I, we, are off to Iceland in a few days to walk from Landmannalaugar down to Skógar and the Atlantic. We’ve been preparing for this trip for a while and made the last preparations yesterday with some additional notes on the map. Gear lists are done and everything is as ready as they can be.
Food for five days.

Reality is coming, we’re actually going to Iceland this summer! Booked the plane tickets today so now we’re underway, no looking back.
There are still things to do before everything is set, but as far as equipment goes there aren’t really any major things that need to be bought or changed. Our travel plans are quite good, still need some more details in the hiking schedule I think, just so we don’t miss anything that you really must see along the trail.
Our hiking schedule looks something like this (per day)
Arriving at Keflavik Airport 07.30 – transport to Landmannalaguar
Hiking starts – Landmannalaugar to Alftavatn
Alftavatn to Þórsmörk
See Þórsmörk – different excursions
Þórsmörk to Skógar – transport back to Reykjavik
It’s gonna be a blast but not even close as long as our trip to Jotunheimen last summer if we look at the distance. But that’ll give us time to explore and do excursions along the way which I find attractive. Especially as the nature in Iceland is fantastic, can’t wait to go back. It was the first thing I said to my parents when I came home from Iceland in 2002 – I must go back there! And now I’m doing it, 13 years later.
