Landmannalaugar Super Jeep Tour With Pickup from Reykjavik
Discover one of Iceland's natural gems, the Landmannalaugar geothermal area, on this luxurious super jeep tour. See stunning waterfalls and otherworldly crater lakes before taking a dip in a naturally heated pool. This tour shouldn’t be missed by anyone wanting to experience the best of Icelandic nature while traveling in comfort and style.
Landmannalaugar is a vast area of unique beauty, located in the heart of Iceland’s southern highlands. Nestled between the jet-black Laugahraun lava field, Landmannalaugar is made up of windswept rhyolite mountains, a type of volcanic rock that creates a full spectrum of dazzling color on the mountainside.
Your adventure starts in Reykjavík, where you will be picked up in the morning by a super jeep. This large and luxurious vehicle is specially built to go off the beaten track, to areas not accessible by normal buses, so you will get an exclusive and unique experience as you traverse the highlands of Iceland.
Your first stop of the day will be in Þjórsárdalur valley where you will find Hjálparfoss waterfall. Situated in the lava field north of the stratovolcano Hekla, this is a twin cascade where two streams from the river Fossá merge in the basin of the waterfall.
Traveling from the beautiful waterfall, you’ll stop at two scenic lakes before you reach Landmannalaugar. The first lake is Ljótipollur, a crater lake with high banks in an unbelievable shade of red that contrast with the azure water. The second is Frostaðavatn lake, a wide and beautiful lake popular among photographers around the world.
The rhyolite mountains at Landmannalaugar appear in shades of red, pink, green and golden yellow, bestowing an otherworldly aspect upon the whole area. You will get a chance to hike up one of the area’s many trails before taking a dip in the naturally heated geothermal pool to relax after a day of traveling.
Before you head back to the city, you will make a quick stop in Dómadalur valley where you will find the waterfall Þjófafoss. You will be thankful for the super jeep as it is one of the few vehicles that can easily access the route to this gorgeous waterfall. You will also visit the magnificent volcano Hekla, one of Iceland’s most active volcanoes.
