The Golden Circle Super Jeep Safari

Here you will  see for yourself one of only two tectonic rift valleys in the world, created as the continental plates slowly drift. Þingvellir is also the only UNESCO‘s cultural world-heritage site in Iceland. From there trail lies behind the picturesque shield volcano Skjaldbreid and along our second biggest glacier, the Langjökull glacier. After about a two hours drive on mountain trails and some river crossings we get back to normal roads again just above Gullfoss waterfall. There will be a short stop to take a look at the spectacular waterfall before driving to the Geysir hot springs which are only 10 km down the road. At Geysir you will see a variety of geothermal pools and erupting hot springs, surely one of the highlights of any visit to Iceland.

Landmannalaugar Super Jeep Safari
Experience the great Landmannalaugar interior with a pro at the wheel of your super jeep! On this tour we will explore Iceland’s unique interior which is a paradise for geology enthusiasts and visiting hikers. First you will visit one of Iceland’s most famous active volcanoes, Hekla. This volcano was notorious in medieval Europe as it was believed to be the entrance to hell. Hekla has erupted approximately 20 times since the country was settled in the ninth century. Then you drive drive right up to the edge of the youngest lava field formed during the 2000 eruption. Then you head into Landmannalaugar traversing a few streams and rivers on our specially build super jeep. The super jeep will stop allowing time for exploring and a refreshing dip in the nearby hot springs stream. As the jeep heads out of the interior, you visit the explosion crater Ljótipollur and stop at the photogenic Hjálparfoss waterfall. The day in the Landmannalaugar area is a memorable experience and a geological treat. Don’t forget to bring along your bathing suit and towel for a dip in one of Iceland’s natural geothermal pool. 

Northern Lights Hunt
Your pick up will arrive at your hotel in the shape of an enormous super- jeep with an expert guide at the wheel. The trip starts by exploring the hidden world in and under the lava field located in the Blue Mountains. Walking down into the lava cave and discovering the marvels that volcanic activity has created in the past is a trip that everyone can undertake and enjoy. Next you head on to Rauða Húsið restaurant in Eyrarbakki village on the south coast where a two course dinner (350 gr. lobster and dessert) is waiting for us. Rauða Húsið is one of Iceland’s most renowned seafood restaurants especially famous for its lobster dinner, located 60 km from Reykjavík surrounded by the pitch-black Icelandic winter night. From there our hunt continues. The Auroras can only be seen far away from the city lights but from Eyrarbakki is not far to travel until the mountains provide the shadows needed. On cloudless and clear winter evenings, with luck on your side, you may be able to spot this beautiful and elusive natural phenomenon. Vivid and bright, the dancing Northern Lights in the Arctic skies are a sight to remember.
Only available in the winter (Septemter – April)
