Small-Group Landmannalaugar Super Jeep Tour from Reykjavík
The tour will be guided by a professional geologist, which gives you the opportunity to explore the breathtaking landscape from a different and unique perspective. We will drive in a modified Super Jeep which makes the whole tour a special adventure. This tour will give you enough time to enjoy the beauty of Icelands highlands without being tied to a tight times schedule.
Our first stop is marking the beginning of the highlands of Iceland. In the shadow of the impressive volcano, Hekla lies the beautiful Waterfall Hjálparfoss. The rivers Fossá and Þjórsá fall at a 45° angle to each other into the same lake and form a magical place, which is surrounded by impressive basalt columns. Just downstream from Hjálparfoss you will get a view of Iceland's second-largest hydroelectric power station, Búrfell.
Just a few kilometers upstream of Hjálparofss we will find another impressive waterfall of the highlands. The Fossá river falls over 120m down into a canyon and forms one of Iceland's highest Waterfalls. The breathtaking view down the riverbed will show us also a second waterfall Granni, right next to Háifoss. In the colorful layers of the canyon, we can see how huge eruptions in the past formed the landscape of the highlands.
The most beautiful “ugly puddle” in Iceland. This explosive crater formed during an eruption a few hundred years ago and shows impressively the forces of nature. The different colors of this place make it the perfect photo location. The red lava rock, the green moss, and the blue water of the lake form an impressive contrast.
Landmannalaugur is one of the most famous hiking areas in Iceland's highlands. Here we will go on a small 2 – 3 hours hike and explore the breathtaking landscape. Geothermal hot springs and different mineral deposits in the lava rocks form colorful mountains, which form a nearly unreal scenery. You will feel like hiking on a different planet. During the hike, we can discover many geological features of this magical place. And don't forget your swimsuit, after the hike we can relax in one of the Hotsprings and enjoy the evening before we drive back to Reykjavik.
The Tour highly depends on weather and road conditions and is only offered between the 15th of June and the 15th of September (This can change, depending on road closures).
