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.
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).
