We will stop for 2-3 hours in Landmannalaugar and you can take a beautiful hike. After about an hour's hike we can unwind in a natural pool or explore the territory on our own before we head back. On our way back we will take the Dómadalur route that takes us through lava fields and between high mountains, there are lots of rivers we have to ford and see some magnificient waterfall.
