Blizzard on Popular Highland Hiking Trail in Iceland

A full-blown snowstorm raged by Hrafntinnusker, one of the stops on the popular hiking trail Laugavegur between Landmannalaugar and Thórsmörk in Iceland’s southern highlands, early on Monday morning.

When hikers woke up on Monday, the ground had turned completely white, Morgunbladid reports.

The Iceland Touring Association (FÍ), which has a cabin on Hrafntinnusker, warned hikers about the weather through its website, emphasizing the importance of being well-prepared.

FÍ also recommended that hikers check the weather forecast and dress accordingly before they head off to the mountains.

Apparently fall has arrived in Iceland with full force.
