More about this tour

The first part of the trip takes us up on the east side of Myrdalsjökull ice cap alongside the crystal clear river Hólmsá with its beautiful waterfalls.  We will travel along in the black Volcanic Desert “Mælifellssandur”, with the notorious volcano Katla lurking under the glacier to our right and the green mountain of Mælifell rising up ahead from the middle of the black desert.  

This is a truly awe-inspiring sight to behold-with every imaginable hue of green starkly contrasted against the black desert sand and rock. We will stop for lunch at the mountain cabin “Strútur”  (same word as ostrich in Icelandic).

From Strútur cabin we will embark on a 40 minute hike to the naturally Geothermal hot pool of Strútslaug.  There we enjoy relaxing time in the pool-right in the middle of nowhere! After the bath, we head back to our vehicle and make our way back to the crossroads where we started.
