We will enjoy the connection with the wild nature that floods in this place, where only the faint sound of water and sometimes the wind is heard. Night in the mountain hut.
    Day 5: Hiking to Skælingar
    Today we will go to the magical & mysterious area of Skælingar, a millenary lava field near the Skaftá river.

    Day 8: Hiking to Strútur
    Today is the longest day of the whole trip. We will continue along the course of the river and we will need to cross the canyon once more to head towards a new stage.
