This is a unique and unforgettable tour through some of the most rugged terrain in the southern part of the Icelandic highlands. After traveling outside the city limits, we head to the foot of Hekla, where the landscape has been shaped by centuries of volcanic activity. In our modified super jeeps we climb as high as 1000 m (3280’) above sea level on roads that are not accessible to ordinary cars and buses. At this altitude, we enjoy fascinating views over the Fjallabak Nature Reserve and some of Iceland’s magnificent glaciers.* This is one of the largest geothermal areas in Iceland and you will be able to see how fire and ice have shaped the landscape. We continue to Landmannalaugar, part of the famous Laugavegur trail in the Icelandic highlands, where we go for a short hike to enjoy the picturesque nature all around us. A relaxing dip in a warm natural pool is optional before heading back to Reykjavík. The unreal beauty featured on this full day tour tugs on the heartstrings of nature lovers with its an amazing range of colors, steaming hot springs, glacier ice and explosive craters.
