Jökulsá i Lóni és un gran riu procedent de l'est de la gelera Vatnajökull. El seu curs baixa per un accidentat paisatge de Lonsöraefa abans d’arribar a formar un delta que acaba a Lónsvik. En el seu curs, rep l’aigua de diferents torrents. Molts islandesos recomanen molt caminar per aquest lloc, en especial per del Hvannagil Canyon, un dels canyons més impressionants de tot el país, amb uns sorprenents que li donen les de roques de riolites.

Ruta: Lonsoraefi (47 m) – Hvannagil Canyon (72 m) – Hvannagil Canyon exit (100 m) – Hvannagil Canyon viewpoint (168 m) – Selgil (210 m) – Raftagil (169 m) – Selfgil N zone (130 m) – Gildrufjall W zone (147 m) – Ring Road 1 (35 m) – Lonsoraefi Route (15 m) – Fellshamar (30 m) – Lonsoraefi (47 m)

Accés: Stafafell, al sud-est d’Islàndia, es troba a uns 70 km a l’oest de Djípivogur i a 30 km a l’est d’Höfn
Stafafell, in the South East Iceland, about 70 km west of Djípivogur amd 30 km east of Höfn

Caminada: Hem iniciat el recorregut a la zona coneguda com a Lónsöraefi, just on el canyó de Hannavegil s’ajunta amb el riu Jökulsa i Lóni. Rumb al N ens anem endinsant al canyó i anem remuntant el curs del riu, que travessarem algunes vegades. Aquest cop no ens hem hagut de descalçar, però acostuma a ser habitual haver-lo de travessar a gual. Entre parets de riolita, amb tots els colors de l’arc del Sant Martí caminem prop d’un quilòmetre i mig. En veure un corriol que s’enfila per el costat esquerra del canyó, el prenem per guanyar altitud i situar-nos per damunt, des d’on gaudim d’excel·lents vistes. Ens arribem fins a un punt amb espectaculars vistes panoràmiques. Del canyó i alguns cims de la part NO de la gelera Vatnajökull. Ens trobem dalt d’un altiplà per on comencem a caminar rumb al ESE fins a trobar el curs del Selgil, per on remuntem el torrent fins a un petit però bonic salt d’aigua. Ara seguim el curs del torrent que s’ajunta amb el seu veí Raftagil. El camí, senyalitzat amb estaques, va seguint paral·lel al torrent fins que aquest gira al S. Just en aquest punt, nosaltres seguim la traça marcada amb estaques i ens dirigim al petit turó de Selfgil, que voregem per seu vessant N. Continuem caminant per aquest inmens prat en direcció a Gildrufjall que voregem per el costat W. Ens acostem prop del riu Jökulsá i Lóni, que es troba 70 metres per sota, i per corriols baixem a trobar la carreta Ring Road 1. Des d’aquest punt retornarem a trobar el cotxe, que es troba 5 kilòmetres amunt, tot remuntant la Lónsöraefi Route, una pista que s’endinsa a la muntanya per el marge esquerra del riu

Trail description: We have started the route in the area known as Lónsörafi, just where the canyon of Hannavegil joins the Jökulsa and Lóni river. We head towards the ridge and go over the course of the river, which we will cross a few times. This time we have not had to barefoot, but it usually happens to have to to ford by wading on foo. Between riolite walls, with all the colors of the rainbow we walk about a kilometer and half. When you see a path that climbs to the left side of the canyon, we take it to gain altitude and position ourselves above, from where we enjoy excellent views. We get to a viewpoint with panoramic views from the canyon and some peaks of the NO part of the Vatnajökull glacier. We are on top of a plateau where we begin to walk towards ESE until we find the Selgil course, where we return the stream to a small but beautiful waterfall. Now we follow the course of the stream that joins its neighbor Raftagil. There are some wooden sticks path, follows parallel to the stream until this one turns to S. Just at this point, we follow the path marked with wooden stiks and we go direction to the small hill of Selfgil, which borders on its slope N. Continuing walking through this immense meadow in the direction of Gildrufjall that borders on the W side. We approach near the river Jökulsá and Lóni, which is 70 meters below, and by sheep we go down to find the Ring Road 1. From this point We will return to find the car, which is 5 kilometers up, going back to the Lónsöraefi Route, a trail that goes into the mountain on the left bank of the river
