There are so many interesting, challenging and beautiful hiking trails in Iceland that it is impossible to name them all. Thórmörk is kind of a "highland" though not far from Reykjavík. From Seljalandsfoss waterfall, the one you can walk behind, there is 30-50 min drive on a good SUV, called super jeeps in Iceland. The best and most importantly safest way to make the most of your trip is to hire a private guide or book a privat tour in and around the island.
