Visit the Highlands of Fjallabak and explore the hidden wonders of Landmannalaugar, one of the most beautiful regions in Iceland. The untouched nature, geothermal energy, colourful mountains, canyons and hot springs will definitely stay in your memory for long.

Landmannalaugar is known for its natural geothermal hot springs and stunning surrounding landscape. Located in the southern part of the stunning Icelandic Highlands—and having the active volcano, Hekla, in its neighbourhood—it is one of Iceland's most unique destinations. The area is a must-see for all who truly appreciate the beauty of nature.

After arrival to Landmannalaugar, you will set off on a four-hour hike through strangely sprawling lava fields of Laugahraun, through Vondugil canyon, and the impressively saturated Brennisteinsalda, a mountain known to be highly characteristic for the area due to its multicoloured peak. 

As you travel back down through Grænagil canyon, you'll get to see its carved characteristics as a result of a geodynamic activity of mountains, volcanoes, and glacial rivers. The total hiking distance in the beautiful nature of Landmannalaugar will be approximately 8-10 km (5-6 mi).

If time and weather conditions permit, you will also climb on Bláhnúkur. This 60,000-year-old volcano with panoramic views over Landmannalaugar Valley is the ultimate addition to this great tour.

Afterward, you can enjoy a relaxing bath in the natural hot pool, where hot and cold water flows out from beneath Laugahraun, so please remember to take swimwear and a towel with you. While relaxing in the very well known natural hot pool you can enjoy the spectacular view of Landmannalaugar, truly a phenomenal place!
