The Laugavegur Camping Trek - Four day tour in tents
If you don't like the idea of shared dormitory accommodation this version of the Laugavegur trek is for you. We stay in 2 person tents along the trail and dine in a dining tent. Our luggage is transported between camps so during the day we only carry our daypacks, and each night we set up camp at the next location. Our first camp is at Landmannalaugar where we get the chance to go on a short hike on the first day before setting out on the trail. However our second day becomes more demanding as we set out early and hike over obsidian lava fields and the area of the Hrafntinnusker hut all the way to Álftavatn lake. From here we make our way along the trail to Þórsmörk from where we take the evening bus back to Reykjavik.
Due to this trail's popularity, there is potential for irreparable damage to the nature that we all enjoy. As environmental stewards in Iceland, we are taking a proactive approach to preserve the trail and the surrounding environment by allocating 1% of the tour price for each passenger to our Environmental Fund. With us, you get to experience this amazing trail and minimise your environmental impact.
