Start at the parking lot Borgaras. Follow the well signed path direction Kirkja keeping always left. Follow the path at the sign Grojtagja, walk through the lava gate and follow the path straight to the crater. The way up is steep and sandy. Once you reach the top you can decide to walk all way around or just rest and enjoy the view. Follow the same path back. After crossing the lava gate keep left to Kirka and then back to the parking lot.

Wonderful walk through the lava fields and up the volcano. I enjoyed doing the hike backwards, since the volcano climb is a little strenuous. My teenagers enjoyed the climb too. Bathrooms and a cafe are located at the entrance of the hike. Great signs on the paths. Hiking boots and water recommended.
