Laugavegur, Landmannalaugar

#1 of 14 in Trails in Iceland
Hike through volcanic landscapes filled with lava fields, glaciers, natural hot springs, black arctic deserts, and forested valleys on Laugavegur, Iceland's most famous trail. The trail, described by National Geographic as one of the world's most beautiful treks, connects a hot-springs area and a glacial valley. While walking through lava fields, watch for the colorful rhyolite mountains. You typically can complete the 55 km (34 mi) route over two to four days. You will need to make stops at rustic mountain huts or campgrounds along the way. The hike can be challenging if you are carrying your food and camping gear with you.

  • We only drove a small distance from Landmannalaugar because we had the car there. The route was not challenging (but I can't say any more) and offers beautiful views with amazing colors. If you can't make the full journey (it takes several days) try to travel at least one stretch.

  • A little tricky to get to because of the floods and snow, but it's worth it. I understand that in summer it will be easier to get there. The scenery is spectacular, both with snow (in September) and it must also be in the middle of summer without snow.
