Early pick up from the accommodation at 7:30. Leaving Reykjavík we head east on the road towards Hellisheiði. After passing the village of Selfoss, we push north-west into Iceland’s interior, in the direction of the Atlantic rift. This road, the only road to the mountains that is cleared of snow, brings us to Landmannalaugar where our vehicle drops us off. After getting our luggage into the hut we put on our skis. Our path takes us to a nearby mountain Reykjakollur. On our way, we will explore beautiful hot springs in the foothills of the mountain. When back at the hut the geothermal hot pool awaits us just a few dozen meters from the hut.

I wouldn’t change anything about my tour. It was really perfect...Ivar, our guide, was one of the best because he really knows the area and the region really well, and he explained and it was really one of the best ski trips I have ever had.
