All about the trip
Þjórsárdalur is one of the hidden treasures of Iceland, a beautiful valley full of amazing natural attractions. Traversed by Þjórsá river, the longest one in Iceland, the area is lush with vegetation and offers a landscape of sharp contrasts such as flourishing birch woods, sandy lava fields, amazing rock formations, rivers and numerous picturesque waterfalls.
We continue our journey to the astonishing waterfall Hjálparfoss. Hjálparfoss is a two-stepped waterfall, split over two separate flumes that join at its base into a large plunge pool. You can take an easy descending walking path with long steps to join viewing platforms and get close to the shore of the wide pool.
Our next stop is Hnausapollur, also called Bláhylur “The Blue Pool”. It is a charming lake located inside a crater. When you stand on the hill above the crater, the view is amazing and it is like looking over landscapes painted on canvas.
Frostastaðavatn is another wonderful lake, full of colors, close to Landmannalaugar. The volcanic activity of the area has created a unique dream landscape, with lava flows which plunge directly into the blue and green deep water of the lake.
Our main goal of the tour is Landmannalaugar. It is a wonderful place with stunning geological curiosities known all over the world with its mind-blowing landscapes, full of extraordinary wonders. The walking path leads us to the volcano Brennisteinsfjöll “Sulfuric Mountain” which is probably the most colorful one on Iceland. The yellow sulfide contrasts with the blue and black colors of lava fields, dotted with green lichens. After this walk, you can enjoy a relaxing bath in the natural hot pool nestled at the foot of Laugahraun lava field. The hot springs combine hot and cold water because of the boiling hot flows from the volcanic activity and the freezing waters of the surrounding glaciers. A perfect temperature at around 40 degrees for relaxing the body.
Ljótipollur is the crater lake which formed by an impact in 1477 along the Torfajökull Volcanic System. Ljótipollur is a beautiful lake surrounded by dark-red crater walls.
Our last stop of the day, Háifoss is a dazzling waterfall that we will discover on the way back.What Wikipedia Says
