Trail with absolutely stunning views! Along the trail you will pass a couple of waterfalls, but none of the look alike! The trail is well marked by red sticks and parts of it have small wooden bridges over the swamp. Still, your feet likely get wet up to the ankle! Depending on the weather, you might even be able to see the Vatnajökull glacier at the horizon! Be aware though that the weather can change really quickly! During the 2.5 hours it took us, there was sunshine, rain and even a bit of hail. But it was worth it! Also, expect for the sheep, we only met two other people on the trail. Don't worry about being cold after the hike. It begins and ends at a little mountain hut. They offer to use the natural hot tub and their shows for about 1500 krona p.p. We liked it so much, we camped there for a night.
