Tour Details

LAUGAVEGUR & FIMMVORDUHALS FAMILY TREK

On this tour we start in Landmannalaugar, a geothermal wonderland, and make our way south through the Highlands. On the way we view fields of obsidian, red and yellow mountains, black sands and sparkling white glaciers. The Laugavegur trail ends in Thorsmörk, a green valley nestled at the foot of the famous glaciers Eyjafjallajökull and Myrdalsjokull. From Thorsmork we hike up to the newest craters at Fimmvörduháls named Magni and Móði, after the sons of Thor, the Norse god of thunder. The area is still warm since the eruption in 2010. On this 6 days trek you experience some of the best Icelandic nature has to offer glaciers, volcanoes, lava fields and geothermal colors and hot springs. The track is maintained and your guide will ensure you do not miss the best spots along the way, explain the scenery around you and geological history of Iceland. Laugavegur and Fimmvörðuháls trek was chosen one of “20 Best Hikes In The World” by National Geographic. It’s a great adventure for families and a great way to meet other families travelling in Iceland.
