Come along on an adventure to the highlands on this private super jeep tour. Travel through lava fields, past colourful mountains and take a dip in the natural hot springs of Landmannalaugar on this immersive day tour.

Landmannalaugar is at the edge of Laugahraun lava field, which was formed in an eruption around the year 1477. The area is known for its surrounding landscape of rhyolitic mountains that change colours with the sun's rays, and natural geothermal hot springs.

You and your favourite people will be picked up in Reykjavík by a large super jeep, a modified 4x4 car built to handle the rough Icelandic roads. Your journey starts with a drive along the South Coast before heading into the highlands.

First stop is Hekla, the Queen of Icelandic volcanoes. During the Middle Ages, Europeans called this volcano the "Gateway to Hell". After standing on top of Hekla and admiring the South Coast and highlands, you'll continue your journey, driving through a lush valley and striking scenery.

The way to Landmannalaugar is dotted with beautiful black sand deserts, extinct calderas and amazingly green plains. We arrive in Landmannalaugar for a quick dip in the hot springs or a short hike up the surrounding mountains.

Your journey doesn't end there because you'll get back in the super jeep and head straight to the next stop of the day, Ljótipollur crater. The crater's name means 'Ugly Puddle', however, it is anything but. It is crimson red with a deep lake at its bottom, filled with trout, and high edges on its sides.

From there, you'll start making your way towards Reykjavík, but not before stopping at one of the country's most beautiful waterfalls, Hjálparfoss.

Discover Iceland's hidden gems, and do so in style and comfort with this private super jeep tour to Landmannalaugar. Check availability by choosing a date.

Reviews

This tour was fantastic, and it was just us - no additions to the group. Einar was a great guide! He gauged our sense of adventure at the beginning of the day and then tailored the tour accordingly. The road to Ljotipollur was still blocked off so we couldn't get up close this time. Hekla was also pretty socked in with clouds and changing weather, so we only saw it from afar as well. Despite these hiccups, the rest of the day more than made up for what we couldn't experience. We even got to see a few things not on the general tour to make up for what we missed.
