Explore the Landmannalaugar geothermal area on this amazing super jeep day tour. Landmannalaugar is a remote and rugged volcanic landscape of surreal colours. As it sits atop the Mid Atlantic Ridge, natural hot springs abound. This tour is for anyone who wants to escape into the heart of Iceland’s southern highlands to experience its captivating and otherworldly landscapes.
Departing from the southern town of Hvolsvöllur, you'll make your way to Landmannalaugar, located in the Fjallabak Nature Reserve in the highlands. This area is known for its dramatic rhyolite mountains, bubbling springs and otherworldly crater lakes.
On your way to Landmannalaugar, you'll drive rough mountain roads (F-roads) not passable by normal buses and cars. However, you'll be on a specially adapted super jeep, built to handle rough terrain like this and cross un-bridged rivers.
The drive to Landmannalaugar is beautiful. First, you'll drive around the base of Hekla, one of the most active volcanoes in Europe. Don't worry, volcanoes in Iceland are highly monitored. The route then takes you through captivating, contorted lava fields that have emerged from a myriad of different craters and fissures over the centuries.
You'll travel with a local guide who is more than happy to show you some hidden spots and tell you about local traditions and folklore. Perhaps they will share with you an old Icelandic elf story or two.
Once in Landmannalaugar, you will have the possibility of doing an easy hike through the Laugarhraun lava field before enjoying a relaxing soak in a natural hot spring. Relaxing and unwinding in the hot water in otherworldly surroundings while breathing in fresh mountain air is a truly unique experience. Just remember to bring your swimwear!
