Laugavegur trail is a scenic path in the southern highlands of Iceland where geothermal activity meets glaciers and raw landscapes. This is a supported moderate 6-day hike. We will have a highland truck driving hut to hut with our luggage aside from our daypacks. Every day feels completely different from the next. Maximum guests per tour is 8, which is much lower than usually here in Iceland. With such group size we can also travel much easier at the group speed and have extra luxury with the food. For example of what a food in in a day might look like check the full description. Everything is included in this tour from our meet-up point downtown Reykjavík. This tour will be guided by myself, I have guided this tour about 20 times so far.
