Sunrise at Landmannalauger

Sunrise in Landmannalauger at around 05:30 am. This is one of the must stunning landscapes I have ever seen. Accessible in the summer months this area near the Volcano Hekla, is in the highlands of southern Iceland.

The mountains are given colour from the large array of minerals that can be found in the area. Hiking here is unlike anywhere I have been before and the best thing is at the end of the day you can bathe in the natural geothermal springs to unwind. I will never forget arriving at 11pm in middle of summer and the sun still on its way down. We took our duty free gin into the river and watched the sunset only to rise minutes later. I think we bathed in the river till 7am, a whole 8 hours 🙂 A truly beautiful place….
