Iceland's ultimate hiking adventure awaits.

The popular Laugavegur hiking route from the Landmannalaugar region to the Þórsmörk area is a 56-kilometre (35-mile) multi-day hike that attracts backpackers and hikers worldwide. If you’re coming to Iceland to hike just one trail, this is the one. Its popularity stems from various landscapes: bubbling hot springs, vast glaciers, beautiful mountains, stunning waterfalls, and roaring rivers.

Landmannalaugar is a major hub for hikers, and for very good reason—several well-maintained trails throughout the region range from day hikes to multi-day treks. The landscape is one of wonder, with vast valleys, colourful rhyolite mountains, hot springs, and riverbanks. Trekking in the southern highlands, from the geothermal hot spots in Landmannalaugar to the lush green landscape in Þórsmörk, is even more beautiful in person. 

During this adventure, your experienced and knowledgeable hiking guide will take you in between vibrant yellow rhyolite mountains, over black sand deserts, and past majestic canyons. The diverse landscape and the long, bright Icelandic summer days will capture your nature-loving heart.

Your guide will show you all the famous sites and hidden gems along this trail and tell you stories and folklore. In the evenings, you will relax, rejuvenate in cosy mountain huts, and enjoy delicious Icelandic meals. We top off this fantastic adventure with a celebratory BBQ on the last night in Þórsmörk. It’s not a coincidence that National Geographic named this trail one of the 20 best treks in the world.
