Touring the beautiful highlands of South Iceland including Landmannalaugar. From Hekla, drive towards the neighboring Thjórsárdalur valley and enjoy its beautiful scenic landscape. A farming community lived here since the ninth century the beginning of the twelfth century when Mt. Hekla erupted and the whole valley was buried in volcanic ash. A reconstruction of the farm that belonged to a Viking Chieftain of those times was done and can be visited on this tour. The Gjáin can be accessed by a short hike from here. Landmannalaugar area, which can only be traversed in summer and using a 4 by 4 vehicle, hosts a popular campsite together with a mountain hut. Here you can enjoy a relaxing warm bath in a natural pool formed by water from a hot spring mixing naturally with water from coldwater springs. From here, the ice caped peak of Mt. Hekla can be seen.

Generally, Landmannalaugar offers numerous amazing hike trails passing though canyons, over ridges, and across valleys, in an area surrounded by magnificent mountains. It is a wonderland especially for those in love with nature. Here you will also find a number of lakes such as Lake Frostastaðavatn and Ljótipollur, a crater lake. At the side of the hill is a cave, Landmannahellir, going way into the hillside. It’s no doubt the most scenic of sites in Iceland are found in this region, what with the surrounding mountains and lush contrasting vegetation. This is a driving distance of 240 kilometers until you are back to Hella area.

Day 4 - Golden Circle

Golden Circle

The fourth day involves the popular Great Golden Circle Tour which includes a visit to the Thingvellir National Park on your way back. This is the place where the ancient Icelandic parliament was started almost a millennium ago. Other than being a place of such historical significance, Thingvellir is of greater geological importance not just to Iceland but to the world. The region has rifts and fissures which prove rifting of the earth’s crust, not forgetting its stunning beauty. You have the opportunity of seeing the many hot springs and geysers at the great Geysir hot spring area. The geysers keep erupting from time to time, some erupting so frequently, even in spans of few minutes such as Strokkur. On your way to Geysir area you come across Kerið, a volcanic crater. At the end of this route is Iceland’s biggest waterfall, the Gulfoss, from where you take the road back to Reykjavik. The route traverses about 200 kilometers and ends at Reykjavik.
