Hekla – Landmannalaugar
We are proud to be the only company who offer taxi tours to Landmannalaugar, natural hot pools in the highlands. This tour is only possible to go on four-wheel drive cars since there are unbridged rivers on this route. This tour is a unique experience. We pass the queen of Icelandic volcanoes, Hekla, and drive on ancient mountain road, called “Dómadalsleið.” The landscape in these areas is absolutely stunning. We look at places like “Ljóti Pollur” (Ugly pool)which is a crater that erupted around the year 1480 when large eruptions occurred in the area . Now “Ugly Pool” is one of the better fishing lakes in Iceland and it is certainly not ugly! In Landmannalaugar is ideal to rest and take a bath in the natural warm water, sheltered by lava wall and enjoy the amazing scenery.
