Canyon hiking is a wonderful way to take in East Icelands hidden scenery and get close to wildlife. We begin with a drive to admire the magnificent manmade wonder of Krahnkar dam before heading to our hiking start point of Hafrahvammar.

We hike along the riverbed of the massive ravine which is one of the deepest in Iceland at 200 meters (656 feet). From this angle we discover a whole new world of natural discoveries while crossing streams in the canyon and breathing in fresh Arctic air.

After our hike we take a short drive to Laugavalladalur Valley for a dip in the natural warm pools and the warm flowing waterfall. This delightful day of discovery ends in Egilsstair or at your accommodation.
