Private Landmannalaugar Tour from Reykjavik

Visit Landmannalaugar which lies in the Icelandic highlands. You have the opportunity to view the most colorful mountains in Iceland and to bath in a natural hot spring. During this private Landmannalaugar tour from Reykjavik, your guide will show you some of the most beautiful areas of Iceland.

Your private guide picks you up from your accommodation in the area of Reykjavik and you journey through the beautiful countryside of Southern Iceland. You enter the highlands through Þjorsardalur valley. From there Iceland‘s best-known volcano Hekla is clearly visible. Hekla has erupted numerous times blanketing Iceland with thick layers of ash and pumice and for centuries people believed it is the gateway to hell. On the way to Landmannalaugar, you will visit Stöng a reconstructed Viking-era farmstead. The farm is believed to have been destroyed in the Hekla eruption in the year 1104. You will also visit the picturesque waterfall Hjálpafoss.

The area in the highlands is unbelievable rugged, volcanic and beautiful in its own way. When you enter the valley of Landmannalaugar the landscape will suddenly change and you will see the famous multicolored rhyolite mountains which look like painted in different colors. The area of Landmannalaugar is known for dramatic lighting and an array of colors including yellow, pink, fluorescent green and purple, brown, black and white. It is difficult to describe it and you definitely need to see it with your own eyes.

If you are interested your private guide will go with you on a short hike in the area. You should definitely not miss the chance to bath in a natural hot spring. Please do not forget your bathing suit and a towel. After an amazing day in the highlands of Iceland, your guide drives you back to Reykjavik.
