Situated in the heart of Iceland's highlands, Landmannalaugar is renowned for its stunning hiking trails, vibrant rhyolite mountains, and geothermal hot springs. Geologically and aesthetically exceptional, it lies adjacent to the ebony Laugahraun lava field, a vast expanse of solidified magma originating from a 1477 eruption.
Our initial destination is Háifoss, among Iceland's loftiest waterfalls, cascading 122 meters from the Fossá river. Its neighbor, Granni, forms a captivating duo, crafting an enchanting Icelandic vista.
Sigöldugljufur, known as “The Valley of Tears,” is a hidden treasure deserving discovery. An array of waterfalls cascades into a canyon filled with azure waters, surrounded by an almost lunar landscape due to scarce vegetation. Once a river basin, Sigöldugljúfur's topography transformed with the creation of the Sigala hydroelectric station, altering the area's geography.
Bláhylur, or Hnausapollur, emerged 1200 years ago during colossal simultaneous volcanic activity in Bárðabunga and Torfajökuill calderas. This eruption reshaped the highlands and coincided with Iceland's settlement.
Landmannalaugar, known as the ‘People's Pools,' boasts mesmerizing beauty in the southern Highlands. Popular for summer hiking and natural hot spring bathing, its windswept rhyolite mountains dazzle with a spectrum of colors – red, pink, green, blue, and golden yellow. Our guided 2-3 hour moderate hike leads to a panoramic viewpoint, offering a breathtaking vista of the entire area.
