Day 3: Álftavatn to Emstur
Length: ~15 km
Time: ~ 6-7 hours
Good to know: this hike is longer than the first 2 days. Take a longer lunch break at the river with waterfall.
Tip: several river crossing are included in this part of the hike. Be prepared for ice-cold glacier water. Near the Emstur hut there is a nice canyon to visit. Walking time 30 to 40 minutes one direction.
Cost: camping fee´ s can be paid in the hut with credit card.
Personal Opinion: the hike was again really beautiful and the changing surrounding was worth all the steps. Nether the less for me the last 3 to 4 kilometers felt like forever, and I was happy when the camp side was reached.
