From the parking lot you will head towards Botnsdalur, a valley which hides a real gem of nature, namely the 198m (0.12 mi) high Glymur Waterfall. Once you reach the end of the road, you will put your hiking shoes on, grab your camera and set off on a 2-3 hour hike through canyons, a birch forest, and lava fields. You will be crossing a small cave where on the other side you will see: a glimpse of paradise, a clear and joyous stream running among moss and tall grass. Glymur Waterfall is a sight not to be missed with its grand posture and beautiful surroundings, an absolute must for all outdoor enthusiasts.
After experiencing an impressive landscape of a canyon, Glymur waterfall, cliffs and lava fields we return to the original meetin point where if you have booked the pick up service you will join our guide on a ride back to the city. We expect to be back in Reykjavik in the early afternoon.
