Your 13-hour day begins with meeting your group and guide in central Reykjavik. Today’s transportation is a special highland four-by-four bus that can easily navigate the rugged roads notorious in the region. 

After a couple of hours of relaxing on the comfortable bus with complimentary Wi-Fi, you will arrive at your first destination. The Hjalparfoss waterfall is located in the Thjorsardalur valley and is a serene location where the Fossa and Thjorsa rivers meet. 

Nearby, the impressive Haifoss waterfall and its smaller neighbor, Granni waterfall, are beautiful, off-the-beaten-track spots where you won’t have to worry about crowds. Haifoss is an incredible 400 feet (122 meters) tall, making it the fourth tallest waterfall in Iceland.

The Hnausapollur volcanic crater is another beautiful spot that won’t have many crowds. This crater formed over 1200 years ago during the eruptions of two nearby volcanoes, leaving behind this eye-catching caldera with a turquoise blue lake at the bottom. 

Upon entering the Landmannalaugar valley, you will be amazed by the incredible beauty surrounding you. This area is world-famous among hiking enthusiasts because of its dramatic and varied landscapes, numerous hot springs, and well-loved multi-day hiking trails like the Laugavegur trail connecting Landmannalaugar and Thorsmork. 

Landmannalaugar is one of the best places to experience the authentic wildness of Iceland’s Highlands. The colorful mountains, made of a type of rock that comes in shades of red, pink, green, blue, and yellow, are a sight you will remember for a lifetime.

Experience the magic of a hiking Landmannalaugar as your guide leads you on a 1.5 to two-hour trek through the hills. This easy-to-moderate hike rewards you with stunning views and endless photo opportunities. 

After your hike, a soak in the natural Landmannalaugar hot springs is ideal for relaxing. The 104-degree Fahrenheit (40 degrees celsius) pool is the perfect temperature and provides numerous health benefits. Be sure to bring a towel and your swimsuit! 

Once you complete this relaxing bathing experience, it is time to board your highland bus and head back to Reykjavik. You will arrive in the city in time for a late dinner where you can reminisce on your fantastic day.
