Description

Explore the beauty of Iceland's Highlands with an adrenaline-fuelled super jeep drive through the Landmannalaugar area on this incredible 14-hour tour. Those eager to see natural features like waterfalls, geothermal hot springs, and volcanic landscapes and enjoy an exciting super jeep ride should book this small-group tour now.

The tour begins with pick-up at the meeting point in Reykjavik. You'll meet the expert local guide leading the day's adventures and the rest of the participants. The tour guide will be a professional geologist, meaning they'll be able to tell your group all about the unique landscapes you encounter during the day.

This is a small-group tour with a maximum of six participants. You'll enjoy a personal experience and have plenty of time to admire the sights and ask your guide any questions.

Next, it's time to enjoy your super jeep ride into the Icelandic Highlands. A super jeep is a 4x4 vehicle specially modified with wider tires and higher ground clearance for off-roading and driving over rough, uneven terrain. 

Many of the most beautiful areas of Iceland are inaccessible without a super jeep, so this tour is a fantastic way to experience more secluded regions of the Highlands. You'll drive over rivers and landscapes that standard cars can't manage, with stunning views around you.

The tour's first stop is the Hjalparfoss waterfall, which lies in front of the Hekla volcano. It's the meeting point of the Fossa and Thjorsa rivers. Basalt columns surround it, and visitors can see Burfell, Iceland's second-largest hydroelectric power station, from here.

Next, you'll go to another of the Highlands' most impressive waterfalls, Haifoss. Haifoss is one of the country's highest waterfalls, dropping 394 feet (around 120 meters). From here, you'll also see a third waterfall, Granni.

Another stop on your super jeep tour is Ljotipollur Lake, a crater formed during a volcanic eruption hundreds of years ago. Remember to bring your camera with you — this lake is the perfect spot for a photo opportunity, thanks to its beautifully contrasting colors. Red lava rock, green moss, and blue water make this quite spectacular.

The last stop is Landmannalaugar, one of Iceland's most famous hiking areas. Your guide will lead your group on a moderately challenging three-hour hike so you can get up close to the magnificent landscapes.

After the hike, you'll have time to relax in one of the hot springs in the area before heading back to Reykjavik.
