As the scene unfolds, you will capture the sight of mini glaciers, high energy steam springs, and arctic vegetation which together create unique color combinations. You will also be crossing a river with a bank of black sand.

The trip highlights Hvítárvatn Lagoon, Langjökkull Glacier, Hveravellir Hot Springs, and Kerlingafjöll, a tall mountain range part of a large tuya volcano system.

Day 3 - Sultarfit to Selfoss (301 kilometers)

The Fjallabak region takes its name from the numerous wild and rugged mountains with deeply incised valleys. It is said that riding there is like being in the Lord of the Rings movies.

From the hot pools, the track takes you to Hrafntinnusker, home of the obsidian rock. With some river crossing, you will find Markafljót canyon and follow the river to the lowlands.
