Trekking towards the Torfajökull icecap, Iceland
Our trek started after a night at the Fljótsdalur Youth Hostel, a traditional Icelandic building with grass on the roof for insulation. Warm and very welcoming inside, with the relative luxury of a variable electricity supply from a generator fed by the stream higher up the hill. Fortunately we'd been transported to the hostel by 4-wheel-drive vehicle, as the nearest bus stop is 26km away...
