Choose where to start your Laugavegur and Fimmvörðuháls hike
The Laugavegur and Fimmvörðuháls are two of the most popular hikes in Iceland, and since they are connected through Þórsmörk – many hikers choose to do them both one after another. Although most people start their hike in Landmannalaugar there are some who prefer starting in Skógar – and doing so has one major upside. A dip in the local natural geothermal pool at Landmannalaugar is the perfect relaxation at the end of your hike.
Distance: 77 km. Walking time: approximately 4 or 5 days.
