In the 13th Century, 80 Knights Templar came to Iceland, clad in armor. What was their mission? Scholars and scientists alike have struggled to solve this mystery and recently the quest has led them to a remote corner, hiding in the shadow of the Kerlingarfjöll mountain range. It is a truly remarkable place, graced with waterfalls, deep, dark canyon and all kinds of nooks and crevices.

On this relatively easy hike our expert guide will fill you in on all the incredible details of this story and show you the amazing natural amphitheater believed to be the hiding place of the most sought after relic in all of human history. Maybe you will be the one to find it? Bring a hat and a whip: It has always worked for Indiana Jones.

What to bring

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