We tried to see how much we could do in Iceland including the infamous Laugavegur trail, and I think we managed to do a good job! I had the time of my life.

Super expensive :(
Q & A
How was the food?
This coffee place in Reykjavik was really good but I don't know what it was called. Everyone knows about it though so you just have to ask around.
What tips would you give a friend?
Keep in mind that the Laugavegur trail, Reykjavík, the dehydrated meals you have to bring for the hike and Iceland in general is VERY expensive. Buy as much as you can in your own country, especially the food for the hike.
The best packing tips are on the websites for the trail, one tip I can give you is to bring cheese spread on the hike, or peanut butter. This shit doesn't go bad, bring some crackers and load them.
Yes, THE WEATHER! The weather is always bad in Iceland, rain and storm and clouds all day. But we were very lucky, we had no rain, and a lot of sun. Be prepared for some nasty weather.
Do mind that you need to book a place in order to do the Laugavegur trail! They don’t want it to be too crowded so they only let a certain amount of people in each summer. Booking a tour and/or transportation has nothing to do with this, you need to do that yourself too.
