Itinerary

 


We leave from Reykjavík and head to the interior geothermal area of Landmannalaugar, often referred to as “The Pearl of the Central Highlands”. We journey through the beautiful countryside of southern Iceland and proceed into the central highlands through Þjórsárdalur valley where we will visit Hjálparfoss waterfall.

Landmannalaugar’s colorful mountains were formed by repeated volcanic activity in the area for centuries and the picturesque natural landscape in this raw climate is simply breathtaking. During our stay at Landmannalaugar, you can enjoy a relaxing bath in a natural warm pool which is created by confluence of hot and cold springs or you can take a leisurely hike in the surrounding rhyolite mountain paths. The tour returns past Iceland’s most infamous and active volcano, Hekla, which was believed to be the entrance to hell during the dark Middle Ages. The volcano has erupted frequently in the past years and has left a thick carpet of ash and pumice over the immediate vicinity of the volcano. We return to Reykjavík over Hellisheiði mountain pass.

We recommend you bring your bathing suit and a towel.
