If you like beautiful, changing scenery, this is a hike you really should do at least once. We spent 3 days doing the hike from Landmannalaugar to Thorsmork, but could easily spend there a few more days on various shorter side hikes, if we had the time. One important thing to note: the weather will make all the difference. We... More

All the stuff you hear about Iceland - its' scenery, sense of nature, magnificence - was summed up in this hike. Making your way from Landmannalaugar, crossing the lava field when all of a sudden, this plateau of stunning colours appear before your eyes. The feeling you get when this happens is beyond words. The colours in the rhyolite mountains... More

The scenery here was spectacular, the hiking was great, and basking in a hot spring in the middle of nowhere was great fun. Visiting Laugavegur was one of the highlights of our trip to Iceland. The beauty, peacefulness, and lack of commercialism made this place unforgettable for my husband and me!

The colours of the mountains here are incredible, great views and fresh air! There's also natural hot springs that you can take a dip in and chat to the other locals before going on your way. Unfortunatley though, there are flies EVERYWHERE! literally, they are constantly flying into your face, mouth, ears (bring sunglasses!), so much that a few of... More

This is a must do trek for lovers of epic treks and hikes. Between the huts/campsites, there are no bathroom facilities, nor is there tree cover. The huts charge 1000 ISK to recharge each battery or cell phone.

Wow. On a gray, rainy, cloudy day, this place and the hot-spring-fed river were amazing. We walked among the Laugahraun (lava field) and almost got lost. We saw colors of rocks that seemed fake. I bathed in the river away from the crowd and enjoyed seeing how hot I could take before allowing myself to float away from the spring.... More

You walk from the camp along the obsidian field, then you see gas comming out of earth, you climb the Blahnúkur hill - and get a beautiful sight on the colored mountain rise. You finish the trip in the thermal water in the camp. A round trip for 2 hours. Take food with you - in the camp is just... More

My wife and I drove into Landmannalaugar via F225 from the west, stayed the night at the campground, and left down F208 south. The drive and scenery were diverse and fantastic, like nothing we've ever seen. We rented a Toyota Land Cruiser 4x4 (we didn't feel like taking our chances with a 'regular' 4x4). The river crossings were fun after... More
