Choose where to start
your Laugavegur and Fimmvörðuháls hike
The Laugavegur and Fimmvörðuháls trails are two of the most popular hiking trails 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.
