The rumors are true! Trekking in the southern highlands, from the geothermal hotspots in Landmannalaugar to the lush green landscape in Þórsmörk valley, is even more beautiful in person. You will traverse 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 highly experienced and knowledge trekking guide will show you all the popular sites and hidden gems along this trail. 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 our the last night in Þórsmörk.

Customer Reviews

“The Laugavegur Trail took us 4-5 days and this was at a fairly leisurely pace. The scenery was spectacular even though the weather was mixed and staying in the hostels/huts was interesting and fun! We made great friends with the group and have been in touch since, sharing photographs. The thing I will remember most, apart from the scenery, will be the smoked lamb, Icelandic bread and tubes of caviar! “
