In the 13th Century, 80 Knights Templar came to Iceland, clad in armour. What was their mission? Scholars and scientists alike have struggled to solve this mystery and recently the quest has led them to a remote corner, hiding in the shadow of the Kerlingarfjöll mountain range. It is a truly remarkable place, graced with waterfalls, deep, dark canyon and all kinds of nooks and crevices.

On this relatively easy hike our expert guide will fill you in on all the incredible details of this story and show you the amazing natural amphitheater believed to be the hiding place of the most sought after relic in all of human history. Maybe you will be the one to find it? Bring a hat and a whip: It has always worked for Indiana Jones 😉

More about this tour

Meeting point

All Outsiders tours start from Highland Base Kerlingarfjöll and are self-drive to the trailhead. 

Find your guide at the reception 15 minutes before departure. Bring your backpack, an adventurous spirit and a smile - let's head OUTSIDE for an adventure!

 

Duration 2 - 3 hours

Distance 4 km

Elevation gain Little to none

Skill & Fitness level Novice. All levels

Gear included None

You bring Warm clothes and socks, wind- and waterproof jacket, sturdy shoes, gloves, buff, hat and sunglasses. Water and snacks.

Minimum age 5 yrs

 

Warm clothes such as wool, fleece/soft-shell, hardshell and a puffy jacket are mandatory on all tours. On a good summer day it is possible to strip down to a thin shirt and stuff the rest in a small backpack, but usually only for a short while! The Icelandic weather is famously volatile and warm layers and rain gear should always be at hand. 

Good and sturdy hiking boots or trail shoes are a must. On most tours we will encounter the legendary multicoloured mud of Kerlingarfjöll that tends to stick to the bottom of shoes like glue! Pair your boots with warm and soft hiking socks and you're golden.

Don't forget gloves. Yes, also in the summertime :) Plus something to cover your neck and head with. Preferably that something is made out of wool, which means it doesn't loose it's insulation qualities if wet. 

Also bring sunglasses and hiking poles, if you've got them.

Last, but not least. Fill your water bottle with the pure Icelandic tap water and slip it into your backpack along with some energy bars / snacks. If the tour lasts more than 3 hrs. you should also pack a light lunch, such as a sandwich.
