Discover the majesty of Iceland's southern highlands and ride through Fjallabak on some wonderful, hidden bridle paths to Landmannalaugar.
Fjallabak Nature Reserve is an area in the Icelandic Highlands surrounding the popular destination of Landmannalaugar, which has been protected since 1979.
The entire area is more than 500m above sea level and characterised by colourful mountains, geothermal valleys and volcanic activity. The colour is due to the rhyolite and obsidian (volcanic glass) making the ground appear green, blue, pink, red and yellow. Riding through these multi-coloured landscapes, towering glaciers and extensive lava fields gives the area a magical feeling. Upon reaching the fascinating area of Landmannalaugar you can enjoy a refreshing bath in its natural hot springs.
Two of Icelands most active and beautiful volcanoes - Mt Hekla and Eyjafjallajokull - tower over the landscape.
This area is perfect for riding since the soft trails of volcanic ash offer excellent ground for the Icelandic horses to demonstrate their unique tolt gait.
