Mt. Hekla and Sydra Fjallabak ( departure from South coast)

We drive up Hekla volcano and go through the highlands on and beside the famous walking track Laugarvegur in a wonderful volcanic scenario. As we head back to the lowlands we will have a look at the spectacular canyon Markarfljótsgljúfur the unique mountain Einhyrningur (which means Unicorn!!) and drive beside the glacier river Markarfljót with Þórsmörk on the east side of us.
