The mind-blowing beauty of Landmannalaugar
The highlands of Landmannalaugar Nature Reserve are a superb example of mind-blowing landscapes! With multicoloured mountains, soothing hot springs, rambling lava flows and clear blue lakes make this magical place one of Iceland’s most unique destinations, and a must for explorers!
Landmannalaugar is a truly rare area, both geologically and aesthetically. The area can be found nestled beside the raven-black Laugahraun lava field, a sweeping expanse of dried magma which originally formed in 1477.
Landmannalaugar itself is made up of windswept rhyolite mountains, a rock type that creates a full spectrum of dazzling colour on the mountainside. Shades of red, pink, green and golden yellow all change their tone, keeping in movement with the sun rays and creating an area of wilderness that resembles no place else on earth.
