A 2 day Arctic Truck adventure to the Landmannalaugar, the Icelandic Highland paradise.
We drive from Reykjavík to Hrauneyjar highland center and all the way down to Þjórsárdalur valley. We make some photo stops on the way, first at Háifoss the second highest waterfall of the island that drops here from a height of 122 m. Then we drive to the gorgeous canyon called Gjáin and the Hjálparfoss waterfall.
From there we will be traveling to the most special area our backyard has to offer, over a wide variety of tracks, through breathtaking mountain ranges. We drive to Landmannalaugar, a highland paradise where the extraordinary colors of the area leave nobody untouched. On the journey, we drive on mountain- and gravel roads through beautiful landscapes and colorful mountains and cross some rivers.
We end the day at the comfy mountain hut at the borders of the warm river. The extraordinary colors that surround the hut in Landmannalaugar will leave nobody untouched. After relaxing and enjoying a bath in the natural hot river we head to the hut and enjoy a BBQ leg of lamb.
In the wintertime, this is one of the best places to see the magical Northern Lights dance above your heads.
In the morning, we pack all our gear and slowly we head back to civilization, it will take some time to get back to road nr. 1. If conditions allow we visit Mount Hekla that is a 1450 meter high and one of Iceland’s most active volcanoes that had its most recent eruption in 2000. During the Middle Ages, Europeans called the volcano the “Gateway to Hell”
