15 km (9.3 miles)
What a beautiful day for the last section of your journey! Today the trail will take you within a few kilometres from the great Myrdalsjokull Glacier.
As your descend towards Almenningar a few trees can be seen, a sign that you are getting closer to the coast. You walk under the characteristic Mt. Einhyrningur and into the dense birch forst in Thorsmork.
Mt Einhyrningur (750m) is located between the small Tindfjoll Glacier and the bridge across River Markarfljot. The name means “The Unicorn”, and is derived from the shape of this low mountain. Its slopes are rather steep, but it is not too difficult to climb. At the foot of the mountain, on the so-called “Unicorn Plains”, is a hut used by the farmers of the Fljotshlid County, when they round up the sheep in the area late in summer.
Thorsmork is a green valley nesting under the glaciers Eyjafjallajokull and Myrdalsjokull and is the end of your journey!
