What You Can Expect

Landmannalauger Day Trip from Reykjavik

Landmannalaugar, Iceland

Leaving Reykjavik you will head to the geothermal area of Landmannalauger, famous for its incredible natural beauty and often called "The Pearl of the Central Highlands".

Travel into the highlands through Pjorsardalur valley and visit Hjalparfoss waterfall. Landmannalauger's colorful mountains are due to centuries of volcanic activity in the area. The picturesque natural landscape in this raw climate is simply breathtaking. While there, you'll enjoy a relaxing bath in a natural warm pool which is created where many hot and cold springs mix together.

Your tour continues toward the west and past Iceland's most infamous and active volcano, Hekla, which during the Middle Ages was believed to be the gateway to Hell. The volcano has had frequent eruptions in the past years and has left thick layers of ash and pumice over the landscape. Return to Reykjavik over Hellisheidi Mountain Heath.

Very interesting! The huge monster wheel truck drove us there as its a very bumpy n rocky road through the central highlands... It's miles of lava land n looks like u r at Mars! Landmannalauger is heaven when u get there n u hike up to a little glacier but the view is spectacular! amazing waterfall

4 seasons in a day but the right season for the right time (sunny when one needed to walk). Great commentary by the guide - sorry I cannot repeat his Icelandic name but similar to breitel.

We loved this tour. The landscape and scenery were outstanding. It is well worth the long day. Go well prepared with clothing for all weather and pack a lunch as well as snacks. Great tour !

We loved this day trip........got to go hiking a little and have picnic lunch. You would swear you were on the moon. Then to top it off we hit the natural hot springs before our trip home. Be sure to bring bathing suit and hiking boots for this day trip. We thoroughly enjoyed this trip even though it was a long day! Our guide, Linda, was the best! She explained everything about what we were seeing and the history behind it. Only thing you should know is the bus goes over really rough roads (if you can even call them that).......so be prepared for very very bumpy ride for quite some time.

excellent - well worth it. The only thing I would recommend is to clearly highlight in the tour description that if you purchase this trip you need to pack lunch and a bathing suit!
