Landmannalaugar Self Drive
Hjálparfoss – Ljótipollur – Landmannalaugar
This is a one-day drive tour to the astonishing Landmannalaugar which lies at the centre of the forbidding Icelandic highlands. Our route leads first through the Thjórsádalur Valley stopping at Hjálparfoss, one of Iceland’s loveliest waterfalls, before continuing into the extraordinary mountainscape to the water-filled Ljótipollur crater and the hot springs of the Landmannalaugar oasis.
On the way you will do some action driving including crossing rivers and driving some extreme tracks, but only after you deflate the tires for a smoother ride.
This is your opportunity to bathe in the natural hot springs or do a short guided hike before heading for active Mount Hekla, the queen of Icelandic volcanoes. You will drive to a height of 950 meters up the side of the volcano to capture the astounding views in all directions. Landmannalaugar with its amazing colors is an fantastic change to discover some of the wonders of Iceland and to drive it is just an amazing experience.
Included is a sitting guide/ instructor that teaches you how to deflate the tires and drive in various environments depending on seasons.
