Iceland Bláhnúkur - Landmannalaugar

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
Bláhnjúkur is a volcano in the south of Iceland. Its height is 940 m.

Its name translates to blue peak in English. This comes from the blue-black colour of its sides. The colour is due to volcanic ash and lava flows.

The mountain is situated in Landmannalaugar, a natural park near Hekla. It lies next to the volcano Brennisteinsalda.

A hiking trail leads up to the top of the mountain from which, in good conditions, five glaciers are visible.
