LANDMANNALAUGAR 3-DAY HIKING TRIP ITINERARY

DAY 1: FROSTASTAÐAVATN, LJÓTIPOLLUR

Our three-day adventure begins in Reykjavík. Once the presentations have been made at the meeting place - A-alstr-ti Street 2 at 7.00am, in the center of the capital - we will head by regular bus to the interior of Iceland. We will pass through the beautiful valley of the city, in the direction of the Hekla volcano. Through extensive lava fields from previous eruptions, we will approach the stunning mountains of Landmannalaugar. After lunch, it's time to do some hiking. We will start with a 10 kilometer hike that will take us to Lake Ljótipollur, which has nothing ugly despite its unfortunate name "ugly puddle". This lake is considered one of the 42 most beautiful crater lakes in the world. The reddish color of the crater and the bright blue of the water will marvel at us. And if that wasn't enough, you can enjoy a relaxing hot spring bath at sunset. The first day includes lunch and dinner.

DAY 2: BRENNISTEINSALDA, VONDUGIL AND THE RED MOUNTAINS OF SUÐURNÁMUR 

For the second day of our 3-day hiking trip we have booked a hike of about 11 kilometers to reach Suðurnámur, a mountain of 200 000 years rich in rhyolite, mineral that gives that color so striking and attractive to our eyes. Along the way, we will enjoy some of the most interesting and colorful places that make up the landscape of the "pearl" of Icelandic nature, Landmannalaugar: Kirkjufelli, the volcano Bláhnúkur or Brennisteinsalda, the most colorful mountain in Iceland. The second day includes breakfast, lunch and dinner.

DAY 3: BLÁHNÚKUR VOLCANO 

After breakfast, we will resume our 3-day hiking trip with a 3.5-hour hike to Bláhnúkur, a 60000-year-old blue volcano. A trail leads to the top of the mountain, from where you can see up to five glaciers, if the weather accompanies and visibility is good. Bláhnukur is undoubtedly one of the best places to photograph Landmannalaugar. Its panoramic view is second to none. After the descent, and after knowing all the geological details that make this landscape a unique place in the world, we will take the bus back to Reykjavik, where we will arrive around 21:00 hours to the meeting and farewell point. Breakfast and lunch are included on the third day.
