The weather was cool and rainy while we hiked the path to the mountains. The vistas were incredible! The plain is surrounded by the rhyolite rocks. We only stayed for a short time before we had to leave, but it was worth the trip. Highly...More
We have 4 kids (9 to 14), and wanted to experience the laugavegur trail, but didn’t want to take the risk of hiking with the kids in snow and poor unpredictable weather
Instead we decided to stay overnight at landmanlauger and thorsmork huts (one night...More
We arrived here and saw the few campers left. It is getting cold and late in the season but a few campers are left. We are here for hiking. Our guide said it is about 7 kms. The first kilometer is very manageable even for...More
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.
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
We spent a day here to visit the area and appreciate why this place is so popular. Very far away from theoutside world (long dirt track to get here). While there are many people at the parking and tiny welcome center you can walk any...More
I hiked alone from Landmannalaugar to Skogar in 4 days in early August 2018. I got the trex bus at 0715 from Rekjavik which arrives at Landmannalaugar about 1130 or so. I spent the afternoon doing a couple of day hikes in Landmannalaugar which I...More
This is a beautiful hiking trail with truly unique scenery only found in such a place as Iceland. It begins in Landmannalaugar at the campsite near the Hot Springs. We only hiked for a few hours, but I believe you can hike along this trail...More
Realise not easy to locate full info (access,route) on internet about day hike here. A quick summary of my day hike experiences in Aug
4WD is a must if you plan to drive there. There are three routes to go to the camp...More
We (5 of us) hiked the Laugavegur trail and Fiimmvorouhals pass in 5 days total, in huts, independently and not with a tour company. Best hike ever!! Loved it!!! Started July 27, 2018 and reached Skogar on August 2, 2018. The hiking, views and companionship...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 expensive than camping. At each designated site you can stay in a hut, or camp in a tent. Food is another expense, which you largely have to bring with you (there is a restaurant at the Alftavatn hut and then at Volcano Huts n Thorsmork.) These restaurants are good but expensive. There is no fee to access the trail. This is an absolutely wonderful trek, and I've just done it for the second time, now with my 16-year-old son.

Also; if you do travel inland using own transportation, please be aware to NEVER leave the tracks. Doing so will damage nature and being Iceland that will easily take over a decade to be replaced /regrow. Even if the greenery doesn’t look much and there is another car approaching, please be careful. We spotten quite a lot of damage done by people by not being careful (or just uninformed) and it’s such a shame.

When hiking from Landmannalaugar you are at the start of the Laugavegur trail. For a day trip you can do 5-7 km. loop up to Brennisteinsalda and possibly Blahnukur but Stórihver is too far. Now it is also possible to stay overnight, then you get to see the amazing colors in the evening and morning light and it is way more quiet in the off-peak times fo the day.
