Landmannalaugar, one of Iceland's most unique destinations, is famous for its lush landscapes made up of rhyolite mountains, steaming hot springs, and a view of the active Hekla volcano. One of the best hikes in Iceland, Landmannalaugar is must-do for nature lovers and mountaineers. A relative easy hike, you get six hours to explore the entire area. Start with a pick up from one of two locations in Reykjavik that'll drop you off at the beginning of your self-guided hike (you can purchase your area maps on the bus) which lasts for about 4 hours (back and forth). Go through the sprawling lava fields of Laugahraun, Vondugil canyon and then climb up to the summit Brennisteinsalda - famous for its steaming vents and sulfur deposits. Once you've reached the peak, you can choose to descend to the Graenagil canyon, and weather permitting, climb up Blahnukur, a 60,000 year old volcano that offers panoramic views of the Landmannalaugar Valley. Finally, before your time ends, treat yourself to a relaxing bath in natural hot springs (don't forget to bring your towel and swimwear!), while admiring the beautiful surroundings that you can really only see in Iceland - the perfect way to end this wonderful experience before getting dropped off back in Reykjavik.
