Super Jeep Expedition to Grímsvötn volcano and the Great Vatnajökull Glacier

Iceland is truly a geological wonder and everywhere you go you can find steaming hot springs and active volcanoes, even in places you would least expect to find such phenomena. On the Ultimate Adventure Tour you will get to experience some of Iceland’s most extraordinary places, the top of the biggest glacier in Europe (where we find the a natural steam bath only a few have tired) that is also the home of Grímsvötn volcano and Landmannalaugar with its rhyolite volcanic mountains and hot baths. During our trip we also take short hikes to get to know the history and geology of Iceland, and visit the world famous hot springs of the Geysir area and the Gullfoss waterfall. On our adventure we travel in Super Jeeps that are specially equipped to handle the Icelandic mountain roads and glacier driving in winter. Driving distances and times will vary from day-to-day, depending upon road and off-roads conditions. Unpredictable weather conditions add to the adventure, so this is a tour for people who dare to face the unexpected! On this ultimate adventure we offer some of Iceland’s best and most experienced mountaineers as guides to take us places that most people never see!
