Iceland: Landmannalaugar 4-Hour Hiking Experience
- Pickup available
- Duration options: 5 - 14 hours
This is a full day tour, I was picked up at 7:30am and got back to the city at 8:20pm Steve our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us some really good insight into the wonder of lannmannalauger. Our group were all experienced hikers so we opted for the more challenging route up the volcano and back down through the lava fields. Really pleased I choose an option to do this with a hiking guide as it would have been very easy to get lost in the lava field. It would have been made slightly nicer by having an extra 30 to go in the hot spring. Whilst I enjoyed this, I would of liked to relax longer in the hot spring after the hike.
This was the highlight of my visit to Iceland. Our fun guide Matt created an exciting and safe (yet challenging) hike while entertaining us with many "fun facts" about Iceland's geology and geography, and perceptive comments about Icelandic culture, language, attitudes, and history. The hike is set in the beautiful highlands and the dip into the geothermal pond after the hike should not be not to be missed. The bus ride there and back was also comfortable and fun as the amazing bus driver expertly drove around some scary curves. This was the best tour ever!
Really good, knowledgable guide & relaxed pace hike in a stunning location followed by a very welcome dip in the hot springs. We were picked up & dropped off in Hella & it took 3 hours each way. The bus was fairly comfortable but the roads are quite bad in places. Not sure if it took longer than anticipated because of the state of the roads as we were told it would be 2 hours when we set off. It made for a very long day which was otherwise really good.
The hike itself was great. National park is amazing. Our guides were with us all the time and they seemed to have a lot of knowledge and experience. The only thing that bothered us was the pick up. Either there is a mistake in different information sources or Arctic adventures wanted to make it look, as if we did a mistake and came late. It would be great if you could verify your information before accusing customers
we had such a wonderful trip on august 4th ! very skillful driver and lovely storyteller as guide. They we just excited as we where, and it really was our day, which we enjoyed a lot!! Can recommend this trip to anyone travelling to iceland. You must experience this beautifull landscape, and the trip is organized such that it really adds to the experience!
