Your Glymur hiking adventure will then start in Hvalfjordur (Whale Fjord).  If you are meeting us at location for the tour then you will join up with the group from the Glymur parking lot, please make sure to be ready at 9:45 am at Glymur parking lot.

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 3-4 hour hike through canyons, a birch forest, and lava fields. Start with a refreshing river crossing, then climb through 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 yet another exciting river crossing and experiencing an impressive landscape of a canyon, Glymur waterfall, cliffs, and lava fields we return to the original meeting 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.

Remember to bring: Lunch & snack, hiking boots, warm clothes, waterproof jacket & pants, backpack and river crossing shoes (old sneakers, sandals with straps or neoprene shoes).

What if I don’t own all of these clothing necessaries?
Don’t worry, you can always rent sturdy hiking shoes, waterproof jacket and pants in the booking process. We do not rent gear on location.
