Itinerary

Day 1Reykjavík
Arrive at any time.
Day 2Reykjavík/Landmannalaugar
Drive across to Landmannalaugar. Pass by Mt. Hekla en route, an active volcano that was once considered to be the gates of Hell which erupts every few years. Upon arrival in the afternoon, warm up your legs on a light hike. The route through the highlands is a remote road that passes by Mt. Hekla. Often shrouded in cloud, this volcano was once believed to be the entrance to hell by early Icelanders. The road gets progressively more rocky as it climbs up to Landmannalaugar, the campsite for the night. At Landmannalaugar, there are hot springs and bathroom facilities to make the camping experience more comfortable. As this is the first night of camping, you will get a lesson in how to put up your tent as practise for the rest of the week.
Day 3Landmannalaugar/Álftavatn
Follow the Laugavegur Trail, one of Iceland's most famous hiking routes. Pass rivers and streams while hiking from Landmannalaugar through the mountains to Lake Alftavatn.
