Hiking in a geothermal wonderland surrounded by colorful mountains
Accommodation in mountain hut.
Discover the incredible highlands of Iceland on this 3-day trekking tour of Landmannalaugar. Landmannalaugar is a magical place in the Fjallabak Nature Reserve in the Highlands of Iceland. Known for the vibrant colors of its silica-rich igneous volcanic rock mountains and lava fields, this destination is home to the most perfect hiking trails. Hiking experience or not, a hike in the area is sure to leave you feeling as though you are walking through a beautiful painting.
We will hike to some of the most interesting places around Landmannalaugar, like Frostastadavatn Lake, the ill-named Ljótipollur (Ugly Puddle) and Brennisteinsalda covered in steaming vents and sulfur deposits. We will also have the chance to climb on Suđuhámur (920 m above sea level), a mountain rich in liparit mineral while going through Vondugil Canyon. On the top of Bláhnúkur we will be able to enjoy an amazing view over Landmannalaugar´s geothermal area. After spending time hiking, our idea of a perfect cure includes a relaxing bath in the steaming area of a natural pool nearby. Our Three Day Trekking Trip to one of the most geothermal active areas of Iceland is the ideal trip for avid hikers and outdoors enthusiasts. Landmannalaugar is the official starting point for the famous Laugavegur Trek- one of the world's top 20 hikes according to National Geographic.
Your days of hiking are rewarded with stupendous views and evenings spent in an amazing highland location. There is nothing more relaxing or rejuvenating than bathing in a hot spring pool surrounded by blue, green, mellow caramel and even red-tinged peaks, as soft sulfur-scented steam drifts around you. Enjoy the company of like-minded fellow travelers and make new friends.
