Our secret: We have discovered a genius method to create a steam bath. Are you ready to try it? We have also experimented with steam cooking over hot springs and will definitely be continuing our research on this hike. Can we boil eggs? Hot dogs? Join us and find out.

On our downhill hike back towards Highland Base we will for sure try to liberate mom's toes, scramble up all the rocks we find along the way, talk about the scary meaning of Kerling in the Kerlingarfjöll mountains, examine every spider web, seek every snowfield and view from a safe distance the mountain of Thor, the god of thunder, which rises above our destination.

Our mantra: If our clothes are still clean after the tour, we haven't mucked around enough!

What to bring

Warm clothes and socks, wind- and waterproof jacket, sturdy boots, gloves, buff, hat, and sunglasses. Water, snacks, and a light lunch.
