44 EPIC Pictures To Spark Your Hiking-Lust For The Magical Icelandic Highlands

If you long for awe-inspiring landscapes, enjoy immersing yourself in breath-taking nature and are curious to experience how it might feel to walk on another planet, then the Icelandic Highlands are perfect for you. Here you can really get your adventure and hiking-lust satisfied. There’s boiling water and smoke coming out of the ground itself, massive glaciers, rainbow-coloured mountains, incredible views and ever-changing weather. This is nature when it is best – in its raw and untouched form!

We hiked the EPIC 4-day Laugavegur Trail in the magical highlands of Iceland, and even although we have long-since travelled on, we still can’t get our arms down. This experience was truly legendary and we’ll never forget it! Don’t you want that for yourself as well? 

We are here to help! We have written an extensive guide to the trail that includes everything you need to know before planning and embarking upon your own adventure. Check it out. Why wait? 

The Laugavegur Trail, and all the day hike detours, must be experienced by yourself. However, we thought an inspirational picture post would serve as a good motivator to kickstart things. We’ll show you a small part of all the amazing vistas and landscapes that awaits you up there. After all, a picture says more than a thousand words, right? Let’s see if we can ignite your hiking-lust! 

We hope you like the pictures. Should you have any questions or comments, or if you want even more tips and tricks for your adventure, give us a shout in the comments below or contact us on social media. We really, really, really want your hike to be just as epic as ours!
