What to expect?


  • The tour starts by the Reykjavík tourist info at the City Hall which is within walking distance of most hotels and guesthouses in central Reykjavík. After introductions, we board the scheduled bus that takes us to Landmannalaugar. From Reykjavik we drive inland through the beautiful Thjórsárdalur valley, named after the river Thjórsá and the longest river in Iceland, towards Hekla Volcano. Passing extensive lava fields from previous eruptions we approach the Landmannalaugar area with its amazing peaks. After our lunch, we will set on 10 km hike to ill-named Ljótipollur (Ugly Puddle) Lake qualified among 42 of the World´s Most Beautiful Crater Lakes. An incredible red crater filled with bright -blue water and real eye-candy. And in the evening you will enjoy a relaxing bath moment at the natural steaming hot spring bath.


  • Today we will hike till Suðurnámur, 200 000 years old mountain reach in liparit mineral. On the way up to the Suðurhámur, you will enjoy numbers of ravines and colorful sights of the area and on its top a dramatic landscape on the Landmannalaugar´s empire, Kirkjufellið, Laugahraun lava, Bláhnúkur volcano or Brennisteinsalda, the most colorful mountain in Iceland.


  • After our breakfast buffet, we will continue on 3,30 hours adventure on Bláhnúkur, 60000 years old volcano, with its vast and bluish colored body. A hiking trail leads up to the top of the mountain from which, in good conditions, five glaciers are visible. Bláhnukur is one of the best places for panoramic Landmannalaugar´s landscape photography. On top of the mountain, you will easily appreciate the powerful effect of the geodynamic activity on the landscape and your guide will explain to you about it.
