Unbelievable, how many different landscapes you can see just in three days of walking. Lavafields, snowfields, tundras, deserts, forests and disney-like views of Þórsmörk. I loved every minute of this hike. However, I would not be the first one to remind people of a proper...More

Recently hiked the Laugavegur Trail from Landmannalaugar to Þórsmörk (Thorsmork) and it was incredible. The weather was a bit challenging the first day, especially with a lot of snow-cover trail early in the hiking season, but the beautiful views more than made up for it....More

We hiked from Landmannaulagar to Selfoss (via tosmórk (with that weird ‘p’) in 5 days, with 1 day and extra overnight stay in tosmórk. What a magical experience it was!! Not a very technical trail, usually easy to find with the odd part that needs...More
