The Hidden Mountains | Superjeep tour from Vík

Have you ever wanted to explore an area that is so secret that it makes you feel like you’re the first to discover it? Like so new that you have the urge to want to plant your own “I was here” flag? Allow us to take you on an unforgettable adventure through some Vik Iceland’s offbeat places! Locations you did not even realise could exist for you to venture to, but now can with the assistance of your guide and a trusty super jeep that can take you almost everywhere.

Visit the hidden mountains surrounding Vík, where you will find very few people but many stories that have been passed down through the generations. This is a very unique experience made possible only with a local guide from Katlatrack. So allow us to entertain you with some stories along the way chock full of folklore and Icelandic heritage, from trolls to outlaws and Vikings to warriors of old. 

From our meeting point in Vík, we will drive down a road that previously served as Route 1 from 1934-1955 and learn more about how it was the lifeline for going east to west. But then a major flood (possibly due to the subglacial Katla volcano) destroyed the bridge. Resulting in the road being moved to its present location. Further into the tour we will venture up into the high mountains, visit caves and learn their about their history.

Then you can try your hand at moving the local legendary “force stones.” A fun stop at a mountain campsite that really only locals use and a narrow canyon with a high waterfall sounds like an ideal day to spend in Iceland! This is the point where we will take a one-hour hike to admire the offbeat waterfall. Please dress in warm layers, bring your hiking boots, and your sense of adventure!
