Laugavegur Trail


Laugavegur Trail
West Iceland

The Laugavegur Trail was chosen one of the "20 Best Hikes in the World" by National Geographic and for a good reason.

The trek itself starts in Landmannalaugar, a geothermal wonderland, known worldwide for its multicolored rhyolite mountains and warm hot springs that locals have enjoyed soaking in throughout the centuries. The scenery is breathtaking, while we make our way to the highlands and throughout the 6-day hike where you will be greeted with fields of obsidian, colorful mountains, black sands, hot springs, geysers, sparkling white glaciers and glacier rivers, elf churches and so much more.
While absorbing all of Iceland’s natural beauty our guides will tell you about these mysterious areas, the landscape, flora, fauna and folklore tales. You will be guided safely through this magical area we call home, stopping at all the right places to make sure you get the absolute best experience of Laugavegurinn as the locals call the trail.

We spend our nights in mountain huts at beautiful remote locations which we think adds to the charm of the hike. The locations include gorgeous places like Alftavatn, Hrafntinnusker and Thorsmork. In the huts, the guide will, along with the group, prepare great meals to enjoy together in a magical environment and atmosphere. Sometimes we even take an evening stroll to areas off the beaten track to visit some of the enchanting secret places we have been finding in the past years.

At the end of the Laugavegur trail, we find ourselves in Thorsmork, a surprisingly green and fertile valley which is named after the Norse god of thunder Thor. Thor is believed to have struck down his hammer and formed the valley. Thorsmork is nestled at the foot of the glacier Eyjafjallajokull which became world known in 2010 when it erupted, stopping almost all air traffic to and from Europe. The two new craters that were formed in that eruption were named Magni and Modi after the sons of Thor. These newly formed craters are some of the spectacular things you will see and experience on this 6-day trekking tour.

• Great choice for solo travelers (no single supplement)!

***In the end of August and September, we have the chances of seeing Northern Lights on the the Laugavegur trail. Join us as we explore the highlands together.***
