Iceland's Laugavegur Trail

Iceland’s Laugavegur trail is one of the world’s classic treks, traversing the volcanic highlands of southern Iceland. The 53km route begins at Landmannalaugar, a geothermal zone of bubbling natural hot springs, and then passes through a dramatic landscape of rhyolite peaks, yellow mountain ridges, lava fields, mud pools and waterfalls before descending into the wooded valleys of Thorsmork, the forest of Thor. Staying overnight at characterful mountain huts in dramatic locations, you will be able to share stories from the trail with fellow trekkers over dinner each night. Wonder at the theatrical Eyjafjallajokull, the active volcano that caused havoc in 2010, and enjoy the trek that National Geographic included as one of the “20 Best Hikes in the World”!
