Hiking for about 4 days, staying in Mountain Huts, then 5 day road trip

  A couple visited Iceland in August 2017

“We are interested in hiking for about 4 days maybe the landmannalaugar to skogafoss waterfall and staying in mountain huts. Not sure the difference between landmannalaugar and laugavegur hike?? Is it worth going all the way to skogafoss waterfall or would it be just as good or better to just go to Thorsmork then do a trip to the north side of Iceland: akureyri, godafoss etc. We can carry our own backpacks but would prefer to stay in mountain huts due to the chance of rain. We are experienced and strong hikers, we don't really need a guide but they are always very informative and nice to have We usually have done private treks but would be ok with a small group. Then we would like to spend some time driving maybe to the northern area of Iceland. Please help us make this an epic trip! We would have approx 9 days”
