Detailed Description

It is never too a late to experience Iceland’s dramatic landscape with a trek across the sensational Laugavegur Trail. Your 7-day tour will encompass the wonderment cast by sherbet colored hills and soothing waters of naturally heated pools. Step outside of the urban experience to discover the depths of Iceland’s unadulterated countryside. The adventure will begin with your arrival at Keflavik International Airport. Your private transfer will welcome you to Iceland and lead you to the famous Blue Lagoon and Spa. Spend time to absorb the refreshing and healing properties of the geothermal lagoon before you continue to your luxurious hotel in Reykjavik.

Next day, your private transfer will meet you after breakfast and escort you to Landmannalaugar. The wonder of the landscape emanates from the black obsidian lava stream and with the contrasting hues of the hills. You will find soothing natural hot pools and soak in the water with an unparalleled view. Travel next to the trail of Lake Alftavatn. Venture uphill to the bubbling hot spring of Storihver and pass yellow, red, and black lava fields. Pass through Pass Hrafntinnusker and descend beneath the plateau to the Alftavatn for the night. Walk over wide expanses of gravel and sand the next day and go past the rushing rivers to the lonely depths of the countryside. The terrain is flat but also provides marvelous views to the surrounding mountains and glaciers.

Next, traverse the canyon cliffs that offer views of the Myrdalsjokull Glacier. A hanging bridge connects the canyon walls over Sydri Emstrua River, and you will cross the valley of Thorsmork before you reach Langidalur for the night. Next day, you will take a moment to ascend Valahnukur Hill for a view over the landscape before you embark on an excursion into Stakkholtsgja Canyon to see the waterfall where the canyon walls converge. Your transfer will meet you at the road and escort you back to Reykjavik where you have the remainder of the day at your leisure. Conclude as your private transfer will meet you in the hotel lobby and take you to Keflavik International Airport for your flight home.
