Fimmvörðuháls is a pass between two glaciers (Mýrdalsjökull and Eyjafjallajökull) in southern Iceland. It is also the centre-piece of a 25km walk from Skogar to Thorsmork, now interrupted quite magnificently by the fresh lava fields of the 2010 eruption (yes, that one). It is a classic Icelandic route and each midsummer, hundreds walk the whole trail in one go, under the midnight sun.
I walked it at the end of June 2012, when things were a bit quieter, with a group organised by Utivist. My photos from those couple of days are here; to provide some commentary, I’ve also posted my journal entries from the walk here:
