Just a full day is spectacular scenery.
A great funny guide.
The hike was solid but good fun.
The colors of the mountains have to be seen to be believed
Very beautiful, when it rains it rains sideways wear waterproof and warm clothes. If you have a bad back the bus ride will be painful
We had a great tour guide and loved learning about and seeing all the amazing sites!
Fantastic Tour! We had 5 day trips during our stay in Iceland and this one was the best! Landmannalaugar is definitely the most amazing a MUST-SEE! place in Iceland and we enjoyed the 4 hours we had there so much! Even the long road to Landmannalaugar was enjoyable, wonderful landscapes and in some places the surface was just like on the moon! You have to see this!
Landmannalauger is just beautiful with the rhyolite mountains and several hiking trails. One can also take a dip in the hot water, though we preferred to hike around. It would have been nice if the guide could have organized the hike in a better manner. She took off without any announcement and we couldn't follow the group. But that was probably a good thing because we set off on our own and explored this region. I had been wanting to visit this place since a couple of years now and it did not disappoint in any way!
A very long day but well worth it, as most day trips are. You travel east to the highlands of Iceland for the main part of the tour, a nice hike that takes you through varying scenery. It's not a complicated hike but can be strenuous at times, however you can go at your own pace. You'll pass colorful hills, moss covered lava mounds, mountains in the distance and geothermal active areas with shades of red and orange in the hot ground. Other stops on the tour include waterfalls and a lake for photos. All in all a great day.
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!

This was the best tour I have done in Iceland! The mountain range is just incredible, it is a must do tour!
It was a very bumpy ride but so worth it. Astounding scenery. the hot spring in the nook of the mountains was the highlight of the trip.

A very nice trip if you want to get a glimpse of the highlands in Iceland and want to go hiking or take a plunge in the hot pools.
It was as the guide himself said a strange day. As a teacher I sympathised with him: a group of Chinese girls talked over him during his attempts to explain what we were seeing and he lost his temper - quite justifiably. Unfortinately he appeared to blame everyone on the bus when everyone else was actually listening and interested - and were as annoyed by the disrespect shown by the girls as he was. It reminded me of the awkwardness fekt when everyone is made to feel guilty because of one person's misdemeanours. Apart from that the trip packs in a lot: 2 waterfalls, a boat trip on the ice lagoon pretty cool, the black volcanic beach at Vik and a couple of comfort stops. The ice lagoon is the obvious highlight and it is quite a long drive to get there so you'll need to be ready for a 7am start and a 9.30-10pm return to Reykjavik.
A long way to go on a day trip. Recommend staying here 1-2 nights, and catching another bus back.
Landmannalauger is beautiful, but the company provided very poor service:
- Despite Viator contacting them several times on my behalf, they did not get back to me regarding confirmation of pick-up location and time until a day before the trip.
- The driver was experienced, but the tour bus was very old and definitely not the right vehicle for dirt roads. Everyone else in the area traveled by Jeep or off-road bus. The trip was therefore very bumpy and at times I did not feel safe.
- In the National Park, the driver sent us off on a hike (he said that he could not join us as he recently had a knee operation). But the directions he gave us were very poor and we got lost. As a result, we did not find the path and had to find our own way cross country through the lava fields. I am an experienced hiker but despite that fact found this extremely dangerous.
I'm in Iceland often but because this trip was clearly not worth the money I paid for it I will not book any more tours with this provider.
