Under The Volcano | Super Jeep Tour from Vík

Iceland has 13 amazing glaciers just waiting for you to discover! And good news… You'll have an exclusive opportunity to explore a hidden side of one of the most powerful subglacial volcanos in the world, Katla. It’s truly one of the most powerful of Iceland’s 125+ volcanos. Katla currently lies dormant beneath the Mýrdalsjökull Glacier.

This tour takes you right to the foot of the glacier, a place virtually untouched by man, surrounded by magnificent landscapes, distinctively shaped mountains, interesting textures and awe-inspiring colours within this incredible glacier area. We want you to experience the Vik area “like a local” so we take you to the offbeat areas that won’t be frequented by tour buses.

During your adventure with us, you will visit Reynisfjall Mountain, where you can see Reynisdrangar basalt rock formations (or “trolls”, as legends claim they are) from above. You’ll be able to look down at the public beach below and be amazed at how small the people are because you are so high up! Those formations are one of Iceland’s most-photographed and picturesque sites, but you get to see an exceptional side of it! Lucky you!

The Mýrdalssandur Desert is next on our quest together. It is a mysterious and exciting area to drive through. As a bonus, we also visit a historical mountain hut that is alleged to be haunted and the Hjörleifshöfði plateau mountain, which is an area immortalised in countless films, TV advertisements, and music videos. After ample time at those locations, we end our journey together at a stunning waterfall that emerges from the ice at the foot of the glacier. Along with that, you’ll be awed by the breathtaking 360 vivid views. What more could you ask for?

So come along with us and we dare you to explore “like a local!”.
