This was a great hike. I am not very a very experienced hiker and was still able to do this in 2 days with ~7.5 miles before lunch and ~7.5 after. Add a third day to get to Skogar. Recommend 3 nights camping (but packs could be much lighter if you do all huts!). First pre-hike night at Landmannalaugar. Second night at Hvanngil (had dinner in Alftavatn). Third night at Basar or Skagfiorosskaili.

This walk is great for any experience of hiker. The lake is beautiful & today the colors around the lake were great. There were a lot of people on the trail today also. Very busy trail.

This is not a real hike. Good for those with little kids. I went super early to catch the sunrise and ended up seeing two moose (cow and calf). That was amazing, but before that I ran into a loud and obnoxious group of college kids there for the "gram". That was very annoying. If you go be respectful of the stillness especially in the early morning hours.

Incredible hike with amazing views you won’t see anywhere else! The weather is tough and can make an otherwise pleasant walk a miserable trudge. We narrowly missed a snowstorm in late August that would have shut our trek down. It’s well worth the effort though, no matter the weather!

Amazing Trail. Also went all the way to Skógar. Definitely worth the extra couple days to see all the waterfalls at the end.

Great trail for any age, well maintained & beautiful views of mountains!

beautiful views of the aspens changing color and the reservoir was calm. I did lose the trail looping around from the trail side around to the dam, so be careful and make sure you stay near the water. great hike with my pup and not a ton of people - tho it was getting busy on our way back to the car!

Really nice hike, though my Garmin clocked it at closer to 4.5 miles. Nice steep (ish) incline for the first couple miles, but the views are awesome. We went last Thursday in the afternoon and there were maybe 4 or 5 other people on the trail. Super close to town. Really convenient.

Mildly steep, quick ascending trail. Totally beautiful reward arriving at Lake Agnes. All by ourselves, no one out there but us. Monday 6a start time.

Beautiful, short hike with some short areas of heavy climbing. We parked at the winter lot because that is where the GPS directed us, and walked up the road. I think it's about 2-1/2 miles roundtrip when parking from this lower lot,

beautiful trail and view. Well maintained.

Short walk around Bear Lake. Nice little nature trail.

Great hike but totally did it at the worst time where sun was blazing and it made the climb much harder. The last bit of the loop was my favorite- fun rock formations and great views.

A trail you have to hike. Recommend to visit at the end of August.

Short hike but very pretty. Kids loved it, but wanted to go up to where the snow was (we live below sea level). Strolled around the lake and then decided to hike all the other lakes.

Very pretty short walk around the lake. Heavily traveled on the Thursday afternoon we went. This is an easy hike, perfect for families with young kids.

nice view of mts. But ,don't bother , overcrowded , man made lake, murkey, little or no fish , flies when u try to eat. lots of ppl. very nice view of mountains though.

Easy hike with beautiful views of the lake.

My favorite multi-day trek to date. Geothermal activity, glaciers, volcanos, lava fields, waterfalls - it has everything. We stayed in the Huts and met great people. Felt fortunate with the weather - only light rain a few days. Could see how fog or snow could make the trail harder to follow, but otherwise was well trafficked and marked. Would highly recommend staying a night in landmannalauer and also continuing on either 1 or 2 days to Skógar - possibly the most beautiful part of the trip.

Great family hike. (Walk) Kids loved this. 7, 4, 3, 1. It’s very busy early in the day but less crowded later in the day. We hiked this area two days in a row. I would definitely recommend this to family’s with young kids.

Very short and easy. Short hike for end of day to avoid the crowd.

Great wide path around the lake. No hills, super flat. Gorgeous scenery. We went at 6:30am on a Sunday and were one of a few people there. Great time to go before the crowds.

Loved the hike and the peaceful lake.

Very easy and beautiful. Keep walking for more of a challenge and an even better view.

Crowded, but beautiful. Enjoyed the beauty!

Amazing scenery! Great for beginners

Super busy, great sights. Start early

Beautiful lake. Reading the map I was worried about the % grade, but it was easy. Took pictures at most rock outcroppings. Enjoyable and great views.
