ABOUT THE TOUR
Visit the hidden mountains surrounding Vík, where you will find very few people but many stories that have been passed down through the generations. This is a unique experience made possible only with a local guide from Katlatrack.
From Vík, we will drive down a road that previously served as Route 1 from 1934-1955, until a flood (possibly due to the Katla volcano) destroyed the bridge, resulting in the road being moved to its present location. Along the way, we will venture up into the high mountains, visit caves and learn their history, experience “force stones”, and stop at a mountain campsite and narrow canyon with a high waterfall, where we will take a one-hour hike. Dress in warm layers, and bring your hiking shoes!
