Thrill seekers, this trip in Iceland is for you! Embark on this unique experience that will take you to the heart of remote regions and through a variety of scenery with each one more spectacular than the other! You will travel via super- jeep; a specially modified vehicle to meet both the requirements of Arctic winter and the mountain terrain as well as ensure complete comfort of its passengers. Led by an expert driver, this unique type of vehicle will take you where no other vehicle can venture in winter such as Landmannalaugar, where geothermal areas wage a fierce battle with ice, snow and bitter cold, then the valley of Thorsmork where over millennia; glacial rivers have cut impressive canyons as they make their way to the ocean from the surrounding volcanic glaciers of Eyjafjallajokull and Myrdalsjökull. Immense beaches of black volcanic sand dominate the south coast where the waves of the North Atlantic crash noisily in a thunderous display of nature´s raw power. Also on the menu for this short but intense travel to Iceland are gushing geysers and bubbling hot pools, frozen water falls where nature takes pleasure in shaping superb sculptures of ice and natural hot springs lost in the midst of an untamed nature. The comfort of quality accommodation with a culinary selection that will delight the taste buds as well as the virtual ballet of the aurora borealis at night while enjoying this wonder of nature in the comfort of an outdoor Jacuzzi...

Day 1: Reykjavik - Golden Circle - Hekla Volcano Region (approx. 240km)
Your driver guide will pick you up in the morning at your accommodation in Reykjavík. Then it´s off to the sites of the Golden Circle, the most iconic and essential of Iceland´s attractions: Discover the effects of the oceanic rift at Thingvellir, also the historic site of the Icelandic parliament, the geyser Strokkurat Geysir, gushing up to twenty meters high every 5 - 8 minutes like a metronome and then the great waterfall Gullfoss where the Hvita river has carved an impressive canyon. Then follows the valley Thjorsardalur as we join the foothills of Mount Hekla and our hotel for the night.
Accommodationwith dinner included at Hotel Leirubakki.
Lunch en route (not included).

Day 2: Hekla Region - Landmannalaugar - Hvolsvöllur Region (approx. 230km )
Depart for the highland´s uninhabited and inaccessible regions in winter. Inaccessible? Not for our super jeep vehicles and their experienced drivers! Through snow-covered regions where the track is sometimes non-existent, these machines will lead you to the heart of Iceland´s volcanic land mass-Landmannalaugar. Here, an unlikely swim in a river of hot water is waiting for you! Along the way, discover the Tungnaa River canyon and the explosion craters of Ljotipollur and Blahylur which is one of the largest in Iceland! At the end of the day we take a drive through the southern farmlands to Hotel Selid which will be our accommodation for the next two nights.
Accommodation with dinner included at Hotel Selid.
Picnic lunch included.

Day 3: The Thorsmork Valley (approx. 110km)
This day is dedicated to the exploration of Thorsmork undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and spectacular areas of Iceland. Wedged between three volcanic glacial peaks and carved by ancient ice flows, the beauty this valley is only overshadowed by the massive umbrella of the glaciers. The Thorsmork valley is only accessible by a 4x4 track which is interrupted by many fords, but don´t worry,our vehicles cross these without fear as we take you to discover the landscapes that inspired the backdrop to Tolkien´s novels such as the beautiful waterfall Seljalandsfoss, the glacier tongue Gigjokull and the hidden canyon wonder of Stakkholtsgja. Then of course, the forest of Thorsmork itself, which is likely buried under a thick layer of snow. Here, we will find the foothills of the volcano “Eyjafjallajökull”, the one that, at its last eruption in 2010 was the subject of much talk and for most, impossible to pronounce! (Well, not for Icelanders of course!) On this adventure we may even teach you to pronounce this infamous name! Short hikes will be on offer, including the ascent of Valahnjukur that even though it appears small, offers spectacular views of the entire valley. At the end of the day, we head back to Hotel Selid to relax and enjoy another good meal.
Accommodation with dinner included at Hotel Selid.
Picnic lunch included.

Day 4: South Coast - Reykjanes Peninsula - Reykjavik (approx. 300km )
There are yet more highlights to see before ending our adventure! We begin this final day by exploring the south coast: the impressive 60m high waterfall -Skogafoss, the Reynishverfi beach with it´s cliffs of impeccable basalt formations, not to mention an unforgettable detour through the volcanic sand beach of Skogasandur. Our super jeeps will flirt with the waves of the North Atlantic that sweep away any trace of our passage as we cross vast stretch of this black sand beach. We continue to the Reykjanes Peninsula and the discovery of wild coastlines and lunar landscapes shaped by numerous volcanic eruptions. Here, geothermal energy is manifested in various forms, such as at Krysuvik, where dense vapourstouched with theodour of sulphur escape from bubbling mud pools. After skirting the lake - Kleifarvatn, we reach the end of the day and our journey, the Icelandic capital.
Lunch en route, not included.
