Laugavegur Trail is a 32.6 mile heavily trafficked point-to-point trail located near Vík í Mýrdal, Suðurland, Iceland that features a lake and is rated as difficult. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from June until August.
This is the most famous trail in Iceland. A 4-day trek across the Icelandic wilderness - polychrome mountains, lava fields, black sand deserts, geothermal springs, glaciers, lakes, icy river-crossings, grassy plains and forests. This walk really has it all - simply magnificent!
I did this trail when I went to Iceland last summer (2016) with my native friend and as well as being considerably difficult to reach the top of one of the mountains through rocky, snowy, and other kinds of terrain, it was also indescribably beautiful and would do it all 1000 times over.
I only regret that I didn't have the app at the time of my time here.
Scenery was unlike anything I've ever seen!
Amazing trail that can be really hard when the weather conditions are not ok. On this trail you can see everything that Iceland has to offer: volcano, hot springs, rivers with drinking water, glacier, waterfalls etc.
Iceland's most popular trail and trek. It features ever changing and stunning scenic views across volcanic terrain, tundra and over mountaintops. It starts in Landmannalaugar and end in the forests of Thorsmork. The trekking season is quite short and is heavily traveled, mostly north to south. There are huts along the way which can also be camped at with tents.
