Your day begins at the N1 gas station in Hvolsvollur, where you will meet your guide. You can alternatively arrange pick-up from the local area. They’ll help you board their spacious, super jeep before whisking you through the beautiful landscapes of the South Coast on your way to Landmannalaugar.

You’ll pass volcanoes, mountains, and endless lava fields as you enter the otherworldly terrain of the Highlands. Your journey will get increasingly enjoyable as you move from paved roads to bumpy gravel paths and embark on several river crossings.
Before getting to your destination, you’ll make a stop at a lava cave named Landmannahellir. This fascinating formation creeps beneath a volcanic peak, and you’ll be able to enter its mouth for a better perspective on its formation. Your guide will tell you how these phenomena were created, what they were used for historically, and their role in Icelandic folklore.
After stretching your legs here, you will continue into Landmannalaugar and find yourself quickly amazed by its beauty. It boasts vividly colored rhyolite mountains, abundant geothermal areas, dramatic craters, and incredible views over the surrounding area. Once you arrive, you’ll have two options of what to do.
Firstly, you could head straight to the natural hot springs, change into your swimsuit, and dip into the healing, warm waters. There are few experiences as enjoyable as basking in pure bliss while surrounded by such spectacular nature. Alternatively, you could go on a stroll through the wilderness to seek out beautiful attractions just off the beaten track.
After your time at Landmannalaugar, you’ll board the super jeep and begin your return journey. You still have several stops ahead, however. You’ll come to Hnausapollur, an enormous explosion crater you can hike up to the rim of; the scale and coloration of this feature make it unforgettable. Following this, you’ll reach Thjofafoss, a breathtaking waterfall renowned for its bright blue shades.
