About the tour

Laugavegur Trek, South Coast & Glacier Hike

Hike from Landmannalaugar to Thorsmork, Explore the South Coast & Hike on Solheimajokull Glacier

The Laugavegur Trail

Popular in Iceland for many centuries, the Landmannalaugar to Thorsmork hike gained international recognition, when it was selected as one of the "20 Best Hikes in the World" by National Geographic. It will take you across ever-evolving landscapes, crafted by volcanos and glaciers throughout the centuries, giving you a true understanding of how Iceland came to be known as the land of fire and ice.

Our adventure starts in Landmannalaugar, renowned for its rainbow-colored rhyolite mountains, which change color as the sun hits them. Then as we move deeper into this stunning Icelandic wilderness, we will encounter jet-black volcanic deserts of lava, emerald hills, uniquely shaped mountains, seething hot springs, crystalline glacial rivers and ancient valleys steeped in Icelandic folklore.

South Coast Highlights & Glacier Hike

On our final day, instead of returning to Reykjavik, we will spend our day on the south coast where we will spend our day visiting beautiful natural wonders and hiking on a glacier. We will see a duo of cascading waterfalls called Seljalandsfoss & Skógafoss, the incredible Reynisfjara black-sand beach, famous for the fascinating basalt rock formations that populate its cliffs and end our day exploring the fascinating Solheimajokull glacier.

Our friendly guides will help you to explore this alien world, guiding you to all the hidden spots of beauty that lie slightly off the beaten track. Ensuring that you are safe while telling you everything that you need to know, about the things we see and explaining the rich cultural history that has made it such an amazing hiking destination.

Our nights will be spent in secluded huts, perched high up in the hills, giving the trip a more natural and authentic feel. The group will prepare traditional Icelandic meals together and this teamwork and camaraderie often means that people make friends that last a lifetime. On the last night, you will stay at a country hotel in Hella, located on the south coast of Iceland.

The Laugavegur trek is an awe-inspiring experience that will take you deep into an unspoiled natural wilderness. From places of exquisite natural beauty to harsh volcanic landscapes, and much, much more, the Laugavegur Trek is a bucket-list experience that has everything that you could ever ask for.
