Traveling Solo to Iceland?

Join us Trek Iceland and other solo travelers on famous the Laugavegur & Fimmvörðuháls Trek. This trail was chosen one of the "20 Best Hikes in the World" by National Geographic and what better way to try it than with other like-minded spirits. Joining a hiking tour in an undiscovered country like Iceland is a fantastic way to get to know new people and bond over epic views and remarkable experiences. Our Laugavegur Trekking Tours have always been very popular with solo travelers so we decided to dedicate a whole departure in 2017 to our solo participants. This is your moment to get a flavor for Icelandic nature and welcome new friends from all over the world into your life.

The Laugavegur Trail

The trek itself starts in Landmannalaugar, a geothermal wonderland, known worldwide for its multicolored rhyolite mountains and warm hot springs that locals have enjoyed soaking in throughout the centuries. The scenery is enchanting, while we make our way to the highlands and throughout the 6-day hike where you will be greeted with fields of obsidian, colorful mountains, black sands, hot springs, geysers, sparkling white glaciers and glacier rivers, elf churches and so much more. 
While absorbing all of Iceland’s natural beauty your guide will tell you about these mysterious areas, the landscape, flora, fauna and folklore tales known before only to locals. You will be guided safely through this magical area we call home, stopping at all the right places to make sure you get the absolute best experience.

At the end of the Laugavegur trail, we find ourselves in Thorsmork, a surprisingly green and fertile valley which is named after the Norse god of thunder Thor. Thorsmork is nestled at the foot of the glacier Eyjafjallajokull which became world known in 2010 when it erupted, stopping almost all air traffic to and from Europe. From Thorsmork, we will hike up the valley, between Eyjafjallajokull and Mýrdalsjökull glaciers, through a pass known as Fimmvörðuháls. This is where we find the two new craters that were formed in the eruption, Magni and Modi, named after the sons of Thor. These newly formed craters are some of the spectacular things you will see and experience on this 6-day trekking tour.

We spend our nights in rustic mountain huts at beautiful remote locations which we think adds to the charm of the hike. The locations include gorgeous places like Álftavatn, Hrafntinnusker and Thorsmork. In the evenings, the whole group will join to help to prepare delicious meals together, a great way to bond and get to know each other creating a friendly and smile-creating atmosphere. Sometimes we even take an evening stroll to areas off the beaten track to visit some of the enchanting secret places we have been finding in the past years.
