Day 1: Gljúfrabúi base – Landmannalaugar – Álftavatn



We start our day early from Gljúfrabúi base and head straight to Landmannalaugar and set out on our hike as soon as we get there. Through the geothermal landscape we set our aim for Álftavatn, on the way we'll pass Hrafntinnusker the obsidian desert where the place takes its name after. From there we head on towards our overnight stay, Álftavatn Lake, passing Mt. Reykjaföll and the picturesque Jökultungur (glacier tongues) area.



This is a long and demanding day, full of exciting highland adventure.

Day 2: Álftavatn - Emstur



We leave the hut after a decent breakfast and a worthy night’s rest. We continue on the Laugavegur trail heading towards Emstur. This part of the trail is easier than the day before and it'll take us through black sand deserts with fantastic contrast mountains, like Stórasúla and Hattfell. We then reach the hut in Emstrur (Botnar) where the glaciers Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull lie extended before us.

When dinner is finished, there is an optional evening hike towards the magnificent 200 meters canyon, Markarfljótsgljúfur. That's an evening hike that you don´t want to miss!



*Meals included: Breakfast, lunch, refrechments and dinner*



Álftavatn – Emstur: Distance: 15km (9.5 mi). Walking time: 5-6 hrs. Descent: 40 m (130′).

Day 3: Emstrur – Þórsmörk – Seljalandsfoss / Gljúfrabúi base



We leave Emstur and continue on our way to Þórsmörk, walking alongside Mýrdalsjökull glacier. As we descend to Almenningar, we'll see a change in the landscape when trees start to appear. The Laugavegur trail is now behind us as we reach Þórsmörk. Now we can enjoy the beautiful oasis, hiding behind Eyjafjallajökull glacier.

From Þórsmörk we head towards Gljúfrabúi base, but we still have one more stop, the magnificent Seljalandsfoss waterfall!

We expect to be back at Gljúfrabúi base in the afternoon.
