- Off the beaten track
If you want to get off the beaten track without you finding yourself too far from civilisation, the Laki craters are a good compromise. Accessible only in summer and with a 4x4, you get off the main road and will certainly find fewer people around you.
In any case, that is what happened to me when I visited the region. I took track No. 26 and found myself alone facing the immensity of the site. In fact, Laki is a succession of craters that extends over 25 kilometres and still testifies today to the power of the eruption of 1783, which would also be the cause of the famine which led to the French revolution a few years later...
A hiking trail allows you to learn more about this eruption.
