Super Jeep tour, small groups, luxury jeeps
A full day super jeep adventure up to the glacier. Stunning scenery including the ice of the great Langjökull glacier and the fire of one of the country's most active geothermal areas. This is Iceland in a nutshell. The tour takes 8 - 9 hours and includes the following highlights: Kaldidalur highland track, Langjökull & Eiríksjökull glaciers, Surtshellir caves, Hraunfossar & Barnafoss waterfalls, Reykholt cultural site, Deildartunguhver hot springs and Hvalfjörður fjord. This is a true super-jeep adventure with spectacular landscapes.
We leave from Reykjavik in a modern and luxury Super Jeep and make our way towards one of Iceland's highest and most austere interior roads, Kaldidalur "Cold Valley". We'll be driving alongside the western part of the Langjökull glacier, pausing to get up close and personal with one of Mother Nature's finest gifts. Depending on time of the year, as well as weather conditions, we put our footprints on the glacial surface.
Next, we head north with a stop at one of this area´s lava tube caves. Centuries ago, caves like this once were inhabited by outlaws! Then we arrive at the breathtaking Hraunfossar waterfalls flowing into the glacial river Hvíta from beneath the tree-covered lava fields.
Leaving here, we'll pass through the historic site of Reykholt, home of Iceland's famous chieftain and historian Snorri Sturluson. Here, Sturluson wrote some of his greatest literature in the age of saga before he was murdered near hot springs that are still used and well preserved.
We visit Deildartunguhver, the largest and most powerful hot springs in the Northern Hemisphere and a source for much of western Iceland's heating needs.
Our trip wraps up in Reykjavik, but not before driving alongside scenic and historic Hvalfjörður fjord.
