Tour 2 – Summer 2014 – Day 10

Day 10: Another day of many many water crossings. Interesting drive through the interior to our campsite in the south at Seljalandsfoss, which is on the route into Porsmork nature reserve.

Covering lava deserts, fantastic views of Mýrdalsjökull  glacier which covers an active volcano called Katla. The caldera of the volcano has a diameter of 10 km (6 mi) and the volcano erupts usually every 40–80 years. The last eruption took place in 1918.

Evening visit into Porsmork – Gigjokull where the flood water from Eyjafjallajökull erupted in 2010.   Seljalandsfoss you can walk behind and the waterfall Gljúfrafoss we can walk into.
