Landmannalaugar Day Tour – Best Day in Iceland!

We actually took our day tour of Landmannalaugar from Reykjavik, not Selfoss, but this is the same small company that offers pick-ups from several cities.

Mike, the owner, picked us up in his jeep and took us on a trip I will never forget. We stopped at a new geothermal plant where we were given a private tour of the facility. Then we drove the long drive to Landmannalaugar, stopping in a few places for photos and snacks. It is a bit far for a day tour because getting there takes about 3.5 hours since the back roads aren’t paved and have quite a few rocks/muddy patches. But the drive was incredibly beautiful and part of the experience for me. (Several of the pictures I’m posting were technically taken along the drive, but I still think of the whole day as the Landmannalaugar experience.)

Mike spent much of the drive telling us all about Iceland’s history, customers, and random interesting facts. It was more like spending a day with a new friend than a tour! When we got to Landmannalaugar he took us on a beautiful hour-long hike up into the mountainside. We had the option to swim in the hot springs, but opted for the hike instead


This was one of the best days of my life and certainly my best in Iceland. I highly advise not attempting to visit/drive to Landmannalaugar on your own, so outside of the peak season this is definitely the best option. Heck, it’s probably the best option regardless! Completely worth every penny and significantly less expensive than competing companies. Take this tour!!!!

“You must, you need to have this experience ”

Landmannalaugar is definitely your best gift. You will have access to incredible landscape and far view from volcanoes and valleys. The pad was quite easy and difficult in some areas, recommended to have energy drinks and energy food. Take gloves with you because is quite windy on the top and start to be warm when you go down. Have charge your phone, you will need lot of space and time to enjoy the fantastic trip. Just do it!

Landmannalaugar Tours
The mountains are amazing with so many colours, peace and quiet. After long trekking you can take a relaxing break in hot springs near hostel. The road which leads to it quite rough but the landscapes compensate the hardships of a journey. One of the most beautiful places in Iceland.

We did our Tour with Landmannalaugar Tours. Easily booked online, pick up like arranged at the hotel, more than on time. Small group of 6 with a great guide (Jon son of Thor 🙂 ). Interesting local and geological knowledge. We went for a cup of coffee afterwards and he had some good recommendations about trips to do. He made us do a lovely hiking trip. Nice half day activity.
