A great highland tour to one of the largest geothermal areas in Iceland.
This is a unique and unforgettable tour through some of the most rugged terrain in the southern highlands of Iceland.
We start by heading to the foot of Hekla where the landscape has been shaped by centuries of volcanic activity. In our jeep we climb as high as 1000 m (3280’) above sea level to enjoy fascinating views over the Fjallabak Nature Reserve and some of Iceland’s magnificent glaciers, although visibility is weather permitting. Now we are in one of the largest geothermal areas in Iceland where fire and ice shape the landscape.
We continue to Landmannalaugar where a short hike to enjoy the colorful landscape and a warm bath in a natural pool is optional before heading back to Reykjavík. This is a land of unreal beauty with an amazing range of colors, steaming hot springs, glacier ice and explosive craters.
