Description
Waypoints (0)

Day two of the Laugavegur trail starts by walking across a ravine until you reach an area with a short climb. Here you will see a spectacular panoramic view of colorful mountains.  This is the highest elevation for the hike. Next you will walk along a ridge until you reach another panoramic view of a green valley.  The trail now descends quickly into this valley towards a lake where Álftavatn Hut lies. This section is very steep with a lot of switchbacks. Once down in the valley, the trail flattens as you walk the final stretch to Álftavatn.
