About this trip

The Laugavegur Trek is a 35 mile hike over 5 days from the hot springs of  Landmannalaugar to the forested valley of  Þórsmörk (thorsmork).  The landscape is so varied and other worldly, you just might think you were on another planet.


Be wowed. Traverse rainbow rhyolite mountains down into steaming geothermal areas that give way to bubbling mud pools surrounded by vibrant green lime colored moss. Trek through valleys of obsidian (Dragon Glass to all you Game of Thrones fans), and walk over snow, ford glacial rivers, and across an expansive lava sand desert. 


Be part of the legacy. Come see for yourself why National Geographic names the Laugavegur Trek one of the top 20 hikes in the world. 




Ready for adventure!

This is a challenging trip but not impossible. Know your limitations.


Recommended for those that are physically active and have some experience with hiking 4-5 hours in mountainous terrain with a backpack. 


On this trip we walk 6 - 7 hrs per day, 5-10 miles per day (see the itinerary). Longer mileage is for less challenging days.


Terrain is uneven, rolling, or steep assents and steep descents on varied substrate (snow, gravel, sand, and water).

This was an amazing experience for my son Gregory, he truly had the best time. The whole process to book was effortless and very organized,. The trip was beautiful, so much to see and learned. My son enjoyed his accommodations, he said the food was delicious and the activities engaging and fun. He loved swimming with the sharks. Our leader Mrs. Lowe is very professional, caring and attentive to every detail. We were so lucky to have Mrs. Lowe as our leader, she knows best! This is a lifetime experience!

Tara and Jeannie were amazing! This was an epic and well-planned trip. The food was excellent, and I loved that all the details were taken care of. I would recommend this trip to any woman who wants to travel to Alaska solo (or with a friend!) and wants to see the beauty of the Alaskan wilderness.

Tara and Jeannie were phenominal guides and Alaska was INCREDIBLE! The trip was well organized and we moved through each adventure packed day without a hitch. Jeannie and Tara made it seem effortless, although I know it wasn't. I highly recommend Green EdVentures to anyone who understands their physical limits and is willing to test them to the max. Alaska was my second trip with Green Edventures and it surely will not be my last. Thank you Tara and Jeannie and all of the great travel buddies I had the pleasure to spend a week with in the 49th great state of Alaska!

Edna thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I'm so happy you enjoyed Alaska. I'll pass on your kind words to Jeannie! Looking forward to the next Edventure!

I just returned from the Wisconsin Women's Tour and couldn't have asked for a better trip! For me, the amount and type of activity were perfect. Who know there was so much to discover practically in my own backyard?
