Pearl of Central Highlands – Landmannalaugar & Mt. Hekla
DAY TOUR – Experience the Pearl of Iceland’s Central Highlands where you will see both Landmannalaugar & Mt. Hekla in super jeeps. You will see lava fields, small rivers and volcanic craters. After touring and hiking, you can relax in the hot springs.
A visit to Iceland is never complete unless you experience the wonders of Landmannalaugar & Mt. Hekla. We will drive out of Reykjavík in super jeeps driven by experienced drivers to the “jewel of the interior”. We will drive through Þjórsárdalur valley to see various lava fields of different eras as well as small rivers and volcanic craters of various sizes, forming a unique and breathtaking landscape. This is just the tip of the iceberg because there is more to see when we get to Landmannalaugar.
Landmannalaugar, also known as pearl of central highlands, is a popular tourist attraction surrounded by colorful rhyolite mountains due to numerous volcanic activities. Due to the colors of pink, brown, green, yellow, blue, purple, black, and white, its view is breathtaking and picturesque. The mountains also split with gullies and gorges that are perfect for hiking. So if you want to hike, don’t forget to bring your hiking gear and clothing.
Once done, we can relax by having a relieving and warm bath in a natural warm pool combined by hot and cold springs. When you are here, you will be asked to stay in the wooden path as other parts of the pool are vegetated. You can enjoy a nice bath before going back to Reykjavik.
