Landmannalaugar (Icelandic pronunciation: [ˈlantˌmanːaˌlœiːɣar̥] (listen)) is a location in Iceland's Fjallabak Nature Reserve in the Highlands. It is at the edge of the Laugahraun [ˈlœiːɣaˌr̥œiːn] lava field, formed in an eruption in approximately 1477. It is known for its natural geothermal hot springs and surrounding landscape.

Landmannalaugar is at the northern end of the Laugavegur hiking trail, and the Iceland Touring Association operates a mountain hut with accommodation for hikers. During the tourist high season, a small shop and a horse tour agency operate there, as well as the ICE-SAR highland patrol in Fjallabak. Several bus companies have regular trips to and from Landmannalaugar during the tourist season.

  • May 4th the road is closed 26 km to the spot, another road is 2h trip.
