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

The landmannalauger trip was my favourite, the mountains are beautiful, the gorge with all the waterfalls was spectacular and the natural hot spring was another highlight of my Iceland trip. I wish there was more time to hike in the mountains and swim in the spring. We had to cut our hike short as otherwise we would not have had enough time to enjoy the water. I would love to come back to visit again!

Pickup went well! On time and without problems. The tour was really great. Breathtaking landscapes. Hike was 1.5-2 and also easy for lazy to do. But very beautiful! The hot spring was of course the best! Our driver was very friendly! Knew a lot. And could even speak German! I would book the tour again and again and can only recommend it
