The Iceland Touring Association first built a hut in Landmannalaugar in
1951, but the present hut dates back to 1969. The huts are
located about 600 metres above mean sea level at the edge of the
lavafield Laugahraun on a few hot springs, which create excellent
bathing conditions in a natural brook.
The dwelling hut is two storeys high. The ground floor comprises
a spacey entry, a large sleeping hall, a kitchen, the warden's
quarters and a storage room. Upstairs are three large sleeping
rooms and one small. The house is heated the whole year round
and gas is used for cooking. All neccessary appliances are in
the kitchen. Outside is a large house with WC and showers.
The camping site is to the northeast of the houses.
Landmannalaugar is either the beginning or the end of the hiking trail
to or from Thorsmork. All around the houses are unbelievably
beautiful hiking trails, short and long.
The telephone number of the hut from July 1st to September 30th is:
