Embark on a super jeep adventure, hike through the spectacular highlands, and bask in geothermal waters surrounded by untouched wilderness with this thrilling tour to Landmannalaugar from Hella. Those driving themselves in Iceland looking to take an unforgettable excursion during their travels will find this a perfect choice.
You’ll meet your local guide for this excursion in the village of Hella in south Iceland; whether you are exploring the Golden Circle, South Coast, or Ring Road, this is easy to get to. Here, you’ll leave your vehicle and board a modified one perfectly altered to handle the harsh terrain of the Highlands and set off into some spectacular landscapes.
Though Landmannalaugar is your destination, you’ll stop first at two contrasting sites. At the foot of the notorious volcano, Hella, where the River Ranga runs, you’ll discover a blooming oasis unlike anything you imagined possible in Iceland. Near Reynisfjara beach, meanwhile, you’ll wander into the lunar landscapes of a barren valley, defined by its endless black sands.
Once you continue your journey, you’ll find reaching the Highland reserve an absolute pleasure; the roads into the interior are very bumpy and sometimes require river crossings to complete. Once you get there, you’ll step out into another world of otherworldly beauty and have several hours to explore.
One option is to stick with your guide, who will be leading a two-hour hike through the spectacular area to reach the magnificent crater of Brennisteinsalda; the views from here are truly mind-blowing. Alternatively, you can explore, marvel over, and photograph the rhyolite mountains, lava landscapes, and geothermal areas yourself. A third choice is to head straight to the hot springs and relax among some of the most incredible wilderness imaginable.
Note, however, that even if you choose to hike, you’ll still have time to enjoy a revitalizing dip here.
After several hours enjoy the wonders of Landmannalaugar in the highlands of Iceland, you’ll return to your vehicle. The adventure doesn’t finish quite yet, however; you’ll detour first to another enormous crater, Hnausapollur, for an extra exploration before heading back to Hella.
Spend a day of your holiday in Iceland exploring the highlands and bathing in natural hot springs with this incredible tour to Landmannalaugar. Check availability by choosing a date.
