The landscapes of Landmannalaugar are incredibly diverse, ranging from the black lava of the Laugahraun lava field to Mt. Brennisteinsalda, multicolored by sulfur, steaming hot springs, green moss, and red iron.
Thanks to its location on top of a volcanic plateau, the area was formed by volcanic activity and subsequent erosion. Over time, erosion has drastically shaped the landscapes, carving out the intense valleys and canyons that characterize the area today. This has resulted in a variety of rock formations, colors and textures, which are all incredibly unique.
In front of Brennisteinsalda, there is a field of obsidian, as well as a nearby Bláhnúkur volcano, featuring stunning black and blue sides. Landmannalaugar presents a unique color flow that is almost painting-like - a wonderful setting for a day hike in Iceland.
This secluded area has been a favorite among adventure seekers for years, and now you have the chance to visit this magnificent place with our Landmannalaugar hiking tour.
