Landmannalaugar

Landmannalaugar

 
Landmannalaugar, nestling under the high edge of an obsidian lava flow in one of the most scenic spots in the Icelandic highlands. The scenic interest in the area is tremendous. Mountains with super abundance of forms and colours, gashed by deep canyons and ridges. The mountains here are perhaps the most varied and colourful in the country. Here is a warden┤s station, a hut and a camping site. Near the hut is a warm water pool, created by confluence of natural hot water and cold water springs. There are numerous interesting hiking trails in the area. A hike up to nearby Blßhnj˙kur, where the visitor has unobstructed view of the surroundings is highly recommended.
