Vilholdt Rejser offers a hike along one of the most popular hiking routes in the world – Laugavegur.
Certainly one of the most beautiful hiking routes in the world, where the landscape changes colors and changes all the time. Imagine hiking up into the highlands with a view of 3 glaciers and a landscape so magnificent that you will have a hard time keeping your arms down with excitement.
During this 5-day walking tour, you will experience most of what Icelandic nature has to offer. Get up close to the volcanic landscape and its lava fields, glaciers, fast-flowing waterfalls, the beautiful green liparite mountains, hot springs and birch forests – a unique vegetation. You also get the opportunity to experience a real Icelandic wilderness that cannot be compared to others.
Local Icelandic guides, luxury food and good service
Vilholdt Rejser offers a fully serviced walking tour with great food and only uses local Icelandic guides. Our experienced guides guide you throughout the trip and provide good food throughout the hike - preferably with a helping hand from you. In addition, the guide can tell many stories about the area and Iceland.
You only need to carry the most necessary equipment on the hiking route itself and the guide transports your luggage between accommodations. As there is limited space in the car (jeep), you must limit your packing.
We give high priority to safety, so you can walk safely on your own between the accommodations and enjoy nature. The weather conditions in Iceland and in the highlands can change quickly and therefore it is important to have experienced local guides with you who know the area and safety. Therefore, we only use local guides with great knowledge and experience in nature and you can expect trained staff who are flexible and can change the route quickly if necessary.
It is important to point out that you are walking alone in nature. The guide transports the luggage, cooks, guides and is available throughout the trip.
