Landmannalaugar | A Day Tour Into The Heart of Iceland's Wilderness

Based on 1 traveller reviews

Don’t miss your chance to join this fantastic day tour into the heart of the Icelandic wilderness. Landmannalaugar is one of the most popular travel destinations in Iceland, renowned for its hiking trails, soothing hot springs and multicoloured rhyolite mountains.

The area is made up of stark contrasts and untouched beauty and is part of the sublime Fjallabak Nature Reserve.

You begin your journey from Reykjavík, travelling by bus through an oasis of traditional southern farmlands, even passing by the base of the colossal Mount Hekla.

Hekla last erupted in 2000 and continues to show signs of future eruptions. Don’t worry though, you’re only passing by! Handy with your audio guide, you will learn more information about Hekla and other interesting sights along the way.

Before you enter the wilderness, you will first have to transfer over to a specially equipped mountain vehicle. You will then drive deep into an untouched paradise. As you traverse the back country roads, you will be privy to a wide breadth of beauty; ancient mountains lakes, dried lava fields and sweeping valleys.

More than that, you will be truly captivated by the colours of Landmannalaugar’s geography. The igneous volcanic rock creates spectacular spectrums displayed along the mountain sides, almost as though as an ancient giant painted the landscape in fantastic reds, yellows and greens.

Do not to miss your chance of exploring the picturesque hills of Landmannalaugar, and you too can experience the natural treasures hidden within the highlands. Check booking availability by choosing a date.

We took this tour because the difficult level is easy . The length of the trail was 4.3 km, the staff took us that it would take us max 1.5 hour. The problem was that nobody warned us that we needed to walk on the melting ice and between rocks which delayed the walk. Finally, we missed the coach when we finished the walk. Lucky, there was another coach there and the driver called our driver to stop and took us to catch the bus. And the audio system was not working in the morning but fixed when the way back. Other than that, this tour was good and the scene was excellent.
