From our Landmannalaugar tour review
We had driven the ring road on our own and wanted one guided tour to see some of the interior. There were a lot of choices but we are so glad we chose Hit Iceland and the Landmannalauger tour. Einar was friendly, helpful and full of information about the country, ancient history to present day. While we would have loved to hike longer, the mix of Einar's driving tour and the 3-hour hike was just right for a day trip. If we come back I would choose Hit Iceland again for sure..
It's unique unworldly beauty is something you have to see to believe and well worth the extra effort needed to visit it. I considered many other tour companies but chose Einar with HitIceland knowing we would have our own guide with us on the trails, adequate time to complete the hiking loop (we're in our mid 60's) without feeling rushed, and since it turned out we were the only people on the tour we didn't have to follow a pre-determined schedule. The additional stops along the way were beautiful as well. Riding in his Land Cruiser was very comfortable (he is a very safe driver) and allowed us time to visit about the history, literature, politics, art, photography and geography of Iceland, all things that Einar has a deep interest in and is very knowledgeable about.
My husband and I along with our son and daughter in law went on the tour. We were celebrating my husband’s 60th birthday and Einar went out of the way to make it a very memorable celebratory day. He was with us hiking, talking and taking pictures for us . He was explaining all about Iceland during our drives continuously. I would highly recommend this tour ! He was very mindful during our hike of each of our capabilities and dealt with patience !
We also take you to unique and mindblowing places that few people visit, or even know about. In the summer months, we take you to locations in the Highland, like Landmannalaugar, Syðri Fjallabak, and Þórsmörk. Landscape gems and places that are only known to the locals and local experts far away from the crowds of mass tourism. Sites that will most likely give you a unique experience that will last for a lifetime. It all depends on your wishes and interests.

A different day tour
If you are planning a short visit, Hit Iceland can organize and set up an itinerary for a day tour that is different. A tour around the Reykjanes Peninsula, a trip to Landmannalaugar in the highland, or a visit to Borgarfjörður to learn about the literary giant, Snorri Sturluson, who wrote many masterpieces in medieval times. It could also be a tour to experience some of the stunning natural wonders near Reykjavík or a trip to some of the spectacular landforms in the highland, like Kerlingarfjöll or Hveravellir, in summer. It could be an intense search for the Northern Lights in winter or finding an ideal location for photography at the time of ultra clear skies of September and October. It is always an adventure.
