Landmannalaugar is a place close to Hekla volcano in the southern part of Iceland‘s highlands with diverse styles and types with brilliant rolling hillsides and mountains colored by rhylolite minerals and obsidian post-glacial lavaflows.
The region exhibits several uncommon geological components, such as the multi-colored rhyolite hills and grand lava areas, a short distance from the service-center.
The Landmannalaugar region is a well-known visiting location and walking heart in Iceland‘s highlands. It’s nearly always the starting place of the well-known Laugavegur hiking path, but in addition a great foundation to get various satisfying day-long or smaller hikes. The nearby geothermal pool and bathrooms provide great relaxation by the end of the day.
Visitors visit the region from June through late September, and after that time the route is closed over the wintertime. A mountain lodge, functioning since 1951, may accomodate 78 individuals and contains simple amenities.
