Iceland's Laugavegur Trail Guided Walk Tour Review

"The Laugavegur Trail with guide Emma and 15 European hikers was amazing...in late July ...and suitable for a variety of age groups with reasonable fitness levels and agility... there is a requirement for solo travellers occasionally, and travellers together usually, to sleep in shared small double mattresses in sometimes crowded huts (though no one had to sleep on the floor)! The unique and awe inspiring scenery, extraordinary weather, immediate camraderie, brought together by the incredible skills of our guide, more than compensated for the crowds that time of year."

Gain some insight into what it's like to hike Iceland's best known trail on a guided walking holiday with UTracks. View tours: https://www.utracks.com/destinations/iceland   ABOUT ICELAND'S LAUGAVEGUR TRAIL  #Hiking #Iceland #UTracksTravel  Cross the third largest geothermal zone in the world and experience dramatic landscapes and natural beauty like you've never seen before.   If you are planning to do one walk in Iceland and you are short on time, this is the logical choice. The best known of all treks in Iceland, the #LaugavegurTrail offers all the colours of the rainbow over the course of this 5 day #hike.   Beginning in the geothermal valley of Landmannalaugar in the southern highlands, the route heads south past small gorges to the Thórsmörk valley. Arriving at the foot of Eyjafjallajökull volcano, which last errupted in 2010 and whose crater is completely covered by an ice cap, marks one of the many highlights of the trip.   The #Laugavegur #Trail then crosses the third biggest geothermal zone in the world, where steaming hot springs are dotted through the landscape, over the yellow rhyolite mountains, through black deserts, past great canyons and into the green valley of Thórsmörk.   It is no coincidence that the Laugavegur #walk each year attracts travellers from around the world, in addition to being a great favourite amongst locals. Throughout this guided #tour you will stay in mountain huts and marvel at the changing landscapes with your fellow walkers and #guide.
