Iceland : Laugavegur Highland Walking Trail

Departures: 15 June - 7 September Duration: 6 nights Price: from £1,100

One of the most popular walking trails in Iceland, the Laugavegur route stretches from the famous Landmannalaugar thermal pools, across the rugged highlands of Iceland and into the verdant green valley of Thorsmork. This small group trek encompasses hot springs, glinting glaciers, colourful mountains, thundering waterfalls, volcanic ash deserts and deep river canyons.

** Visits areas seen on Julia Bradbury's Iceland Walk **

 

Introduction

Who for? If you've been inspired by the BBC programme 'Julia Bradbury's Iceland Walk', then this fantastic itinerary explores those areas. 

Highlights

  • Exploring truly remote areas, only accessible on foot
  • Landmannalaugar's steaming hot springs
  • Central Icelandic highlands
  • Lush Thorsmork valley and 'Thor's Wood' which was deeply affected by the Eyjafjallajokull eruption in May 2010 - witness the power of the planet first hand 

On this 5-day trek, with the support of a 4x4 jeep transfer for food and equipment, enjoy the company of between 4-14 fellow hikers in total, staying in tents en route. Group participation is required in putting up the tents, cooking and general 'housekeeping' duties whilst on the trek - a fun and rewarding experience all round!
