Description:

Laugavegur is beautiful. We have had great experience at this place. We camped there for 3 days and did hiking and trekking. The scenery was superb, no word can describe the uniqueness of this place and the pictures still not enough to explain the experience we had there. The campgrounds were well maintained and the staff at Hrafntinnusker, Emstrur, and Thorsmork were on top of cleaning bathroom/shower facilities. For somewhat physically active ones interested in seeing the beauty of the Laugavegurinn, I would recommend doing an exercise routing at least a month prior to the trek. I highly recommend some sort of water shoes and trekking poles for river crossings. If your boots get wet from the river (i.e hiking through with boots on or chucking them across, but not quite making it across), it will take a while for them to dry out. Trekking in wet boots=no fun. If you decide to double up a day (i.e Landmannalaugar to Alftavatn or Hrafntinnusker to Emstrur) you may want to allow enough time so you arrive before the sunsets. If you are nighttime trekking, be aware of trail markers. The Emstrur huts/campground is a little tricky to find, but just remember to take a break and be aware of your surroundings.
