Join us on a beautiful jeep tour in to the highlands of Iceland. This trip is perfect for people that want to take a jeep ride and hike in a small group with a local guide.
Landmannalaugar are known for their beautiful landscape, geothermal activity and great hiking trails. Big rhyolite mountains and some of the most colorful peaks in Iceland put their mark on this place.
We start the day from Reykjavík and drive east to Landmannalaugar, the drive takes about 3hours but we take a few stops on the way like Valagjá volcanic crater located near the mountain road Landmannaleið and Ljótipollur ( Ugly Puddle ) is an old explosive caldera field with bright blue water.
When we get to Landmannalaugar it is nice to have something to eat before we do some hiking. Several options are for the hiking but our most common one is Mt. Bláhnjúkur (Blue Peak) and Brennisteinsalda (Sulfur Wave). This is an easy hike with an amazing view over the lava fields and surrounding mountains, this hike takes around 4 – 5 hours. After we are done hiking it is perfect to relax in the geothermal pool and have one beer before we drive back to Reykjavík.
