An off-road adventure that is so worth it. Although the road there seemed a little uncertain at times, it was by far one of the coolest places I have been/experienced. There is a natural hot spring nearby. We camped, and I recall the ground being...More

We finished our Laugavekur Trek and spent the next morning in the hot springs of Landmannalaugar. It felt like being in paradise. It is an experience to be lived by everyone.

We didn't want to do only the most touristy things when we arrived to Iceland so we rented a car and looked Landmannalaugar up. It was by far the most amazing thing on our trip. You'll need a four wheel drive car in order to...More

Hi, i found a bus which will be arrive around 11.30 am and back on 18:30. Is gives me almost 7 hours there? I read there is 6.5 km hike, and will take around 3 hours. How was the hike? And what to do for the rest of time? If i take the earlier bus, it will only gives me 2 hours there. Which one is better?

Hi, I am planning to visit Iceland in August and would love to do this trek. I am travelling solo and am a budget traveller I checked the prices on some of the tour organizing websites but the prices were exorbitant :(. Can anyone please advise about any company which will help me do this trek in a budget friendly manner. Thanks!
