Landmannalaugar (Icelandic pronunciation: [ˈlantˌmanːaˌlœiːɣar̥] (listen)) is a place in the Fjallabak Nature Reserve in the Highlands of Iceland. It is at the edge of Laugahraun lava field, which was formed in an eruption in around 1477. It is known for its natural geothermal hot springs and surrounding landscape.

Landmannalaugar is the northern end of the Laugavegur hiking trail and the Iceland Touring Association operates a mountain hut with accommodation for hikers. During the tourist high season a small shop and a horse tour agency operate there, as well as the ICE-SAR highland patrol in Fjallabak. Several bus companies have regular trips to and from Landmannalaugar during the tourist season.
