Major hub for hikers with numerous trails to explore.
If you’re a hiking enthusiast, chances are you’ve already heard of Landmannalaugar. In addition to being a dreamland for hikers, with numerous trails to explore, the area is also one of Iceland’s crown jewels.
Located in a valley between colourful rhyolite mountains at the edge of rhyolite lava field, Landmannalaugar features many unique geological elements, including hot and cold springs that combine to create a warm brook where people can relax tired muscles after a day of trekking.
Although the altitude is over 600 metres, the climate is surprisingly mild and the river banks are covered in grass and flowers. Landmannalaugar is only accessible with a 4x4 vehicle.View Central Highlands of Iceland
