Landmannalauger

If you go to Landmannalauger by yourself on tour, there are more things you must see, but you also have the chance try out some active nature activities here.

It is recommended to travel into the highlands through Pjorsardalur valley and visit Hjalparfoss waterfall.

Your tour continues toward the west and past Iceland's most infamous and active volcano, Hekla, which during the Middle Ages was believed to be the gateway to Hell. The volcano has had frequent eruptions in the past years and has left thick layers of ash and pumice over the landscape.
