Description of the tour
We head towards Hekla, the most famous of Iceland’s volcanoes, with its perpetually snow covered peak. In the Middle Ages Hekla was thought to be one of the entrances to hell and lived up to this reputation by erupting over 20 times after the settlers arrival to the island.
Along the foot of the volcano, we continue through extensive lava fields, explosion craters and hot water springs. On our way to the Torfajökull glacier, the most geothermally active area of Iceland, you’ll see spectacular panoramas of the mountainside and from the top you’ll have a view over eight surrounding glaciers … if weather permits. We’ll then descend into Landmannalaugar, crossing several rivers on our way. Stop for a soak in a pleasant hot water river before our last stop at the Ljotipollur crater and its multicoloured cliffs. By the end of the day, you will have loved this unforgettable excursion, a unique geological discovery and a real four wheel drive experience!

Period : This excursion can be undertaken from June 15th to October 15th on fixed departure dates and with a minimum of 2 participants and is dependent on the accessibility of the interior roads.

On other weekdays, departures are upon request only, with the price depending on the number of participants.

In winter, departures are upon request only, price depending on the number of participants. Conditions can be much rougher in winter and final itinerary depends on these conditions.

From mid-April to mid-June: This area is closed most of the time to any kind of traffic during the spring thaw period.

A Super jeep is originally a 4WD vehicle or mini-van,that has been modified in local workshops following very strict regulations. Usually a Toyota Land Cruiser, Nissan Patrol, Land Rover Defender, Ford Econoline or a Ford Excursion.

Sitting on wheels from 95 to 120 cm off the ground, they are equipped to handle any challenges the intense and unpredictable Icelandic road (and off road) conditions throw their way.

All sorts of modifications must be made in order to install these titanic tires under the vehicle. The original bodywork must be reshaped, more changes need to be made to ensure traction in the deep snow and steep slopes. The gearbox needs improvement to adapt to the greater diameter of the monstrous tires. Most have additional tanks to go on long forays into the central highlands where fuel is scarce. All are equipped with GPS, VHS radio and telephones to optimize safety in the untamed and stunning wilderness.
