Starting the Laugavegur Trek in Landmannalaugar, a geothermal paradise globally known for its steaming hot springs and colorful rhyolite mountains. From there we make our way deeper into the highlands where we are greeted with glaciers and glacier rivers, black sands, hot springs, waterfalls, geysers and volcanoes. Scenery and landscapes throughout the trek are truly breathtaking. With numerous stunning natural features in every step and views over mountains and glaciers as far as the eye can see. While absorbing everything Icelandic nature has to offer our guides will tell you about these mysterious areas, the landscape, flora, fauna and folklore tales that Icelanders have been brought up hearing throughout the centuries.

Our guides will always make you feel safe while we make our way on this unforgettable trail, stopping at all the right places making sure you get the absolute best experience every day. We spend our nights in remote mountain camps at enchanting locations like Álftavatn , Emstrur and Hrafntinnusker which we think adds to the rural charm of the hike. In the camps, the guides 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 see some of the secret places we have found trekking the area off the beaten track.

At the end of the Laugavegur Trek, we find ourselves in Thorsmork (Þórsmörk), a green and fertile valley which takes its name from the Norse god of thunder, Thor, who is believed to have created the valley by striking down his hammer. Thorsmork is nestled at the foot of the famous glacier Eyjafjallajokullwhich erupted in 2010 and completely reformed some of the area.

The Laugavegur trek gives you the opportunity to explore some of the most remote places in Iceland all while enjoying the magical beauty of Icelandic highlands.
