Overview

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. On this small guided group trek there are hot springs, rugged glaciers, colourful rhyolite mountains, immense waterfalls, volcanic ash deserts, deep canyons and panoramic views.

Highlights

  • exploring truly remote areas only accessible on foot
  • Landmannalaugar's steaming hot springs
  • spectacular 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 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!
