well below freezing. Warm sleeping bags and clothing are an absolute must. The wind was fierce most of the way, too, often reaching 40 mph, and there is no real coverage from the gusts—especially if you’re camping. Brush up on how to pitch tents in wind gusts before you head out! Other thing I’d recommend is bypassing the campsite at Alftavatn and continuing on to Hvanngil. It was a beautiful site and my favorite stop along the way. Most people continue past it, it seemed. Most sites allowed hikers to hang out in sheltered seating areas to escape the elements. This was perfect for warming up, preparing food, and playing card games. Trails were busy and it is good to get moving early to claim a spot if you’re camping!

Unrivalled views, endless waterfalls walking along a canyon for several miles. Very little traffic as well! Such a beautiful hike

Completed 18 September by myself. Start at Skogafoss waterfall. Trail is clearly marked with blue painted stakes. No need to be experienced to complete this one. Spent a lot of time stopping for pictures and finished under 8 hours. trekking poles not necessary but could be handy depending on weather. it was raining the whole time for me. Dress in layers and bring water, snacks, and electrolytes and you will enjoy it.

Great hike. I started at Skógafoss and worked my way up. The waterfalls leading up to the pass are incredible and look more like a fairytale than reality. Make sure to take time to stop and smell the roses (waterfalls). Trail is clearly marked so you should have no problem with that.

Such a beautiful hike. I recommend starting at Skogar because the descent into Thorsmork at the end is unreal. Definitely need a certain fitness level to tackle this in one day, but if weather is good, then no need to be an experienced “hiker” specifically - the markers were clear the whole way when I went today (Sept 6). There are steep climbs and descents, so watch your step and take those at a pace you can handle safely. This hike was one of the best things I’ve ever done - put it on your bucket list if you enjoy hiking and like a challenge!

This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful if not the most beautiful hike I have ever done. The most scenic views throughout the entire hike. Did the trail 3-5 sept with 2 nights in huts. Day 1: 12k, day 2: 28k, day 3: 15k. The trail is well marked and overall of moderate difficulty. If you use this app to check if you are still going the right way you will be fine (also works in flight mode). Weather conditions can change quickly, so come prepared. Water shoes or sandals are a must since you have to cross about 4 rivers, varying from ankle to knee deep. Good luck!

If you want a lot of terrain changes and the most beautiful views one could behold this is the trail for you

An inspiring trail -- in six days we experienced rain, sleet, hail, fog, wind, cold, sun, warmth PLUS saw austere empty landscapes, serene lakes surrounded by craggy mountains, heavy storm clouds moving down valleys, multicolored barren hills, glaciers, ice caves, steam vents and bubbling paint pots, still cooling red-black hills extruded from a volcano, wind swept snow fields, ravines with waterfall after waterfall, and a couple of knife edge paths and truly scary ledges.

Did this in one day well from Skogar .... 25 k trail ran large portions it is an amazing trail run with 1300m elevation gain so not bad over that distance.... well marked trail lots of people arrest part is arranging buses.... the cat spine was a bit of a let down haha we did the wizard hat the day before and that was a real ridge walk lol..... but this is beautiful none the less..... the 10 k from Thorsmork basar is the most amazing views after that kinda boring but you get to end or start depending on your direction at Skogar and the bigs water falls..... Enjoy whichever way you go it’s a beauty

This hike was beyond amazing, and was the highlight of our trip to Iceland. My husband and I completed in about 7 hrs to catch a bus in Porsmork (at 6 pm). We parked at Seljalandsfoss and took a bus to Skógafoss, getting dropped off at 11 am. I would not recommend doing it this way.... we ran the last few miles as we were close to missing our bus. I also wanted to mention that this hike is ranked Advanced for a reason, as a lot of the info I read beforehand made the trail seem easy. While it may not have a ton of elevation change, there are definitely some technical parts.... using chains to descend a steep cliff with no margin for error, crossing icy glaciers (up and down hill), and navigating dried lava fields. While the trail is well marked, the weather can change from sunny to freezing rain and/or fog with no warning. There are options to complete this hike with a guide if you aren't an experienced hiker or if you are concerned about losing your way.

Went up to the bridge and back, a good 17km hike! I think it was way down the most beautiful hike I have ever done. I got lucky with weather but be prepared for gusts of wind and rain of course, even at this first part of the trail. It can get quite slippery so bring your poles if you have :)
