Practical Info

It is not advised to attempt hiking at Fimmvörðuháls outside of tourist season or without a guide and proper equipment; the geography and terrain provide conditions for violent Nordic storms, and all visitors should be prepared for drastic and sudden changes in weather. This hiking trail is accessible from the famous Skógarfoss Waterfall, which is located about two hours outside of Reykjavik (154 kilometers) via route 1, Iceland’s Ring Road. Parking is easily accessible and free of charge at Skógarfoss. It is also possible to book day tours from Reykjavik or Seljalandsfoss, or, alternatively, to reach the start of the hiking trail by public transit with buses 11 and 51 from Reykjavik.
