Landmannalaugar is a hiking paradise in the highlands of South Iceland. It is set within a circle of colorful rhyolite mountains and lava fields, remnants of the area's volcanic activity. The landscape is truly unforgettable, full of incredible opportunities to photograph or simply take in the view.

Landmannalaugar takes its name from a stream running through it, where in dramatic surroundings you can bathe in its naturally heated waters. Note that you will need a 4x4 vehicle to get there, due to the small streams and stretches of bumpy gravel road and the road is only accessible during summer.
