FROM 42,900 ISK
On this tour from Reykjavik, ACTIVITY ICELAND takes you to the jewel of the central highlands of Iceland, Landmannalaugar, within the Fjallabak nature reserve.
No matter what time of year it is, a journey to Landmannalaugar is always amazing. During summer you see multicolored rhyolite mountains known for dramatic lighting and an array of colors, including yellow, pink, fluorescent green and purple, brown, black and white.
The area offers several shorter hikes in this stunning scenery, giving you a spectacular view of everything Landmannalaugar has to offer. You will be stunned by the ancient fields, explosion craters, waterfalls and unforgettable hot pools. Don’t forget your bathing suits and towel!
During winter months, the whole area is covered in deep snow, giving it a truly magical feel. The way to Landmannalaugar is ill accessible, making this the ultimate super jeep tour, utilizing the vehicle to its full potential. Once you get there, act like a local and take a dip in the hot pool, surrounded by banks of melting ice and snow. It will be a mix of hot and cold, and truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
On a clear day Mt. Hekla will show herself to you on the way to and from Landmannalaugar. She is the most active volcano in Iceland and since the time of settlement over 1000 years ago, Mt. Hekla has erupted numerous times blanketing Iceland with thick layers of ash and pumice. It is no wonder that early settlers in Iceland believed Mt. Hekla to be the gateway to hell. In more recent times Mt. Hekla would erupted roughly every ten years, although the last time was the year 2000, so she is slightly overdue!
Don’t miss this chance to experience one of Icelands must see sights. Not all visitors are lucky enough to get to the highlands, let Activity Iceland show you the best.
