Day three you can admire the largest volcanic canyon in the world; Eldgjá and the Ófærufoss waterfall that sits in the fissure of this ‘canyon of fire’.

As you reach the peak of this tour, you can run around the valley of Þórsmörk; one of the country’s most popular hiking destinations. The breathtaking beauty of this mountain ridge nestled between three glaciers is an unforgettable viewpoint. You will also get the opportunity to hike under the infamous Eyjafjallajökull glacier and volcano.
