Description

The Highlights of the Interior Highlands 

Besides being super fun, the best thing about traveling in a Super Jeep is that you can go to places that are inaccessible otherwise. In this case, we happily travel to the middle of Iceland, right to the rift that literally splits this country in two. Because of this rift, we can and will experience Iceland’s unique geothermal activity which is beautifully showcased in areas like Geysir, Landmannalaugar and Askja. We will also travel to natural wonders like the Lake Mývatn area and Dettifoss waterfall. By travelling via Super Jeep, we take the roads less travelled and see a side of Iceland that only few have perspective of. During this tour, we will stay in comfortable hotels and mountain huts. Come see Iceland like never before.
