Landmannalaugar and Hekla
Colours & Calderas
A Super Jeep Excursion
"The Journey is the destination"
Small group with local guide (max 10 passengers)
Landmannalaugar is a rhyolite volcanic area in the Torfajökull Caldera, exceptionally rich in colours which vary from green, yellow, blue and purple to pink, brown, black and white. The name refers to the hotsprings you find scattered around here, pools that have been used by the people of Iceland for centuries. Landmannalaugar is a part of the Fjallabak nature reserve, and we will spend some time here.
On our Landmannalaugar tour we pass through the fertile and cultivated southern countryside and the historical Þjórsárdalur. We will see a variety of craters and volcanoes in a moon-like landscape, and drive on mountain trails through the recent ash, pumice and lava fields created by the most famous and active volcano of Iceland, Mt. Hekla.
The route will vary depending on weather and trail conditions.
