Visit two of Iceland's most famous volcanoes on this full-day private super jeep tour from Selfoss. Travelers keen to enjoy an offroad adventure and capture the beauty of the Icelandic Highlands should book this adventure tour today.

Your exciting day begins with a pick-up in a private super jeep from your Selfoss accommodation. Super jeeps are modified vehicles designed to traverse the challenging Highlands roads easily. They allow you to explore off-the-beaten-track destinations in comfort and style.

Your experienced driver will take you from Selfoss into the gorgeous Icelandic Highlands. The day's first destination is Mount Hekla, one of Iceland's most active volcanoes. You'll follow rough roads to Hekla, surrounded by stunning scenery.

Hekla is a stratovolcano, almost 5,000 feet (1,500 meters) high. It was nicknamed "The Gateway to Hell" in the Middle Ages, reflecting its unpredictable and volatile nature. It has erupted more than 20 times since settlement.

Despite its explosive history, Hekla boasts gorgeous surroundings. Photographers and nature enthusiasts will love immersing themselves in this natural setting. Your guide will ensure you have time to see Hekla's lava fields and other nearby mountains and capture excellent photographs.

You'll continue onward in your super jeep to discover the Fridland ad Fjallabaki nature reserve. This area is home to the Landmannalaugar mountain range, the starting point for the famous Laugavegur hiking trail.

Wear hiking boots or decent outdoor shoes to enjoy exploring the area. The mountains here are known for their vibrant colors, and you'll quickly understand why Landmannalaugar is one of Iceland's most-loved hiking destinations.

Another highlight of your excursion is visiting Alftavatn lake, a favorite stop on the Laugavegur hiking trail. You can marvel at its glistening water and the serene atmosphere of this beautiful area. Rugged mountains surround the lake and reflect onto its waters, making this another fantastic photo opportunity. 

The day's final Highland attraction is the Maelifell volcano behind the enormous Myrdalsjokull glacier. Its name means "measuring hill" because it helped early Icelanders navigate these breathtaking landscapes. 

Maelifell is a composite cone volcano standing 2,595 feet (791 meters) tall and has spectacular contrasting surroundings. Its pointy peak gives it a striking appearance, and its green slopes stand out amid the black-sand desert around it.

This full-day super jeep tour includes a locally-made lunch. Your tour leader will ensure you have time to stop and enjoy a relaxing experience, savoring the flavors of delicious Icelandic cuisine.

After an unforgettable day exploring some of the best locations in the Icelandic Highlands by super jeep, your driver will take you back to your Selfoss accommodation.
