The tour starts at the farm Fellsmuli, below Mt. Hekla, and takes us to the fascinating area between the mighty glacial river Þjórsá and the famous volcano Mt. Hekla. We will  ride on nice trails towards the cottage Rjúpnavellir, located in a beautiful, green area surrounded by bizarre volcanic landscape.  We continue  alongside Hekla until we reach Áfangagil, and further to the hut Hólaskógur. From there, we head north, following the ancient Sprengisandur road. We spend two nights in a cottage close to Hrauneyjar, exploring exceptional nature of the area. We than head back to Rjúpnavallir for another night. The tour ends at the farm Fellsmúli.
