About the tour
Landmannalaugar is a breathtaking, out-of-this-world area, located in the heart of Iceland’s Southern Highlands. The color palette of this vast, untouched region resembles an alien planet and if you spend enough time here, you might even forget that you are on Earth and not somewhere else in the universe. This beloved and untouched location was formed approximately 10 000 years ago during the last major Ice Age.
Without a doubt, this tour will require moderate fitness and stamina, but for those who are willing to join us on this spectacular adventure, countless rewards will be offered by this otherworldly gem of nature.
After our initial meeting in the capital, we will drive you to the base camp and an approximately 2 hour-long hike will follow. During this hike, you will be surrounded by lava fields, mountains with black sand and green moss cover and many more. After the hike, you will be able to swim in a natural geothermal hot spring with a temperature of up to 40 Celsius.
The day is far from over though, other spectacular sights await us. We will make a stop at Háifoss (“High Waterfall”) which is the third tallest one in Iceland. From here you will be able to see the notorious Hekla volcano, which has erupted over twenty times since the first settlement was founded in Iceland. Furthermore, mysterious folklore stories surround the waterfall’s history, you will hear more once we arrive.
We are also visiting Sigöldugljúfur, the “Valley of Tears”. The name originates from the numerous waterfalls, which are located here. Originally, this canyon was a riverbed, but once the Sigala hydroelectric station became operational, the surrounding landscape changed drastically, and nowadays this picturesque canyon functions as a memento of bygone days.
