We'll begin the trek in Landmannalaugar a geothermal area that translates as 'People's Pools' and is renowned for its incredible natural beauty. It is home to a myriad of hot springs set amongst dramatic rhyolite mountains (renowned for their colourful hues), including, the highlight of day one's trek, Mt. Brennisteinsalda (the Sulphur Wave), the most colourful of all! We'll also pass the steaming vents of Stórihver “(large spring”) hot spring and the black desert Hrafntinnusker.

We will arrive at our accommodation in the early evening, and enjoy a delicious meal whilst enjoying the stunning surroundings.

After breakfast, we'll begin our third day of trekking by wading through a stream on the way to the volcanic deserts of Maelifellssandur.

Day 4- Emstrur - Thorsmork

After a final breakfast with the group, we'll depart for our final day's hike, passing Mt. Einhyrningur, which translates as Unicorn Mountain, due to its unique shape which resembles the mythical animal. From its summit, we'll enjoy stunning views of Mýrdalsjökull, the fourth largest glacier in Iceland, before continuing on our trail, passing through, rugged, yet verdant landscapes to our final destination Thorsmork which translates “Valley of Thor", as according to legend, the great god created the valley when he struck the mountain range with his hammer. The perfect place to end our journey, the valley is truly beautiful, home to a blend of rugged and verdant scenery, with dense birch forests and a diversity of wildlife.

After spending some time relaxing and enjoying the surroundings (and snapping some all-important pics) we'll depart for Reykjavik, stopping at the spectacular Seljalandsfoss Waterfall along the way.
