Want to experience some magic? Want to experience a surreal place of extreme beauty and breath-taking views? Well then, Landmannalaugar is the place for you.
Landmannalaugar is located in the southern part of Iceland‘s highlands, near Mt. Hekla volcano. The whole area is a pearl of nature, situated in a valley with beautiful mountains and lava all around.
What makes Landmannalaugar so extra-special? Well, for some it is the hot springs in he area where people can bathe.
For others it is the colours and magnificent landscape. It’s almost impossible to describe.
Yet, for some it must be the experience of camping in one of the most uncomfortable camping grounds in Iceland (see photo).
And then of course there are those who cannot go out of town, without being able to shop in a mall, even if it is just for a cup of coffee. For that there is a solution, called the Mountain Mall.
Perhaps it's the contrast of a soothing outdoor public bathing area on the one hand and the need to be reasonably fit and able to take at least a one hour walk in a lava field in order to see the best of the best.
Whatever the reason, it is truly an unforgettable site.
For nature lovers, Landmannalaugar is nothing short of paradise. Excellent hiking, stunning surroundings, clean crystal clear water, almost right next to geothermal springs, multi-coloured rhyolite mountains and expansive lava fields.
Let the pictures do the talking.
If you are coming to Iceland in summer or early autumn and if you are a nature lover, be sure to check out Landmannalaugar. Don't forget your bathing suits and hiking shoes.
