  • Enjoy 6 days of exploring the picturesque Icelandic highlands and spend 4 days on the trail. Gather some co-workers, friends, or family and make your way to the Laugavegur trail—one of the “20 Best Hikes in the World” by National Geographic—for a hiking adventure you’ll never forget. Walk wild trails, traverse glacial rivers, explore majestic canyons and bathe in Iceland’s signature natural pools. Since you’ll spend a total of 4 days on the trail, you can take it easy. Your experienced and local women guides will make sure you experience Iceland’s wild nature in the best possible way!

    • Fimmvörðuháls is the magnificent high mountain pass between Mýrdalajökull and Eyjafjallajökull – the infamous volcano that erupted in 2010.

The scenery on the Fimmvörðuháls Pass is absolutely stunning. After arriving back at the huts in Thorsmork, top off this amazing adventure with a barbecue!
