Probably the most famous hiking trail in Iceland today is the Laugavegur trail from Landmannalaugar to Thorsmork. It is a fascinating highland path where people go through all kinds of landscape and many geological wonders. A typical time for the hike is four days and five nights as most people spend a night in Landmannalaugar, the base camp, before starting and one night in Thorsmork, the oasis, at the end. Although the hiking trail is not particularly challenging, it requires some serious perpetration. The trail goes through some difficult terrain, and that requires good shoes. One can also expect any weather that requires light and wet weather clothing. The trail is in a remote area in the Highland, so a compass and a good GPS is required. If all preparation and understanding of both difficulties and challenge are in place, the trail can be a thrill of a lifetime.
