Embark on this Super Jeep tour up Skálafellsjökull Glacier for a unique chance to experience the roads less travelled, on this adventure ideal for everyone who wishes to get up close and personal with the Icelandic mountains.

The tour departs from a meeting point between the town of Höfn and the renowned Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon. From there, you will venture up the steep mountain road to admire the breathtaking view of Kálfafellsdalur Valley.

The fantastic abilities of these brand new Super Jeeps enable you to go beyond the limits of the Ring Road and F-roads, to experience the more desolate wonders of the island of ice and fire.

You will make several stops en route to admire the sceneries at hand; you might just recognise some of the landscapes as belonging to blockbusters such as Batman Begins, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. You will also stop to admire a hidden gem that any fan of HBO's Game of Thrones is sure to take as a treat.

As you reach the altitude of 1.500 metres above sea level, you will take in the view of Vatnajökull, Europe's largest ice cap, from the summit of Brókartindur. On clear days you will also catch the appearance of Þvetártindsegg, the highest mountain peak in the south of Iceland.

One of Vatnajökull's many outlet glaciers is Skálafellsjökull, the destination of your venture. Get ready to shoot across the snow from the comfort of your Super Jeep, as you admire the landscape of the glistening ice formations.

Don't hesitate in booking this tour for a unique experience in the mountains of South Iceland, and see for yourself why the place is called the Icelandic Himalayas. Check availability by choosing a date.
