5 DAY LAUGAVEGUR TREK WITH A GLACIER HIKE

What to expect?

5 DAY LAUGAVEGUR TREK WITH A GLACIER HIKE

We start in Landmannalaugar, a geothermal wonderland, and make our way south through the Highlands. On the way lies fields of obsidian, red and yellow mountains, black sands and sparkling white glaciers. We stop at different areas each night hiking from hut to hut and ending in Thorsmork, a green valley nestled under the famous glacier Eyjafjallajökull and Myrdalsjokull. All meals are included and your guide is there to provide local information and assistance. The Laugavegur trail together with Fimmvörðuhals pass was chosen one of "20 Best Hikes in the world" by National Geographic. After the trek we will explore the magical south coast where we will join a glacier hike and explore beautiful waterfalls and the magnificent Black Sand Beach.

Day 5: After a good night sleep in hotel in Hella we will take a trip to the magical south coast of Iceland where we will for example see some beautiful waterfalls and embark on a Glacier Hike.
