Description

Explore the stunning scenery of the Icelandic Highlands and hike across a lava field in Landmannalaugar by booking this incredible 12-hour excursion. Those eager to have an exciting adventure in the wilderness should book this private tour now.

Your day starts when your driver picks you up in a jeep from your accommodation in Reykjavik. You'll meet the expert, English-speaking guide leading you on the tour and embark on your adventure.

This excursion is private and only for you and your party. There's no need to wait for other guests, and you'll have plenty of time to chat with your guide. The tour can be adapted to meet the needs of your group.

When you're ready, climb aboard the jeep and get comfortable. The journey to the Icelandic Highlands is beautiful. You'll travel on winding gravel roads through untouched landscapes.

The first stop is the Hjalparfoss waterfall, whose name translates to "Helping Falls." Fed by the glacial waters of the Thjorsa river, it plunges gracefully over two distinct ledges, creating a mesmerizing sight for visitors. Picturesque scenery, including moss-covered rocks and lush vegetation, surrounds the waterfall.

Next, it's on to Landmannalaugar. Nestled in the Icelandic Highlands, Landmannalaugar is a geothermal wonderland renowned for its gorgeous landscapes and natural hot springs.

Accessible only by four-wheel drive vehicles or hiking trails, it's a haven for outdoor enthusiasts seeking adventure. The colorful rhyolite mountains, bubbling hot springs, and lava fields create a surreal backdrop for camping, hiking, and photography.

Visitors to Landmannalaugar love its unique geological features and opportunities for exploration in Iceland's untamed wilderness.

Your guide will lead you and your group on a hike through a lava field created during an eruption in 1477. Around you, you'll see multi-colored rhyolite mountains, including the impressive Brennisteinsalda volcano.

The word "Brennisteinsalda" means "Sulphur Hill," and it's called this because of its yellow, orange, and red slopes. The colors come from mineral deposits and geothermal activity. It's a breathtaking place and one of the most popular hiking destinations in Landmannalaugar.

After the hike, you can unwind in one of the hot springs that the area is famous for. The warm waters here will help rejuvenate you, and you can relax while taking the surrounding landscapes.

At the end of the trip, the driver will take you back to your accommodation in Reykjavik.
