The hike is pretty easy when the weather is fine. The colour of mountains is unbelievable, the place itself is wonderful. Many thanks to our guide Andrea, she managed to have time for everyone and answer many questions. Tip for Game of Thrones fans: there is a lot of dragonglass there)))

I really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was great. She was friendly and informative, and was really good at giving us plenty of pauses and breaks, since some of us were less fit than others. I wish I could have seen the scenery in the sunlight, but it was still amazing on a cloudy day. The pictures I saw before going looked like paintings, and the place looks like that in real life, too! My whole group had to buy face nets for the midges, though, so you may want to come with one. They weren't so bad the farther we got from the base camp. I highly recommend this hike.

I loved this hike, but the weather did not cooperate. Just to let you know that there is 1 hour and 20 minutes on an unpaved road. The travel to the hike is also part of the adventure.

This was a wonderful experience. The scenery is stunning. Landmannalaugar is one of the most beautiful places on earth. The day we went was raining for a while, then windy, then gale-force winds blew, and finally the sun came out, so we saw the landscape in a range of different lights literally. The most amazing was when a huge rainbow arched over the entire landscape. In addition to the fabulous scenery, our guide, Max, was extremely knowledgeable. He explained the geology clearly, answered all our questions with confidence, and made sure we were safe at all times. At one stage, the wind was blowing so hard that Max advised that we should forego the final ascent to the top of the volcano. We were very glad to follow this suggestion as were already finding it difficult to stand against the howling gale. So Max lead us into a protected area amongst the rocks where we had lunch while we waited for the wind to drop sufficiently to allow us to descend safely. We finished the day in a natural hot pool. By then the wind had dropped and the sun was shining. The perfect end to a perfect day.

Okay, so the actual hike was absolutely breathtaking and incredible!! Our tour guide, Inga, was FANTASTIC!! She showed us so many amazing formations and pointed out scenery, didn't mind us stopping for pictures, and took it slow when some of us including me! were tired out on the uphill areas. She was so friendly...basically...LOVE her!!! The other parts of the tour were a bit...not fun. For instance, I didn't know ahead of time how LONG the bus ride was. It was probably about 4 hours there, and maybe longer on the way back, due to stops along the way to pick up/drop off other people. About an hour of the trip is through a lava field, so it's extremely bumpy. The other part is that there was not food stops. We had brought a lot of snacks with us, because we knew it would be a long day, but on the viator tour site it said that lunch would be provided for us for this tour. In fact, here is the EXACT sentence from the tour website page...On arrival, enjoy a provided picnic and, then lace up your hiking boots to start your hike with your professional guide. Notice, it says PROVIDED PICNIC. There was NO provided picnic. On the way, we stopped at a gas station, and the guides told us that if we didn't bring food, to buy something now because you won't have any given to you once you get there. So, we improvised and bought some gas station sandwiches. This ended up okay to tide us over during the hike, but I devoured all of my snacks when we got back to the camp area. On the drive back, we made NO stops for dinner, and we did not arrive back to the city until past 10:00. By that point we were very tired, and VERY hungry. I hope Viator will take that part off of the website so people know they need to bring A LOT of food!! I'm telling you, after a 4 hour hike, you will be VERY hungry!! If the bus had made a stop at a dinner spot, we would have been much happier! If you go on this tour, bring snacks, and be prepared to get back much later than it says.
