Landmannalaugar - A Jewel in the Highlands

Landmannalaugar is a major hub for hikers with numerous interesting trails and a breathtaking diversity of landscapes. Located in a valley between colourful rhyolite mountains at the edge of  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 meters, the climate is surprisingly mild and river banks are covered in grass and flowers. The area is accessible only by 4x4 vehicle.
