You need the Horizons DLC to be able to land on a planet.

I'm not sure what constitutes a planet side mission because I had done delivery missions to stations on a planet surface and the achievement did not unlock. I'm guessing it was glitched for me at the time, and it may work now, but I do not know for sure.

The way I got the achievement the other day by doing a passenger mission that had me scan a geyser on a planet's surface. I didn't even have to land, and there were other places I had to take my passenger yet but the achievement unlocked. So if anyone is having problems with this unlocking, maybe try a passenger mission.
