Landmannalaugar hiking trails
Landmannalaugar is a region near Hekla volcano in the southern area of the highlands. A popular tourist destination and hiking hub in Iceland’s highlands. An area of varied shapes and forms with colorful rolling hills and mountains tinted by rhylolite minerals and obsidian post glacial lava flows. Almost invariably the starting point of the famous Laugavegur trekking trail, but also an ideal base for a variety of rewarding daylong or shorter hikes. The local natural geothermal pool and showers facilitate perfect relaxation at the end of the day.
Landmannalaugar is ideal for one day visits or extended stays. Camping facilities and sleeping bag accommodation in mountain cabins available.
In Thorsmork you will find a small and quiet Slyppugil Campsite, operated by HI Iceland. It is located where the trail LAUGAVEGUR ends and where the trail FIMMVÖRÐUHÁLS either ends or begins. It is a hidden gem, just 200m away from the Langidalur Bus Stop to/from Reykjavik.
The Campsite fee is used to maintain and improve facilities for travelers in Þórsmörk – Slyppugil.
Reserve your Camping Spot at the Campsite Reception. Price is 2.500 kr incl shower.
