Laugavegur, Landmannalaugar
(4.8/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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. A visit to Laugavegur represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Landmannalaugar vacation builder to plot your vacation.

  • Started my trek here. Very beautiful. It seems that 99% of people will come here and go back the next day so the following parts of the trek are less crowded. Either way, amazing and worth visiting. 
  • Country manna LAU at all has made us a lot of fun. If it wanders, comes it feels on a different planet. The many great colors, everywhere smell sulphur. When we migrated the weather was very different, we had Sun rain again. We went mid-September on this trip and it was quite cold to the late afternoon. Despite the vagaries of weather, many hikers have pitched their tents there, respect.
