On our way back we will take the Dómadalur route that takes us through lava fields and between the mountains. Truly a unique scenery. One of the highlights is the waterfall Þjófafoss, which means “Waterfall of the Thieves”. Vikings would drown thieves there in the old days, binding their hands and feet and throwing them into the falls from the high cliff.
We will stop to by volcano Hekla and take a walk in the lava fields. Hekla was nicknamed “the Gateway to Hell” in the Middle Ages, and for good reason – it’s Iceland’s most active volcano and she last erupted in 2000.
We head back to the city in the evening sun.
The Geothermal Pool
Bring a swimsuit and seize the chance to bathe in the warm natural pool. At Landmannalaugar, colourful rhyolite mountains fill the views, indicating that geothermal activity is everywhere.
We hope the memories of Landmannalaugar’s majestic scenery and of our thrilling super jeep excursion will stay with you forever.

Good to know
This is “off-road” in the meaning of traveling on already existing, well marked trails in the rugged terrain of the highlands, on unpaved roads. Creating new trails by driving off-road would be illegal, as it would permanently damage the fragile environment.
