Frequently Asked Questions

About Super Jeep Tours in Iceland

Super jeep tours allow you to reach remote regions that are inaccessible to most vehicles. Most of these tours head into Highland regions such as Landmannalaugar, or up glacier-capped volcanoes such as Eyjafjallajökull. Northern lights tours conducted in super jeeps have a high success rate, as they can easily reach areas where there is no light pollution.

1. What is a super jeep?

A super jeep is a highly modified 4x4 SUV with very large tyres that are specially designed to cross difficult terrain.

2. 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 that normal buses and mini-buses cannot, such as the Highlands and glacier summits.

3. Why are super jeep tours more expensive than bus tours?

The cars themselves are both expensive and costly to maintain with high fuel costs. On top of that, each car can only carry 6 passengers, and the price of the tour needs to cover the running cost of the car, as well as the salary for the guide.

4. Will we drive off-road?

No, it is illegal to drive off-road in Iceland. However, you 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.

5. Isn’t crossing rivers dangerous?

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

6. Do I get to drive the super jeep myself?

No, only the tour guide will drive the super jeep, as no-one else is insured if something goes wrong.

7. How many people are on super jeep tours?

Normally there are 6 travellers in a super jeep tour, plus the driver/guide. This makes a normal tour group consist of seven people in total.

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

Yes, please contact info@guidetoiceland.is

9. 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.

10. Can you put me on a waiting list?

You need to check beforehand if there is space available for your desired dates. Alternatively, you can e-mail info@guidetoiceland.is to see which dates are available during your time here. Unfortunately, we cannot put your name on a waiting list ourselves.

Mystery Super Jeep Tour | South Coast or the Highlands

5 average rating | 5 reviews

Mystery Super Jeep Tour | South Coast or the Highlands

The best Snowmobiling experience of my life! The Midgard people were so kind and fun to hang out with. I've been on many snowmobiling tours in Iceland and this was by far the best one! I could not be happier with my Midgard experience, the hot tub on the roof was amazing with the northern lights. Food was amazing and the sleeping area was cosy. The family feel of Midgard really shines through and they make you feel like part of the family.

Katla Ice Cave Tour | Departure From Vík

Our family of 5 really enjoyed this truly unique experience. Our guide David was very competent and told us lots of funny stories about Icelandic traditions along the way. There was a short hike to the caves. The first was narrow and long and a little tricky to navigate, but no one had any trouble. The second was easier and more open. Absolutely stunning scenery and the caves were amazing. We also spent some time on the open glacier and along the black sandy beach. Great experience, don't miss the unique opportunity!

Northern Lights Hunt | Superjeep Tour

The tour was incredible. Valthor picked me up at the bus station and even called to help me spot him as I was on the opposite end of the block. After a short ride, we parked out in an isolated area outside town and we got to see an amazing ahow. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

Highlands Super Jeep Tour | Langjokull & The Secret Lagoon

5 average rating | 1 reviews

Highlands Super Jeep Tour | Langjokull & The Secret Lagoon

This was a really awesome day. A lot of driving, but Einar our guide made it terrific. We stopped at a number of really cool sights that were not necessarily on the tour but were on the driving route so we stopped for a short look. My two boys absolutely loved the trip, not just the snowmobile and secret lagoon excursions but also getting to each of those locations. The snowmobile adventure was awesome and getting there in Einar's monster truck was just as fun! the roads were closed and impassible for a normal vehicle, but the monster truck with Einar driving took it in stride. The roads were covered in snow and it was difficult to see where to drive but Einar was an expert. Once at our snowmobiling destination we had a blast. There was very little visibility with the blowing snow, but with the guides, our hour on the sleds was great. Not even cold with all of the gear they provide. My son even left his snow pants in the house on the glacier and they brought them back into Reykjavik for us the next day to pick up. Once we left the snowmobile excursion we were off to the secret lagoon but first we had to go back through the snow covered terrain that we crossed to get to the glacier area. Once again, we loved that part just as much in the monster truck. We made a short stop to get pizza on the way to the hot spring. The pizza was very good and the people at the restaurant were super friendly. Then it was off again to the secret lagoon in Fludir. We arrived and it was dark and raining which made it all that much more fun with the cold rain falling as you floated in the 100 degree pool. After an hour at the hot springs we made our way back to our hotel in Reykjavik. Overall I would rate this trip five stars. The kids loved it and so did we. Einar was a great guide and he made the trip as great as it was with his fun personality and humor (and his choice of music while driving). I would recommend this trip to anyone, and if you can, I would ask to have Einar as a guide!!

Ultimate 10 Day Adventure | Highlands in Winter & Ice Caves

Ultimate 10 Day Adventure | Highlands in Winter & Ice Caves

This was an awesome tour. However, the weather doesn't always cooperate and the Landmannalauger tour was cancelled due to storm conditions. Also, we couldn't reach parts of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula due to the weather and we were on Plan X as our guide made sure that we still got to see some pretty awesome things on the tour in place of the things we were missing. We hiked to the top of a crater - it was so windy we thought we would blow off but that was the highlight of the trip for my son. Embla, our travel agent, was great at getting us alternate tours and finding us a hotel room in Reykjavik when the Landmannalauger tour was canceled. Even though we were so bummed it was canceled we knew that that is to be expected with winter weather in Iceland and you just have to go with the flow. I know that Guide to Iceland is just arranging tours for us with other tour companies, which we could have done on our own, but I was sooooo glad we went through Guide to Iceland. We were notified by email that our Landmannalauger tour (scheduled for the following day) was canceled due to weather when we stopped for lunch and had access to wifi. I then forwarded the email to Embla right away. After that we had cell reception and wifi maybe only 10 minutes for the rest of the day until we got back to our hotel at 8pm. If we had booked our tours ourselves, we would have gotten back to our hotel and would have had to find hotel rooms for the following two nights on our own. It was a good feeling knowing I didn't have to worry about it because Embla was taking care of it while we didn't have cell/wifi service. We were still able to do a one day Golden Circle/Snowmobile tour and a one day South Iceland ATV tour of black beach (that was my favorite part of the trip). The ice cave and the snowmobile tours were extremely crowded. I actually enjoyed Snæfellsnes Peninsula a lot because it was very quiet and not crowded. We didn't see one other tour bus while we were up there. All in all a fabulous vacation and I will definitely be back to Iceland. I highly recommend Guide to Iceland.

Ultimate 10 Day Adventure | Highlands in Winter & Ice Caves

Bonjour à tous, Nous avons réservé ce voyage très à l'avance, environ 8 à 9 mois. Le jour J est arrivé et nous avons à fond profité de ce voyage juste extraordinaire. Durant ces quelques jours en Islande, nous avons eu pas mal de malchance. Beaucoup de séjours annulés à cause du temps. Cependant, GuideToIceland a été au TOP ! Notre agent a su tout de suite rebondir sur ces événements et nous trouver des alternatives plus que satisfaisantes. Et oui, on a goûté aux météos Nordique :D Enfin voilà, un très grand merci à cette agence de voyage que l'on recommande fortement ! Professionnel et honnête sont les deux mots qui qualifierait selon nous le mieux GuideToIceland!!

Landmannalaugar & Hekla Volcano Super Jeep Tour

Landmannalaugar & Hekla Volcano Super Jeep Tour

We went to this trip in October, the weather is terrible, windy and cold and rainy. We can not get off the car cause the weather is bad. And when we were arrived to the mountain. It was all covered by the snow so we can't see any color of the mountain. The hot spring is impossible to get in cause the weather is almost 0 degree Celsius. I think this is terrible, do not choose this one in fall or winter.

Thorsmork Super-Jeep Tour | Valley of Thor

We were group of 9 in 12 seat big jeep. The ride was amazingly comfortable and I enjoyed the trip til the very end. When we arrived at Seljalandsfoss, supposedly second stop for us, the guide decided it was too crowded so we kept going and came back in the afternoon when there was not many people. The trip was flexible like this all day and it was really nice to be able to ask questions because it was such small group. Thorsmork was truely amazing place but the other location were also wonderful! In addition to the famous Seljalandsfoss waterfall, we went to a hidden waterfall along a very small river. I really enjoyed this small group guided tour and highly recommend to anyone!

Landmannalaugar & Mt Hekla Jeep Tour

We had a fantastic time on this tour! The guide Ólöf had a fresh and bright disposition, was very knowledgeable, answered a lot of questions and seemed to genuinely like being a guide. Mount Hekla had an amazing view and the hot springs were absolutely perfect with the lovely Landmannalaugar scenery. The sights were absolutely breathtaking and the drive itself exciting and fun! I definitely recommend this tour for those who want some excitement mixed with relaxation :)

Landmannalaugar & Hekla Volcano | Private Super Jeep Tour

This tour was fantastic, and it was just us - no additions to the group. Einar was a great guide! He gauged our sense of adventure at the beginning of the day and then tailored the tour accordingly. The road to Ljotipollur was still blocked off so we couldn't get up close this time. Hekla was also pretty socked in with clouds and changing weather, so we only saw it from afar as well. Despite these hiccups, the rest of the day more than made up for what we couldn't experience. We even got to see a few things not on the general tour to make up for what we missed.
