This is much simpler than it sounds. Once you own Horizons you can land on any planet with the blue indicator on it. Additionally, bodies you can land on have a blue lander icon next to them in your Nav menu.

Once you land (take it slow!) you get credit for this. To increment it quickly, simply take off and fly to 2KM or higher (there's a line on the indicator for this height) and then land again. Rinse and repeat! I used that method to unlock:

* Twobby pointed out that if you want to have a bit more help touching down, you can do this at a planetary base with a docking computer as well.

* StulockHolmes notes that the new SRV training mission allows for this to be done simply as well. You are already just above the ground and just need to touch down and restart the mission until the achievement unlocks.
