The “Iceland On Your Own Hiking Pass” is a great option for the adventurous traveler, as it is the ideal way to experience two of Iceland´s most popular hiking routes on your own. You simply purchase one pass and with it you get a bus transfer from Reykjavík to the start of your trail and back to Reykjavík from the end of the trail when you are done. Please note that traveling back and forth on the same bus route is not available. You can take as much time for the hike as you please within the pass time frame (14 June-20 September).
The Laugavegur hiking trail is one of the most popular hiking trails in Iceland and a favourite among the locals. The hike usually starts in Landmannalaugar and from there it is a 3-4 days hike to Þórsmörk (Thorsmork) nature reserve. This trail is a feast for the eyes, with diverse geological wonders, valleys, glaciers, mountains and unmatchable views.
Fimmvörðuháls hiking trail is another extremely popular route and during the last few years it has become something of a hit. One of the reasons for its popularity is the volcanic eruption that took place in the middle of the trail in 2010. The trail runs between the ever popular Skógafoss waterfall and the glorious Þórsmörk nature reserve. The hike takes you through a pass between the glaciers Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull and takes about 8-10 hours to complete, depending on the hiker’s pace. Travellers can even do the hike in 2 days, spending a night in the hut on Fimmvörðuháls along the way.
Hiking Laugavegur & Fimmvörðuháls
For experienced hikers, a combination of these two hiking trails is also an option. To hike all the way from Landmannalaugar to Skógar or vice versa, we recommend 5-7 days.
