Easy hike with just a few steeper sections. We set out along the ridge. This was terrific since we could see the glacier for the whole walk up. Also nice birding in the shrub area. The view at Sjonarnipa was lovely and worth taking some time to enjoy. The walk from there to the Svartifoss waterfall was delightful, and included some boardwalks to protect the wetlands. We absolutely loved this hike.
