Experience the Classic Laugavegur Trek

The rumors are true! Trekking in the southern highlands, from the geothermal hot spots in Landmannalaugar to the lush green landscape in Þórsmörk valley, is even more beautiful in person. Your highly experienced and knowledge trekking guide will take you in between vibrant yellow rhyolite mountains, over black sand deserts and past majestic canyons during this adventure. The magical and diverse landscape, combined with the long and bright Icelandic summer days, will capture your nature loving heart. Your guide will show you all the popular sites and hidden gems along this trail and tell you stories and folklore. In the evenings, you will relax and rejuvenate in cozy mountain huts and enjoy delicious Icelandic meals. We top off this amazing adventure with a celebratory BBQ on the last night in Þórsmörk. It is not a coincidence that this trail was named as one of the 20 best treks in the world by National Geographic.

Customer Reviews

How do I start this...I celebrated my birthday with a trip to Iceland. We did the 5-days Laugavegur trek first and then another 5 days sightseeing in Reykjavík. For me the trekking experience was amazing. The weather was so nice during the trekking, mostly sunny with a few cloudy moment here and there. Our tour guide Greta was caring, fun, knowledgable, very helpful and a good story teller. I love listening to her stories, especially the ghost one! The scenery on the 5-days trek was breathtaking, so raw, pure, and untouched in some places. The only suggestion I would have is the hut accommodation, I hope they would put less people in a tiny room (I still couldn't believe that 20 adults were actually sharing a tiny hut). Other than that, hands down the best Laugavegur trek in Iceland!!!
