We only have time to do an one-day trip. It is a long drive. But the view is well worth it. The only place you can buy food in this area is the school bus shop. It closes at 5pm for summer and have sandwiches,...More

Save a day to do the short hike. Weather Make sure you do it on a sunny or semi-sunny day. The whole area is about how far you can see and the hike is all about the colours of the mountains (beige and green) so...More

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

Fees are: transportation to site (usually the wonderful Landmannalaugar). Usually bus trip from Reykjavik. There are five huts (actually six, but two are close to one another) on the trip, and staying in huts is much more... More
