Frequently asked questions

What type of clothing do I need to pack for a hiking tour in Iceland?

Always prepare for all kinds of weather, even if the forecast is good. Bring warm layers made out of wool and fleece. Don’t wear cotton, it has bad insulating capabilities and dries slowly when wet. Bring waterproof clothes and good hiking boots. If you are camping, be sure to carry a warm sleeping bag, a sturdy tent and an insulating mattress. Never underestimate the Icelandic weather.

Is it okay to wear sneakers when hiking in Iceland?

No, unless the hike is very short and across comfortable terrain. Proper hiking shoes with ankle support are always recommended.

Are there any short hiking tours near Reykjavik that I can do in a day or half a day?

Yes, there are plenty of hiking options all over Iceland, including the area surrounding Reykjavík. Heiðmörk is a nature reserve on the outskirts of the capital, with plenty of short hiking trails. Many small mountains are very close to Reykjavík, including Mt. Mosfell, Mt. Helgafell, Mt. Keilir and Mt. Esjan. 

Can I hike in the Highlands all year round?

No, the Icelandic Highlands are only accessible during summertime.

What is Laugavegurinn?

This is the name given to the most popular hike in Iceland, the 55 km (34 mi) hike between Landmannalaugar and Þórsmörk. It holds the same name as Reykjavík’s busiest shopping street. It crosses mountains, a glacier, and several unbridged rivers, and the scenery is stunning. There are huts at the start and end of the hike, and three huts along the way. It is also possible to camp on numerous sites. Most people hike Laugavegurinn in 3-4 days. The trek is demanding and requires a lot of planning.
