The Landmannalaugar area is a popular tourist destination east of the volcano Hekla. Landmannalaugar are located close to natural geothermal hot springs, also popular with tourists. The area displays a number of unusual geological elements, like the multicolored rhyolite mountains and expansive lava fields which connect to one of Iceland's most active geothermal area. A popular walking path connects Landamannalaugar with Porsmork.
