Landmannalaugar is a remote and rugged volcanic landscape of orange & cream (rhyolite), blue and green mountains. Sitting atop the Mid Atlantic Ridge, natural hot springs abound.
We first drive around the base of Hekla, one of the most active volcanoes in Europe. The route then takes us through captivating, contorted lava flows that have emerged from a myriad of different craters and fissures.
After an easy Laugarhraun lava field hike, delicious hot spring bathing offers a uniquely pleasurable experience. Remember to bring your swimwear if you want to take a dip in the natural hot spring.
