About the tour

Laugavegur & Fimmvorduhals Trek, South Coast and Glacier Hike

The Ultimate Trekking Tour in Iceland & Highlights of the South Coast 

The Laugavegur Trail

The Laugavegur trail is a trek you will remember forever. There is a good reason this trail has been a local favorite for centuries.

Explore the wonders of the Icelandic landscape in stunning rural settings. The trek itself starts in the colorful nature reserve of Landmannlaugar high in the Southern Highlands of Iceland. This place is known for its geothermal activity, sour magma mountains, and volcanic looks. The scenery of Landmannalaugar is breathtaking with multicolored mountains and fields of lava... and that's only the beginning. During these 7 days, you will encounter some of the most beautiful places this world has to offer. The landscape, the dramatic effect of nature, the flora, the fauna and the folklore tales your experienced guide will tell you about will fill your trip with adventures and memories to last a lifetime. 

All of this on a small group of like-minded people from all over the world. The Laugavegur is known to bring people together as the group shares memories that will last them a lifetime. 

We spend our nights in rustic but charming mountain huts at beautiful remote locations which adds to the charm of the hike. The locations include gorgeous places like lake Álftavatn and Þórsmörk valley. If the group is up for it we will take evening strolls to areas off the beaten track to visit some of the enchanting secret places we have been finding in the past years.

Fimmvorduhals Pass

At the end of the Laugavegur trail, we find ourselves in Þórmsörk e. Thorsmork, a surprisingly green and fertile valley which is named after the Norse God of Thunder Thor. Thor is believed to have struck down his hammer and formed the valley. Thorsmork is nestled at the foot of the glacier Eyjafjallajökull which became world known in 2010 when it erupted, stopping almost all air traffic to and from Europe. The two new craters that were formed in that eruption were named Magni and Modi after the sons of Thor. These newly formed craters are some of the spectacular things your will encounter on your last day as we make our way over the Fimmvörðuháls pass. 

South Coast & Glacier Hike

Instead of heading back to Reykjavik, we stay in the south for some south coast sightseeing and glacier action. The last day includes a visit to all the highlights of the South Coast, including Seljalandsfoss & Skogafoss waterfalls, Reynisfjara black sand beach and the amazing Solheimajokull Glacier, where we put our hiking boots back on for a glacier exploration.

It's the ultimate tour for all hiking & outdoor enthusiasts looking for a surreal experience, combining highland trekking, south coast sightseeing and a glacier hiking adventure. Experience extreme contrasts in nature with epic landscapes - this tour has it all!
