IntroductionNoted for its grasslands, this popular hiking and four-wheel-drive route winds between Iceland's Hofsjokull and Langjokull ice caps and reaches an altitude of 2,300 ft/700 m. The highlight of the trail is Hveravellir, a geothermal area of differently colored hot springs (which form natural hot tubs) and fumaroles (volcanic "chimneys" in the ground that release smoke and fumes). Also on the track is Kerlingarfjoll ("Witch Mountain"), a summer ski camp. The route is about 150 mi/240 km long, between Blonduos and Hella.
