Landmannalaugar (Icelandic pronunciation: [ˈlantˌmanːaˌlœiːɣar̥] (listen)) is a location in Iceland's Fjallabak [ˈfjatlaˌpaːk] 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.

  • Absolutely stunning terrain after surviving the F roads. We booked a tour and we’re in a large tour vehicle. Take precautions if you get car sick. The other option is to have a 4wheel drive vehicle...

  • Fantastic views. Nice & doable hikes up Mt Blahnúkúr and Brennisteinnsalda, rounded up with a warm soak in the People's Pool. F208 from the North easy to navigate and drive with a decent 4x4. Park before the river crossing if you don't feel comfortable fording the river. Pay the facilities fee when using toilets/showers and not camping in the basecamp.
  • Breathtaking... natural hot tub under the moon ligth, speechless. if you gonna use the tub, you have to find the exact-tempreture spot. but going in the landmanalaugar for camping, you have to pack some groceries. cause in that area, you can not find anything but only chips. hiking around the area... is the one of best experience in my whole life.
