Landmannalaugar is known as the heart of the Icelandic highlands. It’s a beautiful area filled with colorful, rhyolite mountains, geothermal activity and incredible hiking trails. What’s more, it is only accessible during the summer months. Intimate super jeep tours led by a local guide are the best way to soak up the scenery. These super jeep tours usually host 2-8 guests and allow you to take routes not accessible by normal car.
