This tour was absolutely amazing. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided lots of information but didn't just bog us down with pointless information. My only complaint was the bus that came to pick us up from the hotel was late and still had several stops to make. We were then late to the bus terminal and the tour actually left without us. Thankfully, another bus driver called our tour guide and arranged from him to pull over on the side of the road and wait while a bus picked us up. The original bus driver that picked us up from the hotel should have communicated with the terminal staff that our bus was going to be late and not to leave without us.

Leaving from Reykjavík, this Landmannalaugar tour takes you up to the interior highlands of Iceland to Landmannalaugar, often referred to as “The Pearl of the Central Highlands”.

You will journey through the beautiful countryside and farmlands of southern Iceland into Þjórsárdalur valley, where you can explore the picturesque Hjálparfoss waterfall and surroundings.

Proceeding from Hjálparfoss waterfall, the tour takes you into the highlands of Iceland past lakes and rivers up to Landmannalaugar area which is one of Iceland‘s grandest and most photographed landmarks. On the way we will stop to look at the magnificent Hnausapollur crater lake.

Characterized as multicoloured Ryholite mountains, the Landmannalaugar area is known for dramatic lighting and array of colours including yellow, pink, fluorescent green, purple, brown, black, and white.

While there, you can go on a 2 hour hike with your guide into the multicoloured hills surrounding Landmannalaugar. After the hike you can enjoy a relaxing bath in a natural geothermal spring.

Heading back from Landmannalaugar the tour continues west past Mt. Hekla, one of Iceland’s most formidable and infamous volcanoes. Since the time of settlement, Mt. Hekla has erupted numerous times, blanketing Iceland with thick layers of ash and pumice and was widely believed to be the gate to hell.

In the past few decades, Hekla has erupted roughly every ten years.

Returning to Reykjavik the tour takes you via Hellisheiði mountain.
