Footwear Shoes Hike Iceland Thorsmork

Footwear Clothing Iceland Hiking Shoes

The correct footwear is very important when you come to Iceland, specially if you’ll be doing some hiking. You need proper hiking boots with ankle protection and a thick sole, such as you can see in this picture. On the Thorsmork Wanderlust for example, we drive through rough mountain tracks and cross around 10 rivers. You can see the marks of previous volcanic eruptions and jökulhlaup (glacial floods) in the Glacier Gígjokull which is a part of the Volcano Eyjafjallajökull which erupted in 2010 and disrupted air traffic all over the world. So this is no terrain for city boots 🙂
