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 meters above mean sea level at the edge of the lava field Laugahraun on a few hot springs, which create excellent bathing conditions in a natural brook.
The dwelling hut is two stories 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 necessary 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: +354 860 3335
Telephone: +354 568 2533
