Discover the magnificent Eyjafjallajokull glacier volcano by booking an exciting winter super jeep tour from Hvolsvollur. Those eager to ride across the snow-covered terrain of an infamous volcano from the comfort of a super jeep should book this tour now.

Your tour starts in Hvolsvollur town in South Iceland. Pickup is available from your accommodation in Hvolsvollur or Hella, or you can make your way to the meeting point and enjoy a cup of coffee while you wait for your tour to depart.

The journey begins as you depart in a comfortable super jeep. As you set off through the spectacular South Coast countryside, you'll see today's destination, Eyjafjallajokull volcano, ahead. 

Eyjafjallajokull is a volcano with an ice-capped caldera, a hollow similar to a large crater that forms after a volcanic eruption. The Eyjafjallajokull volcano made headlines with its 2010 eruption, severely disrupting flights throughout Europe and further afield.

For over a month in 2010, this 5400-foot (1650-meter) volcano put on an impressive display of ash plumes and flowing lava. In this tour, you'll be able to traverse the beautiful snow-covered landscape around Eyjafjallajokull.

The exact journey depends on snow and weather conditions. In any case, you'll explore Gigjokull, one of Eyjafjallajokull's two main outlet glaciers, which plunge down the hills near Thorsmork Valley.

A flood from the Eyjafjallajokull eruption dramatically changed the landscape at Gigjokull, causing an entire lake to disappear! You'll have plenty of time to get out of the jeep, take photos and appreciate the scenery.

The scenery from the top is exceptionally breathtaking on a clear day. As you stand and appreciate the rugged terrain covered in a vast, white blanket, you may be able to see some far-off destinations.

Check out the surrounding glaciers, the black sand beaches stretching along the coastline, and the Westman Islands off Iceland's South Coast.

This super jeep tour is an incredible way to get up close to nature and feel the thrill of an offroad adventure. You'll stay warm, dry, and comfortable as your driver takes you across wild terrain, even fording unbridged rivers.

Big wheels and excellent suspension make your vehicle perfectly equipped to travel on the harshest ice, snow, and water-covered landscapes safely.

Don't miss the chance to cross landscapes unreachable in a regular four-wheel-drive vehicle by booking this seven-hour winter super jeep tour of Eyjafjallajokull glacier volcano. Check availability now by choosing a date.
