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.

  • Having taken a different hike than the others took, I found myself alone in the lava field until the sun revealed this beautiful place
  • Beautiful views. Several magnificent hikes. Nice hot spring. A bit over crowded on occasions.
  • Best place to visit in Iceland. Unbelievable colors.
  • May 4th the road is closed 26 km to the spot, another road is 2h trip.
  • The most beautiful place on earth
