Witness the diverse attractions of West Iceland on this specialised super jeep tour, exploring continental fissure zones, natural hot springs, beautiful waterfalls and the insides of a glacier. If you’re looking for a rewarding and comprehensive sightseeing adventure on a day away from Reykjavík, this is it.

Your journey begins as you get picked up in Reykjavík City, meet your experienced local guide and board your fireball transportation―a specially modified super jeep capable of trekking Iceland’s rough terrain, ice-capped surfaces and mountainous gravel roads.

Then, you will head on through Þingvellir National Park en route to the highland road of Kaldidalur Valley. Driving through this stunning continental rift valley, one of the main attractions of the famed Golden Circle route, you’ll notice the earth pulling apart at its seems, through the visible cracks and fissures of the great Almannagjá Gorge.

As you leave behind the roads paved and venture into the Highlands, hold on tight as you start crawling up one of Iceland’s largest glaciers Langjökull. This venue is the only place in the world where civilians can enter through a man-made ice tunnel, and so can you if you opted for this extra during your booking process.

Go back in time as you enter through the millennia-old ice to witness the frozen wonderland within, reaching the bluest of ice buried deep beneath the surface. Inside, you can learn first-hand all about the history of this magnificent natural marvel, and take unique photographs of the Arctic setting all around.

After this incredible adventure, you will board your vehicle again and make your way to fjord Borgarfjörður, with your first stop being the scenic cascade of Hraunfossar Waterfall. This series of falls tumble over ledges of smoothed lava rocks into the glacial river Hvítá.

Continuing along the scenic fjord, you’ll also be visiting not one, but two impressive hot springs. One is Snorralaug in Reykholt, a place swept with history as this hot pool is the oldest man-made facility of its kind in the whole country, where local chieftain and poet Snorri Sturluson used to bathe in between writing the Icelandic Sagas.

The other is Deildartunguhver, not fit for bathing since, with a flow rate of 180 litres of boiling water per second, it is the hot spring with the highest flow in all Europe. Tread carefully and heed the warning signs, for here the Earth is busy demonstrating its great natural powers.

Before heading back to Reykjavík, you will get the chance of exploring the fjord Hvalfjörður, site of historical World War II remains, as well as landscapes fit for the picture books.

Don’t miss out on your West Iceland adventure now, where you’ll witness a diverse array of Iceland’s attractions onboard a modified Super Jeep. Check availability by choosing a date.
