Until Dec 17 From Jan 18

Iceland is one of those rare places on Earth that feels more science-fiction than fact, even when youre actually there. Get as close as you can to the incredible scenery by hiking the challenging route of the Laugavagur Trail where youll pass multi-coloured slopes, ice caves, and sweeping landscapes. Camp out for two nights, and pick from volcano alley or valley hikes in the area with the group. Whether its from the inclines or just from the view, prepare to have your breath taken away.

Day 2: Reykjavík/Landmannalaugar

Drive across to Landmannalaugar. Pass by Mt. Hekla en route, an active volcano that was once considered to be the gates of Hell which erupts every few years. Upon arrival in the afternoon, warm up your legs on a light hike.
The route through the highlands is a remote road that passes by Mt. Hekla. Often shrouded in cloud, this volcano was once believed to be the entrance to hell by early Icelanders. The road gets progressively more rocky as it climbs up to Landmannalaugar, the campsite for the night. At Landmannalaugar, there are hot springs and bathroom facilities to make the camping experience more comfortable. As this is the first night of camping, you will get a lesson in how to put up your tent as practise for the rest of the week.
