Reykjavik - Landmannalaugar

Taking a bath

Guests are picked up at 08.00 to 08.30 in the morning from their accommodation in Reykjavik. We drive to the beautiful rhyolith area Landmannalaugar were we will spend the afternoon with a relaxing walk through this colourful landscape. A black obsidian lava stream forms a magnifique contrast to the green, white, red and yellow hills. Here in Landmannalaugar is one of the few possibilities to take a bath in a natural hot pool, surrounded by this fascinating landscape.

hiking group in Iceland

We will start early today, as we have a long day ahead of us. But we needn’t worry because our bus driver will take care of our luggage and bring it to Alftavatn. We only carry the things we need for this daytrip. At first our hiking path is slowly uphill until we get to the hot spring area of Storihver which lies fascinating between the yellow, red and black lava. As soon as we passed Hrafntinnusker we will have a great view and walk on the plateau until we descend to Lake Alftavatn and our hut for this night.(walking time about 8 hours).

Alftavatn (530m) - Emstrur (500m)

Today we will walk over wide and expanse areas of gravel and sand, crossing few (rather cold) rivers. While walking we can feel the wideness and loneliness of this country. Today’s terrain is rather flat but with a wonderful view to the surrounding mountains and glaciers; (walking time: about 6 hours).

Emstrur (500m) - Thorsmörk/Langidalur (200m)

Glacier in Iceland

The walk starts east from the hut through a colourful canyon and we will have a great view to the Myrdalsjökull glacier. We cross the river Sydri-Emstruá on a bridge and the trek runs easily along the river Markarfljot. The closer we come to the green valley of Thorsmörk the more we understand why Iceland is called the country of contrasts. Before reaching Thorsmork we’ll need to wade one river; (walking time: about 6 hours).

Before leaving Thorsmörk we will climb the hill Valahnjukur for a good view over the valley, the glaciers and rivers here. We will walk into the small canyon Stakkholtsgja and find there a very beautiful waterfall. We pass by a small glacier lake and perhaps we even will see some icebergs swimming in this lake. Driving along the green South Coast of Iceland we come back to Reykjavik.
