Exploring Landmannalaugar on the Laugavegur trail in Iceland
As the most famous hiking destination in Iceland, the Laugavegur trail boasts the best sights there are to see in Iceland. Local tour company TREK Iceland offers a wide variety of treks, hikes and backpacking tours across the country, and the Laugavegur Trek that begins in Landmannalaugar is among the most popular. Running from mid-June to mid-September, groups fill up quite quickly as the trek is in high demand.
With the option of tent or hut accommodations, the 4 Day Laugavegur Trek is a moderate level hike that covers 55 kilometers of breathtaking terrain. Beginning the hike in the geothermal wonderland of Landmannalaugar among the colorful mountains and hot springs, trekkers cross through the obsidian desert by Hrafntinnusker, along the Reykjafj÷ll mountains and the hot yellow and red gullies of J÷kultungur, past the green volcano Stˇras˙la, into the black glacial desert of MŠlifellssandur, and eventually into the dense birch forest of Thorsmork.
This specific trek offers spectacular views of the volcanic glaciers Myrdalsjokull and Eyjafjallajokull, the 200 meter deep canyons of Markarfljˇtsglj˙fur, Seljalandsfoss waterfall, as well as the serene ┴lfavatn lake, otherwise known as Whooper Swan Lake.
