In Hvalfjörður we are lucky to be surrounded by multiple magnificent hiking trails of all levels. Our favourite being Glymur waterfall.
Glymur was once deemed the ‘tallest waterfall in Iceland’,
but had to hand over its title after the discovery of a new
waterfall at the edge of Morsárjökull. That being said, Glymur is
still really tall and really impressive. This hike is considered
to be one of the most beautiful in Iceland. You cross a stream on
a log, walk through a cave and make your way across the waterfall’s river barefooted. The scenery will soften the
straining feeling and make it majorly worth it. Not to mention how
beautiful it is to look at the waterfall once you’re up. Coming
down from Glymur should take around 1 to 1.5 hours.
Here are few more hikes that we highly recommend:
Fossdalur, 2 - 3 km.
Blikadalur, 2 km.
Síldarmannagotur, 14 km.
Leggjabrjótur, 15 km.
Botnssúlur, 16 km.
