Canyons and Waterfalls
The Combo Trail
Having a hard time deciding between The Waterfall Trail and The Canyon Trail? Why not do both?
Here we combine the two tours in one 8-11 hour excursion in the Icelandic highlands. Hiking down into the canyon Laxárglúfur of the river Stóra-Laxá. Looking off a cliff to see Iceland’s second highest waterfall Háifoss of 122 meters (400 feet), a stop to see the ruins of Stöng, a Viking settlement farm, experiencing Gjáin, one of nature’s masterpieces, and enjoying the super peaceful and beautiful Hjálparfoss waterfall all in one day will totally rattle your senses.
The guide knows every twist and turn and is able to cruise over the Icelandic highlands on a specially modified super-jeep. This combo tour is an action packed day-long adventure where you will experience extraordinary sights. You will also be spending time with a local guide full of factual information about the area, along with folklore and fun stories that might not slip through the polygraph.
