Laugavegur Trail Guided Walk

If you are planning to do one walk in Iceland and you are short on time, this is the logical choice. The best known of all treks in Iceland, the Laugavegur Trail, offers all the colours of the rainbow over the course of the five day hike. Beginning in the geothermal valley of Landmannalaugar in the southern highlands the route heads south past small gorges to the Þórsmörk valley. Arriving at the foot of Eyjafjallajökull volcano which last errupted in 2010 and whose crater is completely covered by an icecap, marks one of the many highlights of the trip. The trail then crosses the third biggest geothermal zone in the world where steaming hot springs are dotted through the landscape, over the yellow rhyolite mountains, through black deserts, past great canyons and into the green valley of Thórsmörk. It is no coincidence that the Laugavegur hike each year attracts travellers from around the world in addition to being a great favourite amongst locals. Throughout this guided trip you will stay in mountain huts and marvel at the changing landscapes with your fellow-walkers.
