Landmannalaugar is geothermally active, a fact that is displayed with incredibly colorful mountains, steam rising from the ground, and of course the natural hot pool that is popular for bathing.
Your hiking adventure will start from the main hut in Landmannalaugar and take off for about four-hours where you will hike around this gorgeous place. The total hiking distance is approximately 11-15 km. The route goes over Laugahraun lava field, through Vondugil canyon and up to Mt. Brennisteinsalda a multicolored peak that is highly characteristic for the are. 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.

“Day Hike to Landmannalaugar”
Brilliant day had with artic adventures. Both tour guides were informative and sound. Our day tour guide was Inga and she was great. The hike wasn’t too strenuous but unless you have proper gear renting boots and waterproofs is required. It was raining and snowing and the luminous orange overalls I got were more than handy. We also got to bathe in the natural hotspring at the base camp which was handy after the hike! The journey from Reykjavik is about 3.5 hours each way so if I was to go again I would do the multi day tour but for a day trip it is still worth the travelling times as most of it is through the highlands!
