The Laugavegur is one of the big walks. It is the most famous trek in Iceland and crosses other worldly landscapes formed by recent volcanos. I did it from north to south and it runs over 80km from Landmannalauger via Thorsmork to Skogar on the coast. I started on the 15 June, the first day the bus ran to Landmannalaugar. I hadn’t booked the huts as I didn’t know whether I’d make it. So I took camping gear. The scenery is sensational and unlike anywhere I’d been before. At this time of the year there is still a lot of snow. I was alone much of the time, having started early in the year. There were three river crossings in flood and I needed to strip and take care. You pass through vivid rhyolite mountains, climb snow slopes, cross ash deserts, rift canyons and glacial streams. There are wild flowers, sweet birch and the cries of redshank and ptarmigan.

Move over traditional sightseeing, throngs of visitors, and tourist traps! Explore Europe on Foot gives travelers an alternative way to discover Europe. A hiking vacation offers countless rewards: the time to admire the tidiness of a village farm, soak in the rugged alpine view from a rocky perch, and absorb a country through the smells of its landscape and encounters with locals. Explore Europe on Foot is a complete guide to conceptualizing, planning, and executing the slow-travel hike (or hikes!) of a lifetime. Author Cassandra Overby tells you how you can spend all, or even just part, of your vacation enjoying scenery, small towns, and cultural experiences most travelers miss—all without carrying a big backpack. This guide offers all the nuts and bolts you need: how to choose a route that is right for you, how to plan, what to pack, what to expect, how to find accommodations and food, how to deal with challenges along the way, and so much more. These aren’t wilderness backpacking trips, but rather a wide range of town-to-town walks that offer the opportunity to have an authentic, affordable, restorative vacation. Travelers will also appreciate overviews of fifteen long-distance trails in Belgium, France, Italy, Germany, Great Britain, Morocco, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, and Turkey, with itineraries that range from one to fifteen days. For those unwilling to go all-in, Cassandra also offers tips on incorporating day-hike outings into a more traditional vacation. The focus is on how to craft that more immersive vacation so users of the guide will be able to apply what they learn to their own dream destinations. 15 Handpicked Walks include: Rota Vicentina, Portugal English Way, Spain Mont Saint-Michel, France Alsace Wine Route, France Tour du Mont Blanc, France and Italy Cinque Terre 2.0, Italy Lycian Way, Turkey Alpine Pass Route, Switzerland King Ludwig’s Way, Germany The Moselle, Germany The Ardennes, Luxembourg and Belgium The Lake District, England, UK West Highland Way, Scotland, UK Laugavegur Trek, Iceland The Sahara Desert, Morocco

This "smart" travel guide is about magical LANDMANNALAUGAR rainbow-like colorful mountains in ICELAND, located in the heart of Highlands. The book describes in detail 12 half- and full day hikes, plus, the most famous multiday trekking hikes - Laugavegur Trail (52 km) and Fimmvörðuháls Trail (26 km). It contains 120 GPS coordinates of important to know places in ICELAND and in LANDMANNALAUGAR, 80 website links, covering: best viewpoints, campsites, mountain huts with detailed info and prices, hiking trails around, geology of the place and 3 maps. The book first describes how to get to ICELAND with a ferry from Denmark or by air, then, how to commute within ICELAND with a bus, a rented car or hitchhiking, after that I give the most important advice how to survive as adventurous hiker, how to safely do multiday trekking in dangerous Highlands, and then finally, I review in detail hiking trails with important sights around. This is a unique and the most complete "smart" travel guide, which I made, at first, to be solely used in my own, after buying so many travel guides and still feeling - they aren't good enough for my adventures to explore wilderness as a biologist and wildlife/travel photographer. I was missing it during my 4 expeditions in ICELAND, 2015-2018, otherwise, I would be much more efficient as a landscape/wildlife photographer and traveler. This is my 5th book in the "wilderness explorer" series, and the second about ICELAND. First three travel guides were about PATAGONIA (1st book Peninsula Valdes Nature Reserve, 2nd Torres del Paine National Park, and 3rd Tierra del Fuego Land).The book can be equally useful for "budget" adventure seekers, solo/group travelers, in "fast & easy" style with a rented car/campers or travel agency users as well as for paid wildlife and travel/landscape photographers on a mission. I hope the book will be a good "practical tool", an all-to-know set of guidebooks for you (for me as well), while you are exploring the world with responsible mind and open heart as a truly nature lover.
