Iceland sits astride the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, and this morning you’ll note just how fragile the earth’s crust is here. Hundreds of steaming hot springs and mud pools stretch across this lunar-like terrain; this could only be Iceland.
Distance 10.9 km
Ahead, sight the Myrdalsjokull and Eyjafjallajokull glaciers which sit atop slumbering volcanoes; the latter’s ash cloud being infamous for causing havoc to airspace in May 2010! Arrive at the Alftavatn (translates as ‘Swan Lake’) Hut in the afternoon, for an overnight stay.
