The famous Laugavegurinn Trail.
Surely, one of the most beautiful hiking trail in the world in an amazing country.
This is the complete tracklog.
Day tracks are here:
Note 1: If you want stay in the huts, you should book it very long time in advance. We do this trail in the end of July and we booked it in December. And even with this advance, we did not get place in Hrafntinnusker which is the smaller hut. If you stay in tent it should be ok for places, but note that the nights could be very very cold and very windy, specially at Hrafntinnusker.
Note 2: You will cross several rivers without your mountain boots. Crossing it barefoot is painful not only because the rocks but also due to the cold (very cold) water. Be smart and take with you something lightweight, plastic made and that fit enough in your feet to not be taken by the river current.
Note 3: Don't miss the Side Track to view the Canyon Markarfljótsgljúfur (in our case, day 3). The view of the Canyon is superb.
Note 4: In the trail between Émstrur and Langidalur (day 4 in our case), take the deviation to see the Canyon Markarfljótsgljúfur. Not so impressive that the side track referred before, but even spectacular.
