The best way to traverse the rugged terrains of Iceland is in a special Super Jeep.

Come along to the wind-swept coast of western Iceland in a Super Jeep built to handle rough and volcanic terrain, before visiting an otherworldly ice tunnel inside Langjökull Glacier. If you want to witness the wonders of West Iceland in just one day, this tour is for you.

After being picked up in Reykjavík City, you‘ll head into the wild west, beginning with the scenic fjord Hvalfjörður, historically known for massive pods of whales that used to swim in its waters. The fjord was also the naval base for US and British forces where they would meet for convoys before they would move towards Europe's mainland. 

Then, you will continue further west, all the way to the Borgarfjörður district. Borgarfjörður is a place where the water appears deceptively calm, featuring fast-moving currents and swirling skerries. Dotted with uninhabited islands, in the Middle Ages, this was the location of the Saga of Egill Skallagrímsson, one of Iceland's most famous Viking warriors.

Here is where you will find Deildartunguhver, the hot spring with the highest flow in all Europe. Reaching temperatures of 97°C (206°F), clouds of steam billow from the placid surface of the water, mixing with the colder air to create a rare humidity.

You'll also visit one of the most famous farm estates in this area, Húsafell. Located in the midst of a birch forest on the edge of a lava field, this has become a favourite site for camping and hiking, boasting a swimming pool and golf course on site for sports enthusiasts.

Continuing through the countryside, you‘ll enjoy the breathtaking views of Hraunfossar and Barnafossar waterfalls. Once at Húsafell, you‘ll leave the main road behind and hike the Highland trail to Langjökull glacier to reach the ice tunnel within.

Ice tunnels differ from ice caves in that they're man-made and accessible all year round. The tunnel in Langjökull is unique in the sense that you are allowed access, but such sites are usually reserved for scientists alone. 

Inside the glacier, you'll investigate the different layers of ice, compressed by the weight of the glacier and the passing of the ages, as well as witnessing the effects of climate change firsthand.

This lesson will be brought home as you make your way back to Reykjavik on a drive through the sandy plains of Kaldidalur. A desert valley, Kaldidalur is part of Iceland’s highest mountain track on the way to Þingvellir National Park, an area of huge cultural and historical value.

Don't miss out on this sightseeing tour of ice and fire, desert and woodland. This excursion has every enchanting vista in Iceland there is, so don't miss out on this fantastic opportunity. Check availability by choosing a date.
