We hiked from Laugavegur (Landmannalaguar) to Fimmvorouhals pass over 4 nights and 5 days. We did this independently and booked huts about 5/6 months in advance. We booked all the accommodation in January and a lot of it was already selling out, because of this...More

My wife and I travel to Iceland primarily to do the Laugavegur hut to hut hike, which is one of the most popular in Iceland. The scenery was spectacular, the guide informative, and the food surprisingly good for a trip of this nature! Iceland is...More

You have to hike to experience the trails and you are rewarded with some amazing view. The suplhur springs are pretty abundant and you can smell it in the air.

this is on the golden circle, and you can't miss it. the strong odor of sulfur kind of just appears. the steam/mist in the distance also alerts you to this area.

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
