Itinerary for Landmannalaugar - Hekla

Our tour starts by driving east out of Reykjavik through green country side before entering the rough mountain tracks by the foothills of the famous volcano Hekla.  The landscape is shaped by centuries of volcanic activity, the most recent eruption in February 2000.

We drive a mountain track in the valley of Domadalur before we, powered by the Super Jeep, climb with us up to around 1000m above sea level where we enjoy a spectacular view of the Torfajokull glacier area, which is the largest high-temperature geothermal area in Iceland.  Weather permitting we have a panorama of 8 glaciers.

Certain times of the year we can go as far as Hrafntinnusker (Obsidian Skerry). Under and around the icecap of Hrafntinnusker there is great number of hot springs constantly shaping the environment; melting snow, making icecaves and supplying water to the glacial rivers.

Many different eruptions and the geothermal heat as made all kinds of strange lava formations and colors. This is a deserted land of awesome beauty. We then lower again and take a moment to relax and let it all sink in while enjoying a bath in warm natural pool in Landmannalaugar.

On the way back we take a look at the explosion crater Ljotipollur before heading back to Reykjavik. Once in Reykjavik we will drop you off at your hotel or a restaurant of your choice.Hekla volcano in Iceland
