Foto Friday – The Laugavegur Trail

Following stone cairns for guidance I found myself trekking in a small team across a snowy plateaux in southern Iceland in 2013.

The whole team found the going to be way tougher than we’d expected for even though it was early July there was still a load of persistent deep snow left on the ground which made the going pretty hard.

The trek took five days to complete and took me from Landmannalaugar geothermal springs to the Þórsmörk nature reserve.
