Landmannalaugar tour – in a comfortable 4x4 - A memorable trip to a unique part of Iceland.
Enjoy a tour to Landmannalaugar in a Comfortable 4×4
Landmannalaugar is a region forged by different and compelling geological
elements, such as extensive lava fields and the multi-coloured rhyolite
Awash in a rainbow of colours, the mountains fade from pink to brown and green, with splashes of yellow, blue, purple and black in between.
This trip starts in Reykjavík and the first 150 km take us through idyllic
Icelandic farmland. But from there it starts to get more interesting.
Our journey takes us through a desert like volcanic landscape for more than 30km before we reach Landmannalaugar. Powerful geysers and glacial
streams all add to the unique beauty of this fascinating place.
Crossing rivers and driving on coarse gravel roads on our way to
Landmannalaugar will give us an experience to remember. We will make a stop at
Lake Ljótipollur, formed in 1477 and now filled with a cobalt-blue deep lake. We also stop at lake Frostastaðavatn, before we reach our main destination.
We will stop for 2-3 hours in Landmannalaugar and take a beautiful hike or go for swim at a natural hot spring nearby. After about an hour’s hike we can unwind in a natural pool or explore the territory on our own before we head back.
On our way back we will take the Dómadalur route that takes us through lava
fields and between high mountains, there are lots of rivers we have
to ford and we will see some magnificient waterfalls.
Little Extra Touch – We will add some local touch and different places to visit depending on time, weather and mood.
