HIKING IN ICELAND AMONG THE WORLDS BEST
Industry: Adventure       

The best way to experience the otherworldly wilderness of Iceland is by hiking. Listed not once but twice among National Geographic’s “World’s Best Hikes”, the Laugavegur trek offers a unique landscape that has inspired the likes of J.R. R. Tolkien and his descriptions of Middle Earth.

(TRAVPR.COM) ICELAND - February 25th, 2016 - Local tour operator TREK Iceland offers some of the country’s best hiking tours, including a 6 day hike through the jaw-dropping scenery of Landmannalaugar and Fimmvörðuháls.

At approximately 77 kilometers long, the moderate level trek takes up to 6 days to travel, and organized hikes take place between June 15 and September 19. With an option of tent or hut accommodations, visitors can choose how they wish to experience the ethereal beauty of Iceland.

It all starts in the geothermal wonderland of Landmanalaugar where the mountains are multi-coloured shades of red, brown, green and blue. The experienced guides lead explorers south through the Highlands along the Laugavegur Trail, and end in Thorsmörk, the wooded valley at the foot of the world-famous glacier Eyjafjallajökull.

Highlights along the journey include the new twin craters Magni and Móði formed by the 2010 volcanic eruption, still-warm lava, waterfalls of all shapes and sizes, and the surrounding glaciers. Nights are spent in picture perfect spots along the trail, and meals are provided throughout the trip.

While keeping explorers safe during the trip, the experienced and knowledgeable TREK Iceland guides will teach hikers about the geology and history of the land.

As a leader in Icelandic trekking tours, TREK Iceland offers year-round hiking tours throughout the country, with a team of experienced guides, for all skill levels. Visit www.trek.is to find out more about the Laugavegur Trekking and Fimmvörðuháls 6 day tour and a variety of other tour packages.
