See the colours of Landmannalaugar

One of the most breathtaking locations in Southern Iceland is Landmannalaugar: a region renowned for its rhyolite mountains displayed in vividly coloured layers. Landmannalaugar really is a photographer’s dream destination.

The heart of the highlands are accessible throughout the summer months for a once in a lifetime experience at Landmannalaugar. Smaller, personally tailored super-jeep tours are the best way to soak up the scenery; they usually host 2-8 guests and allow you to take routes not accessible by normal car.

On the drive from Hotel Rangá you will experience a landscape that has gone through dramatic changes since the settlement, with endless twisting and turning lava formations that have emerged from a myriad of different craters. You will pass the roots of Mt. Hekla and witness the remote rugged landscape of one of the biggest geothermal areas in Iceland.
