The Most Epic Hiking Adventure You’ll Ever Take

This webinar was presented on Thursday, May 27th, with AIMG Guide Alberto Ojembarrena in partnership with Condé Nast Traveler

The Icelandic Highlands are the most out-of-this-world place you’ll ever step foot in. With landscapes straight out of a science fiction movie, it’s like being transported to another planet. Local AIMG guide and photographer Alberto Ojembarrena will share all the details of hiking in this remote wonderland on some of the country’s most spectacular and truly hidden trails.

This adventure begins in Reykjavík, remote journeying through Iceland’s Highland region before linking up with the famous Laugavegur trail — known as one of the most beautiful hikes in the world — all while sleeping in mountain huts over twelve days. You’ll hike past colorful rhyolite mountains, geothermal features, turquoise lakes, and bubbling hot springs, through black desert sands, secret valleys, and lava fields, to end in the green valley of Thórsmörk — the place that owes its name to the God of Thunder. It is truly the epic adventure of a lifetime.

If you’ve ever been wondering about trekking the wilds of Iceland, now’s the time to find out.



  • Breathtaking photos and videos from the Icelandic Highlands (Seriously, you have to see these to believe them!)
  • Overview of the classic Laugavegur trail, one of the most beautiful trails in the world
  • See impossible landscapes, river crossings, midnight sun & incredible terrain
  • Weather conditions in the Highlands: experience 4 seasons in just few hours

Alberto will follow up with a live Q&A session, where you can ask him anything you want to know about hiking the legendary Laugavegur trail or any of the hidden gems mentioned in the webinar. Get free professional advice from a AIMG guide who calls Iceland home.
