The Landmannalaugar area is a popular tourist destination situated in the east of the volcano Hekla and in the west of the Vatnajökull icecap.

The area is situated close to the natural geothermal hot springs. The area displays a number of unusual geological elements, like the multicolored rhyolite mountains and expansive lava fields which connect to one of Iceland‘s most active geothermal areas.
