This unique part of the highlands is one of Iceland’s most awe-inspiring places. Among its main characteristics are the colourful rhyolite mountains with their varying textures, shapes and sizes, and the wonderful natural hot springs, perfect for soaking in after a day of hiking.
En route there we drive through Þjórsárdalur valley, with its stunningly diverse and colourful landscapes, and visit a reconstructed medieval farmhouse. Here we also have a fine view of Mt. Hekla, Iceland’s best-known volcano. Enjoy the tranquil silence, peace and scenery of these spectacular and magical surroundings.
