Scenic 3-Hour Super Jeep Glacier Tour on Vatnajokull
Ascend and explore the largest glacier in Europe, Vatnajokull, on this thrilling super jeep adventure. If you're looking for an exciting ride through spectacular landscapes, don't miss this adrenaline-fuelled tour.
The tour begins when you meet your guide at a rural base camp in Southeast Iceland. There are a limited number of seats on your super jeep, so you can be guaranteed a personalized experience.
As soon as you board, the adventure truly begins. Riding a super jeep over the rugged terrain of Iceland is an exciting experience and something few get the opportunity to do. At the same time, you'll be able to relax safe in the knowledge that an experienced and highly-trained driver is at the wheel.
You can expect to pass through all of the natural beauty that Iceland is known for, including lava fields, expanses of black sand, and finally, the ice of the glacier. You'll head around 4593 feet (1400 meters) up into the mountains.
The higher you ascend the Vatnajokull glacier, the more impressive the views that surround you. The snowscapes gleam when the sun shines, and an endless world of white appears when clouds drape the sky. You will also notice dramatic ridges, plunging crevasses, and some of Iceland's highest peaks.
Not only that, but you will also witness spectacular panoramas over Iceland's south, east, and highlands when the weather is good. When looking to the east, keep an eye out for herds of reindeer, as they are common in this region.
Your guide will pull up as soon as you are high on the glacier. You'll exit the super jeep to marvel at the views, take incredible photos, and play in the snow. Don't forget to bring your camera with you on this once-in-a-lifetime trip.
As you enjoy the scenery, don't forget to consider what's below you. There are hundreds of meters of ice beneath your feet. In some places, Vatnajokull is around 0.6 miles (one kilometer) thick, a true scientific wonder.
After enjoying the stunning vistas of the glacier, you'll return to the super jeep for an exciting journey back down to base camp.
