Landmannalaugar- Coloured Mountains

Landmannalaugar is situated deep within the Icelandic highlands, paved road ended abruptly and was replaced by rough F-roads. Four wheel drive cars are necessary to reach this destination.

The mountains exhibit vivid colours, which are due to various types of mineral deposits, this is characteristic of volcanic landscapes.

    • When did you visit Iceland? Quite recently? We visited Landmannalaugar towards the end of our trip, that was in August, the weather was already pretty cold.
      That’s excuse to go back for another visit!
