This incredible 8-day tour is ideal for anyone who wants a true Icelandic adventure. It starts on the world-famous Laugavegur Trail, renowned for its glorious mountains, ominous black sand deserts, and sprawling glaciers. Then continues into the fascinating volcanic world surrounding Eyjafjallajökull, before exploring the South Coast and Golden Circle.
The first 6 days of the tour are spent trekking in Iceland’s untouched Highlands, beginning at the colorful rhyolite mountains of Landmannalaugar. The tour then proceeds through some of the most dramatic natural scenery on the planet. We'll see glassy obsidian fields, black deserts interrupted by electric blue glacial streams and emerald-colored mountains, ominous volcanos, mighty glaciers among other sights.
The Laugavegur Trail finishes in a verdant oasis called Thorsmork, but our adventure will only be at the midpoint. We’ll hike the spectacular Fimmvörðuhals mountain and see an ever-changing volcanic wonderland that was created by the notorious Eyjafjallajökull eruption in 2010.
We'll leave the wilderness on day 7 and explore the wonders of Iceland's South Coast, before going on an amazing glacier hike. Then spend our final day on a small-group minibus tour of Iceland's iconic Golden Circle. We'll see Iceland's most famous attractions, including Thingvellir National Park, the Geysir Geothermal Area, and Gullfoss. Then to top everything off, we’ll have a relaxing soak in the Secret Lagoon, the perfect end to an action-packed 8-days.
A knowledgeable local guide will be with you every step of the way to really make the 8-day adventure special and make sure that you don’t miss anything. We’ll stay in secluded mountain huts during the trekking part of the tour and eat dinner under the midnight sun, switching to comfortable hotels on the final two days.
We’ll also provide a support vehicle, so you won’t need to sacrifice luxury during the trek. You’ll only be carrying a day backpack with a water bottle and anything you may need on the hiking trail. If you want an 8-day adventure that offers a complete Icelandic experience, then this is the only tour for you!
