Landmannalaugar is a unique area near the volcano Hekla – in southern section of Iceland’s highlands. It displays a number of unusual geological elements, like the multicolored rhyolite mountains and expansive lava fields, not far from the service center.
The Landmannalaugar area is a popular tourist destination and hiking hub in Iceland’s highlands. It is almost invariably the starting point of the famous Laugavegur trekking trail, but also an ideal base for a variety of rewarding daylong or shorter hikes. A dip in the local natural geothermal pool and a hot shower afterwards at the shower facilities is the perfect relaxation at the end of the day.
Tourists visit the area from June through late September, after which time the road to Landmannalaugar is closed. A mountain lodge, in operation since 1951, can accommodate 78 people and has basic amenities.
We have daily departures to Landmannalaugar from Reykjavík, Selfoss, Hella and Leirubakki. For detailed information on departures please see our timetable.
