Super Jeeping in Iceland

Since the introduction of the Jeep Wrangler to Iceland, there has been an all-out national obsession with jeeps. The word for jeep in Icelandic is ‘jeppi’, and since jeeps first accompanied American soldiers to the island during World War 2, Icelanders have customised the vehicles to tackle the challenging terrain of their native land.

As opposed to other countries where highly modified jeeps or “monster trucks” are often intended for flashy ambitions, in Iceland, their value is far more utilitarian in nature.

Super jeeps, or, ‘fjallajeppi’ (translating to ‘mountain jeeps’), are invaluable for reaching impossibly remote locations. In fact, it’s difficult to imagine a better way of exploring and engaging with the raw beauty of Iceland than bounding over magnificent landscapes in a super jeep.

Given the limited number of seats during super jeep tours, you are guaranteed a small, intimate group experience, allowing more time with your guide to educate you about the natural and cultural landmarks you encounter. The reduced number of people on these expeditions inevitably means less time wasted waiting for larger numbers to regroup, maximizing your time enjoying attractions.

Road and weather conditions in Iceland can, at times, be daunting, so why not relax and enjoy a super jeep tour that promises a breathtaking ride. Don’t miss your chance to travel in style and book a super jeep tour today!

Why should I choose a super jeep tour over a bus tour?

Super jeep tours are more intimate and more adventurous than bus or minibus tours. They can also access areas in Iceland that normal buses and mini-buses cannot, such as the Highlands and glacier summits.

Why are super jeep tours more expensive than bus tours?

The cars themselves are both costly to maintain with high fuel costs. On top of that, each car can only carry around six passengers, and the price of the tour needs to cover the running cost of the car, as well as the salary of the guide.

Will we drive off-road on a super jeep tour?

No, it is illegal to drive off-road in Iceland. However, your guide may drive on highland tracks, over ice or snow, on gravel roads and even across rivers. This feels like driving off-road, even though the tracks are designated for such tours.

Isn’t crossing rivers in Iceland dangerous?

Some tours include river crossings; you will, for example, cross a few large rivers to reach Thorsmork. Your driver is very skillful and experienced and will choose the safest way to cross the river.

Do I get to drive the super jeep myself?

On most tours, only the tour guide will drive the super jeep. However, some excursions, like this 10-hour drive a super jeep tour to Thorsmork Valley from Reykjavik, allow those with a driver's license to take the wheel.

How many people are on a super jeep tour in Iceland?

There are a maximum of six travelers in a traditional super jeep tour, plus the driver/guide. For some untraditional tours, in monster trucks and modified vehicles, the number of passengers may be much larger.

Can I book a private super jeep tour and get a customised itinerary?

Yes, please contact info@guidetoiceland.is to arrange a private super jeep tour.

I am a solo traveller and there is a minimum of four participants for this tour. Can I join?

Yes, if the minimum amount of customers for the tour is covered. You can wait for more people to sign up or you can pay for the remaining spots yourself.
