Suðurárbotnar - Útbruni - Fjárhólarborg - Bræðraskarð - Bræðrafell (FFA Hut)
We spent two days hauling our pulks through the Útbrunahraun lava stream from Suðurárbotnar in the direction of Herðubreið. These two days included a lot of icelandic weather. We saw the endless horizon on the clear but very stormy first day and literally "the nothing" on the second day.
In summer times this area is one of the most uninhabitable of the world, no water is found in the
porous lava except snow fields that remind on harsh and even more hostile winter times. But there is one advantage of winter when plenty of snow fills the sandy depressions between waves of
chaotic lava. The progress is a bit more straight forward compared to summer times...
The vastness is unbelievable and I think it wasn't possible for me to photograph this appropriate, nevertheless you find a lot of pictures in the gallery above. Enjoy some views of this even in summer rarely visited area!
