The Landmannalaugar and Hekla tour starts by driving to the east from Reykjavik through the beautiful Þjórsárdalur valley, stopping at Hjalparfoss waterfall and Þjóðveldisbær (Viking house). Next, we will have a short coffee break at the highland center at Hrauneyjar. From there, we drive through scenic mountains and lava fields, and we will stop at the explosion crater Ljotipollur for a panoramic view before reaching Landmannalaugar. At Landmannalaugar, we will take a moment to relax and enjoy a bath in a warm natural pool next to a lava field. From Landmannalaugar, we drive through Domadalur, under the famous and active Mount Hekla volcano. If the weather allows, we will drive a truly rugged mountain track past lava fields and explosion craters along the volcano’s edge, 900 meters above sea level. From there, we can enjoy a panoramic view of the surrounding area before driving through rich farmlands back to Reykjavik.
Please remember to bring a bathing suit and a towel to bathe in the natural hot spring.
