The Highlands of Iceland are only accessible during the summer months, and only to 4x4 vehicles.

Come aboard this intrepid day tour to the delightful Landmannalaugar Valley, found in the Highlands of Iceland. This is the perfect tour choice for those travellers seeking to experience the very best of Iceland's nature, as well as those who are looking to hike and bathe in hot pools during their time here.

Landmannalaugar translates as 'the pools of the people', alluding to the many geothermal hot springs that dot the valley. These pools have been used for respite and warmth by travellers for centuries; quite frankly, there could hardly be a more authentic Icelandic experience than this. 

To begin your day of adventure in the Landmannalaugar Oasis, you will be picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavík and driven directly along the sublime South Coast toward Þjórsádalur Valley. This is your first stop of the day; Hjálparfoss, one of the country's most picturesque and charming waterfalls. The surrounding landscape is equally photogenic, an extraordinary mixture of sandy lava fields, birch woods, rivers and bizarre rock formations. 

In no time, you will arrive at your second stop, the "ugly puddle", Ljótipollur. Don't let the name put you off; this explosion crater lake is beyond stunning, it's scarlet red colouring alone being enough to sway most to snap a quick photograph.

Afterward, you will head into the kaleidoscopic, rhyolite mountains of Landmannalaugar. Sit back and relax as the colours and the scenery washes over you. You will be quick to understand why Landmannalaugar is a favourite amongst hikers, given the wild, open expanse and presence of the world-famous Laugavegur trek. In Landmannalaugar, you have an opportunity to bathe in the natural hot springs of the Landmannalaugar oasis or take a short stroll around the area. Be sure to bring your swimsuit and a towel if you’re interested in a geothermal bath.

From the warm pools of Landmannalaugar, you will make your way to the Queen of active Icelandic volcanoes, Mount Hekla. Using a specially modified jeep, your driver will climb to a height of 950 meters up the side of the volcano, from where you can enjoy the astounding views in all directions.

As this is a long day, it might be possible to see the Northern lights at the end of the tour during the darkest of winter days. Once your time on the mountain is over, you will begin to make the return journey back to your accommodation.
