About the tour

Now you have a chance to experience exceptional landscapes of the extended Laugavegur trail and geographical phenomena, to discover the land of extreme contrasts. You will be impressed by the unearthly beauty of Landmannalaugar, Laugavegur and Fimmvorduhals hiking trails and its natural surroundings.

Start in Landmannalaugar, one of Iceland's great wonders and most geologically active areas, with the active volcano Hekla in its neighborhood. Hike towards the ill-named crater lake of Ljoti Pollur (Ugly Puddle), to Iceland's most colorful volcano - Brennisteinsalda or Sudurnamur, rhyolite mountain with its superb view of the whole Landmannalaugar area. Enjoy swimming in a natural hot pool, where both hot and cold water flows out from beneath Laugahraun (Lagoon Lava) mixing to form an ideal hot bath.

Embark on the adventure of the Laugavegur and Fimmvorduhals Trek, a truly great trail winding into the essence of a place of a harsh and otherworldly splendor. Rambling lava fields, obsidian lands, caramel-colored mountains, black sands and sparkling white glaciers. Culminate your trip in the fertile and historic paradise of Thorsmork hiking to Fimmvorduhals Pass- the high spit of land between Eyjafjallajokull glacier and the larger Myrdalsjokull ice cap- and to the new twin craters, formed in the eruption of Eyjafjallajokull volcano in 2010, Magni and Modi. The valley Thorsmork is named after the Norse thunder god Thor who is believed to have struck down his hammer and formed the valley. The craters Magni and Modi were then named after Thor’s sons. The place itself is in one word magical!

The Laugavegur and Fimmvorduhals Trek was chosen one of the "20 Best Hikes in the World" by National Geographic.
