Mountains and Canyons in South-East Iceland

Join this superjeep and light walking tour from Höfn to the wonderful countryside of Lón fjords. Our aim is to let our guests feel like they are alone in the Icelandic nature; in an area filled with many natural wonders. 

On this adventurous tour, you discover hidden gems such as waterfalls and colourful mountains, before ending your journey in the fantastic Vatnajökull National Park.

On this tour, you will see areas that not many people have seen. To get to these places; a special car is needed. This is why you'll be riding in a superjeep. The jeep is specially built to handle Iceland's rough terrain.

Departing from the town of Höfn, we will visit the narrow and steep Almannaskarð pass on our way to the beautiful Skútafoss waterfall. From there we will go to Stafafell mountains located in a beautiful and peaceful area surrounded by magnificent nature. 

We will drive to Hvanngil, a deep and stunning canyon by the north end of the Stafafell area. We will traverse mountain roads called 'red scree', and visit a canyon and a waterfall. The canyon is called Grenisgil or 'Arctic Fox Nest Canyon'. 

The area is filled with many photographic gems and magnificent natural colours. It is a very secluded area, so there is a chance you will not see any other people there. 

After about 4 hours of wonderful nature, we arrive in the village of Höfn for lunch, (lunch not included) where you can taste fresh local food. We recommend the lobster. From there, we will take a short trip through the town of Höfn. 

After town trip, we will go to the beautiful glacier lagoon Hoffell; a small and pristine glacier lagoon. This is the perfect end of our tour, where you can enjoy the magic and peacefulness from the glacier before we drive back to Höfn. 

Along the way, there is a chance to we might see reindeer. However, we do not approach them as they are afraid of people. But we will stop if we see them and give ourselves time to admire them. 

So book now to secure your spot on this wonderful trip.
