Experience

Highlights
  • Bathe in a geothermal spring in the Landmannalauger mountains
  • Gaze in awe at Hekla, one of Iceland's active volcanoes, once believed to be the gateway to hell
  • Explore landscapes covered in layers of volcanic ash in the valley of the Thjorsa River
Full description
Journey through the beautiful countryside of Southern Iceland and into the highlands through Þjórsárdalur valley and visit Hjálparfoss waterfall.

Depart from Reykjavik and head to the Landmannalaugar geothermal area, often referred to as “The Pearl of the Central Highlands.”

Landmannalaugar’s colorful mountains are formed by centuries of volcanic activity in the area and the picturesque natural landscape in this raw climate is simply breathtaking. Enjoy a relaxing bath in a natural warm pool which was created by the combination of the area's hot and cold springs, or take a leisurely hike in the surrounding rhyolite mountain paths.

The tour continues west and past Iceland’s most infamous and active volcano, Hekla, which was believed to be the gateway to hell during the Middle Ages. The volcano has had frequent eruptions in the past years and has left thick layers of ash and pumice over the landscape.

After exploring Iceland's unique volcanic landscapes, return to Reykjavík over Hellisheiði Mountain heath.
