Iceland Mountain formation at Landmannalaugar

The versatile mountains of Landmannalaugar offer so many beautiful views like this one on the back of the mountains of the valley. It's one of the most beautiful places in Iceland and it's really hard to transport this extremely beautiful part of the country within the images... I found it even more amazing than the photos I saw before travelling there.

Photography Tips

If you really want to shoot sunsets or sunrises I would recommend you to sleep in a tent at Landmannalaugar because if it's dark the tour back is much too long and dangerous. Another option is to get there during the extreme long summer days and just stay up until it's day again.

Travel Information

Depending on where you come from there are a lot of different ways to get to the valley of Landmannalaugar, but what you need in any case is a 4x4 vehicle. The F208 is pretty easy to drive, but this one is also very slow because of the big rocks on the road, so drive carefully and don't underestimate the time to drive that road... it's longer than it seems, but it's worth the effort for sure!
There is another road from the west you can use when you come from the 26, which is in my opinion much more beautiful, but it's very important that you have a bigger 4x4 for that because you need to get through many rivers and some of them are pretty deep, which varies a lot based on how much it rained or the season itself.
