A remote encampment consisting of a campsite, and accommodation hut as well as basic amenity huts including an excellent shower block and a small shop. The camp is surrounded by mountains and is backed by a massive rhyolite volcanic rock cliff which shelters it although it is still very exposed - take heed of the piles of rocks for anchoring tents that are kept in large wooden boxes or "rock corrals". Many volcanic phenomena can be seen in the area. Landmannalaugar is part of the Fjallabak Nature Reserve.
