We begin with a drive to admire the magnificent man-made wonder of Kárahnúkar dam before heading to our hiking start point of Hafrahvammar.

We hike along the riverbed of the massive ravine which is one of the deepest in Iceland at 200 meters (656 feet). From this angle, we discover a whole new world of natural discoveries while crossing streams in the canyon and breathing in fresh Arctic air.

After our hike, we take a short drive to Laugavalladalur Valley for a dip in the natural warm pools and the warm flowing waterfall. This delightful day of discovery ends in Egilsstaðir or at your accommodation.
