Laugavegur/Landmannalaugar Trek, Iceland
Been there done that? Not likely something you would say about a trek to Iceland's most popular trail the Laugavegur or as it is sometimes known the Landmannalaugar Trek.

Our guides pointed out landscapes that weren't there when they started hiking the trial. It's all "under construction" with the signs of change in bubbling thermal streams, sulfur laden ponds leaching from the ground, and numerous overdue volcanos littering the landscape.
