DAY 3  |  In Between the Glaciers - 106 MILES

The hot pools at Landmannalaugar, where we will bathe are one of many manifestations of geothermal activity in the area. From the hot pools, the track takes us to Tungnaá River toward Vatnajökull Glacier and Langisjór Lake.

  • Head back down by the Skaftá River to a volcanic fissure stretching from Mýrdalsjökull Glacier almost to Vatnajökull and over to Eldgjá, a canyon about 60 km long, 600 m wide and up to 150 m deep. It was formed in the year 934 during one of the largest volcanic eruptions in Iceland in historical times.

In 1783, lava flowed across the flat land destroying a large number of farms, stopping just outside the small town of Kirkjubæjarklaustur. The total area of the resulting lava field is 565 km². We will go over a small section of it on our way to Kirkjubæjarklaustur.

The locals call this road Öldufellsleið and it connects Skaftártungur and Rangárvelli. Throughout this spectacular road you will be able to see Mýrdalsjökul and Eyjafjallajökul, two of the most famous glaciers on Iceland. While riding behind the Mýrdalsjökul, we will pass the famous black desert with one of the most beautiful volcanoes Mælifell on our way to a real nature miracle canyon Markarfljótsgljúfur.

THINGS TO REMEMBER:

  • The weather on Iceland can differ from day to day and rain is not unusual. Make sure that your clothes really are waterproof. Waterproof socks are a recommendation, since we often ride through water.

  • Be prepared that the temperature commonly varies between 40- and 60-degrees Fahrenheit on these trips, and windchill can be a factor. So good water and windproof motorcycle gear and layers is key.

  • Remember that a travel insurance is required in case you get ill or injure yourself. Check it with your insurance company or credit card company to ensure that you are covered. Do also verify coverage for medical expenses by your health insurance company.

  • Make sure to bring a bathing suit for the natural swimming pools and hot tubs. We love to get into the naturally hot geothermal water as often as possible.
