Have been planning to walk Landmannalaugar with Discover the world travel company this August, but likely to conflict with starting my new job, so am thinking of postponing until next year.
If it happens that there is a delay in my starting this job I am thinking of a last minute flight to Iceland and touring the sites independently. Guest houses seem cheap and the main attractions appear well marked and signposted. The geysers and waterfalls do seem packed with tourists when checking out videos. As a keen walker am I likely to be disappointed by the alternative option or can I still get away from the crowds? Recommended short walks, and picturesque guest houses appreciated. Also, views on any one who has done an organised walking trip to Landmannalaugar a bonus. Thanks
