Day 1

Reykjavik - Hekla

Meeting point: at your hotel 
Departure time: 08:00 
Length of the tour: 12 hours 

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!

Your Super Jeep in details:

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.
