Colors of Landmannalaugar | Minibus 4×4 Tour

Landmannalaugar in summer offers you the option to hike and bathe in the geothermal pool. We’ll have a 3-hour stop in Landmannalaugar, and this should give you enough time to really enjoy this location. To our knowledge, we’re the only company in Iceland running this guided tour by 4×4 minibus. We also enjoy having a small group and therefore be able tend to your wishes more personally!

Note: pick up from Selfoss is possible.

It’s great if you have brought your own lunch pack. But if not, we will make a stop along the way where you can buy it, since there’s no real shopping to be done once we’ve arrived to our destination. Our route on the 4×4 minibus takes us to Waterfall Hjálparfoss, where once upon a time horses and men were able to rest after a long journey. We’ll take you to the paradisaical valley of Gjáin. Water cascades in all directions. Then we have an impressive waterfall called Sigöldufoss. We’ll then visit the Crater Lake Bláhylur, which has been nick-named “Blue Pool” Crater. It’s also known as Hnausapollur, but that’s certainly more difficult to pronounce in Icelandic.

Once in Landmannalaugar we start to see the famous rhyolite mountains and their strong colors, reminding us of a painter’s palette. Since this tour is in summer, we recommend you to do the easy hike (see the pictures), which should take about 1.5 – 2 hours, depending on how many photos you take. And if you have time and you want, there’s the geothermal pool too. Don’t forget your towel and swim suit!

This is a long day tour, and we hope you will enjoy it just like a kid! 🙂

Contact us at if you can’t find tour availability for your selected date. We may be able to arrange for an extra departure, if the minimum is met (4 adults). We also have our super jeep tour – book here if you want to upgrade.

REVIEW: “Landmannalaugar”

“Although relatively expensive this trip proved to be the highlight of a fantastic holiday. Travelling in March, the F208 road was completely hidden by snow, but with an incredible 4 by 4 and driver we navigated some of the most awesome scenery of mountains, lava fields, rivers and volcanoes…” Continue reading on TripAdvisor…

REVIEW: “Worth travelling to Iceland just to tour with this company”

“[…] I don’t want to risk any plot spoilers for future passengers so I won’t say what he drove us over or through but it was immense fun, utterly exhilarating… we’re both still excited by the experience. Our thanks to Discover Iceland, to Reynir and to Stefan for helping us to make life-long memories. This all meant a great deal to the two of us. Truly, it would have been worth flying to Iceland just to go on tour with them.” Continue reading on TripAdvisor…
