The Hinterlands

Steaming mountain ranges, turquoise geothermal pools, pristine crater lakes and vast lava fields

The Hinterlands, Iceland Travel Guide

Come for:

  • Rising towers of steam, sky blue hot springs (Hveravellir), remote mountain passes (Kjölur) and volcanic mountain ranges (Kerlingarfjoll)
  • Pristine crater lakes (Öskjuvatn) and turquoise geothermal pools inside the Viti volcano and surrounding Askja caldera
  • The beautiful Fjallabak Nature Reserve including its colorful rhyolite mountain peaks, inviting waterfalls, popular hiking trails and soothing geothermal baths (Landmannalaugar)
  • Vast lava fields and home the Iceland’s most recent volcanic eruption (Holuhraun)
  • The beautifully paired ‘sister’ waterfalls (Háifoss and Granni) along the powerful river Fossá surrounded by expansive mossy terrain

Do not expect

  • An easy drive as roads are mostly gravel and can be challenging with steep inclines and tight bends - renting a 4x4 vehicle is highly recommended (and sometimes required)
  • Accommodations other than a few huts along the main hiking trails and campsites at the base of mountains
