The Landmannalaugar Þórsmörk trek is well known in the world and the most popular by hikers in Iceland. These 55 scenic kilometers well deserve the reputation: colorful rhyolite mountains, glaciers, geothermal springs, steam columns, black sands desert, rivers and large lakes.
Although the distance can be easily covered in two or three days, why hurry? Take the full four days trek and enjoy the views.

During the visit in Iceland you cannot miss Icelandic horses. They are everywhere, along the sides of the roads and in many farms scattered all over the island. The story of the Icelandic horse begins when the Vikings first arrived in Iceland with their horses and since then, for more than a thousand years, no other horses were brought to Iceland.
