Hiking an extension of Iceland's famous Laugavegur Trail

Tue, 2019-05-28

We give an account of a three-day, 78-kilometer trek along an extension of the Laugavegur trail starting in Skogar on the southern coast and heading inland to Landmannalaugar, the isolated home of well-known thermal pools. The trail covers barren rock mountains, lush green hills with waterfalls, and glaciers, and is only open at the peak of summer due to snow pack. Good planning is essential to a happy hike --  we'll share details of our trek and tips for planning your own. (Spoiler: the only ways in or out of Landmannalaugar are on foot and in a semi-aquatic vehicle!)


The month meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month in the planetarium of the Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC)  2600 Canyon Rd, Los Alamos, NM 87544

Social at 6:45.  Reports of recent and upcoming trips at 7:05pm.   Program to follow.

Visitors are always welcome!  Free refreshments!
