The "Iceland's Laugavegur Trek" tour starts from and ends in Reykjavik. The "Iceland's Laugavegur Trek" tour is a walking tour that takes 7 days taking you through Reykjavik, Álftavatn, Landmannalaugar and Reykjavik in Nepal and Iceland. This is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Iceland is now firmly established as one of the most dramatic trekking destinations on the planet – the varied landscapes forged over eons by volcanic eruptions and gigantic glaciers. One of the most popular trails is known as the Laugavegur Trail, and this is the focus of our week. All meals are included while camping, and we start in the colourful Landmannalaugar mountains before heading to the dramatic Thorsmork region where we discover the craters from the 2010 eruption. Few trekking routes can match the striking vistas on offer here.

In addition, the early departures offer long days, up to 24 hours of daylight in July, while the late August and early September departures bring darkness and with that the chance to see the Northern Lights.
