Full description
Enjoy a day tour to the Southern Highland of Fjallabak to explore the wonders of Iceland's Landmannalaugar and Hekla Volcano area. Dive into a bubbling wonderland with caramel colored peaks, soothing hot springs, rambling lava flows and clear blue lakes.  Landmannalaugar, together with Hekla, an active volcano in its neighborhood, is one of Iceland's most unique destinations and a must for all who love to explore the beauty of nature. Discover one of the most active geothermal areas flanked by rhyolite mountains and steaming hot springs. Start the day with lunch and set off on a 4-hour hike through the sprawling lava fields of Laugahraun, Vondugil Canyon and up to the summit of the colorful mountain of Brennisteinsalda with its steaming vents and Sulphur deposits. Descend through the Grænagil canyon, carved as a result of geodynamic activity of mountains, volcanoes and glacial rivers. If time and weather conditions allow, climb Bláhnúkur, a circa 60,000-year-old volcano with panoramic views of the Landmannalaugar Valley.  Have a bath in a natural hot pool, where both hot and cold water flow out from beneath Laugahraun, mixing together and forming the perfect bathing conditions. Remember to take your swimwear and a towel with you.

    The hike itself was great. National park is amazing. Our guides were with us all the time and they seemed to have a lot of knowledge and experience. The only thing that bothered us was the pick up. Either there is a mistake in different information sources or Arctic adventures wanted to make it look, as if we did a mistake and came late. It would be great if you could verify your information before accusing customers

    It was an indescribable and unforgettable experience. The hike is only recommended for every nature lover and leaves you speechless. In addition, our guide was very nice and gave a lot of information that astonished. Thanks also go to our bus driver, who brought us safely through the bumpy volcanic landscape!

    Amazing scenery, feels different to others parts of Iceland

    This is a full day tour, I was picked up at 7:30am and got back to the city at 8:20pm Steve our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us some really good insight into the wonder of lannmannalauger. Our group were all experienced hikers so we opted for the more challenging route up the volcano and back down through the lava fields. Really pleased I choose an option to do this with a hiking guide as it would have been very easy to get lost in the lava field. It would have been made slightly nicer by having an extra 30 to go in the hot spring. Whilst I enjoyed this, I would of liked to relax longer in the hot spring after the hike.
