The landscapes of Landmannalaugar are incredibly diverse, ranging from the black lava of the Laugahraun lava field to Mt. Brennisteinsalda, multicolored by sulfur, steaming hot springs, green moss, and red iron.

Thanks to its location on top of a volcanic plateau, the area was formed by volcanic activity and subsequent erosion. Over time, erosion has drastically shaped the landscapes, carving out the intense valleys and canyons that characterize the area today. This has resulted in a variety of rock formations, colors and textures, which are all incredibly unique.

 In front of Brennisteinsalda, there is a field of obsidian, as well as a nearby Bláhnúkur volcano, featuring stunning black and blue sides. Landmannalaugar presents a unique color flow that is almost painting-like – a wonderful setting for a day hike in Iceland.

This secluded area has been a favorite among adventure seekers for years, and now you have the chance to visit this magnificent place with our Landmannalaugar hiking tour.

The tour

The Landmannalaugar day hike is available with or without pick-up from Reykjavík. Please be sure to add pick-up to your booking if you are not planning on meeting us in Landmannalaugar for the tour. If you plan to meet us in Landmannalaugar, please keep in mind that you will need a 4×4 jeep permitted on F-roads to drive there.

Your hiking adventure will start from the main hut. You will then take off for about four hours, where you will hike around the most magnificent landscapes. The total hiking distance is approximately 8-10 km. The route goes over the Laugahraun lava field, through Vondugil canyon, and up to Mt. Brennisteinsalda, a multicolored peak that is highly characteristic of the area.

On the way down, you will walk down Graenagil gorge, called Green Gorge in Icelandic because of the dominant green color of rhyolite in the area. If time allows, we will summit Blahnukur Volcano before soaking in the hot pool and taking in the spectacular surroundings of this phenomenal place!
