Itinerary

Day 1: Reykjavík - Landmannalaugar

Today you will start from the center of Reykjavik to make the most of the day. The drive to Landmannalaugar will take about 3-4 hours, along the south coast, and then up into the highlands, where you will spend the rest of the week.  

The journey is highly scenic and fascinating, taking you by the magnificent volcano mountain, Hekla, the most active volcano in Iceland. This volcano as said by many Europeans in the Middle Ages to be 'The Gateway to Hell,' has erupted every 10–15 years throughout the last century.  

Landmannalaugar is the starting point for the Laugavegur trail. You will make your way through the Laugahraun lava field and Vondugil canyon. You will also admire the incredibly vibrant colors of the rhyolite mountains, most notably Mt. Brennisteinsalda. On the way back to Landmannlaugar for overnight, you will see the Graenagil gorge and climb up to Blahnukur Volcano if time allows.  

Distance: 8km/4.9mi  

Walking time: 4 hrs  

Ascent: 470m/1540ft
