The Tour starts at Fellsmuli farm, situated below Mt. Hekla. The journey takes us to Landmannalaugar, a valley in the Icelandic highlands renowned for its striking rhyolite mountains, vast lava fields and a natural hot spring that lends its name to the valley. We will traverse through the highlands alongside Hekla until we arrive at Landmannahellir, where Icelandic farmers sheltered their sheep in a cave during round-up before constructing a better shed for them. The following day, we proceed with the tour in Landmannalaugar, and the highlight is bathing in the warm river. We then head southwest near Lake Sau冒leysuvatn and cross Lambaskar冒 mountain passage before arriving at H贸lask贸gur mountain hut, where we spend the night. Finally, the tour concludes back at Fellsm煤li farm.
