Landmannalaugar is located in the southern parts of the stunning Icelandic Highlands. This remote location was originally where the settlers used to bath when making their way over the land. In more recent years it has been a favorite among adventure seeking Icelanders and now you have a chance to visit this extraordinary place.
Landmannalaugar is a very geothermally active and as a result the area is surrounded by incredibly colorful mountains, there is steam rising from the ground in multiple places and a lava field covers a great part. Right under the Laugahraun, lava field is a wonderful natural hot pool that is popular for bathing after a good day of hiking.
After a scenic drive from Reykjavík you will start your hiking adventure from the main hut in Landmannalaugar and take off on a hiking adventure for about four hours. The total hiking distance is approximately 8-10 km, stunning from start to end. The route goes over Laugahraun lava field, through Vondugil canyon and up to Mt. Brennisteinsalda a multicolored peak that is highly characteristic for the area. On the way down you will walk down Graenagil gorge, called Green Gorge in Icelandic because of the dominant green color of rhyolite in the area. If time allows, we will summit the memorable Blahnukur Volcano before soaking in the hot pool in Landmannalaugar all whilst breathing in the breathtaking surroundings of this phenomenal place!
