The day begins with a drive to the rock ledge Gaukshöfði. There, you have a good view towards the active volcano Mt. Hekla and over the valley Þjórsárdalur, which became deserted in the year 1104 following one of Hekla's eruptions.
 
The drive continues to the waterfall Hjálparfoss and to Þjóðveldisbær, a reconstructed Viking-era farmstead modelled on the medieval farm Stöng which is located a little further up in the valley of Þjórsárdalur. The next destination is the Interactive Energy Exhibition at Búrfell Power Station. The exhibition shows how renewable energy in Iceland is produced and invites visitors to look into the future and at the possibility of harnessing power from geothermal, wind and sea sources. 

From there, the drive continues up to the highlands towards Ljótipollur ('Ugly pool'), a crater formed in a 15th century eruption, and then to Landmannalaugar where you can bathe in the natural hot river or go hiking, as you wish.  
 
Once you feel energised enough to move on, the drive continues down Dómadalur, a lush valley just north of the volcano Hekla, and ends at Lambastadir Guesthouse.  
 
Landmannalaugar
is a popular hiking hub in Iceland's highlands and known for its beautiful and unusual geological elements, like the multicoloured rhyolite mountains and expansive lava fields. The many mountains in the surrounding area display a wide spectrum of colours including pink, brown, green, yellow, blue, purple, black and white. The road to Landmannalaugar is only open during the summer months and is only for experienced drivers of 4x4 vehicles.
