The landscape was varied and striking and we made quick work of the mostly downhill, 10 km stretch of track. If the stunning scenery along this leg of the Laugavegu trail is any indication of what hikers encounter on the other 45 km, we'll have to figure out a way to do another leg of the route next time we visit Iceland.
