Description

Explore some of Iceland's most spectacular volcanoes on this incredible nine-hour excursion. Those eager to see some of the most breathtaking landscapes in the country should book this Super Jeep tour now.

The tour begins in the morning with a pick-up from your accommodation in Reykjavik in a Super Jeep. Super Jeeps are 4x4 all-terrain vehicles specially adapted for Iceland's weather and road conditions.

A Super Jeep tour is a fantastic way to see areas of the country that might not be accessible to other vehicles. You'll witness excellent views and experience exciting off-road driving during your tour.

This tour stops at three of Iceland's best-known volcanoes, Kerid, Hekla, and Stora Eldborg. You'll also see black-sand beaches, waterfalls, and lava fields.

The Kerid crater is in the Grimsnes area of South Iceland. Around 3,000 years old, it's relatively new compared with most of the other volcanic craters seen in Iceland, and this newness gives it a beautiful red color.

Inside the crater is a lake filled with aquamarine water. It gets its color from the minerals of the rock surrounding it. The Kerid crater is around 180 feet (roughly 55 meters) deep, 558 feet (approximately 170 meters) wide, and 886 feet (about 270 meters) round. The vivid colors here make for an impressive sight.

Between Kerid and Hekla, your group will stop at the gorgeous Hjalparfoss waterfall. Here you can enjoy nature's beauty and capture shots of a picturesque pair of waterfalls joining at the bottom.

Mount Hekla in South Iceland is one of the most active volcanoes in the country. It has erupted more than 20 times since 874. The name of this volcano means "the hooded one." It gets its name because it's often shrouded in clouds, so you can't see the summit.

Standing at around 4,892 feet (approximately 1,491 meters) above sea level, Mount Hekla dominates the skyline and is visible from all around.

Next, your driver will take you past beautiful black sand beaches to the Stora Eldborg volcano, a circular crater with a narrow lava edge. It's the highest of five volcanic craters on the slopes of the Geitafell mountain in West Iceland. It's thought to have been most active between 5,000 and 8,000 years ago.

Your group will stop at the dramatic Krisuvikurbjarg bird cliffs, a prime spot to appreciate sweeping coastal vistas. You'll also get a chance to enjoy the serenity at Lake Kleifarvatn, the largest lake on the Reykjanes peninsula, and marvel at the steaming landscape at the nearby Seltun geothermal area.

At the end of your tour, you'll be dropped back at your accommodation in Reykjavik, ready to continue your Icelandic adventure or head home.
