Landmannalaugar & Hekla Volcano

Private Super Jeep Tour in tho the Highlands of Iceland

Experience the Highlands of Iceland on this private day tour from Reykjavík City, visiting hot springs, volcanoes, crater lakes and the rhyolite mountains of Landmannalaugar. This super jeep excursion is for all hikers and sightseers looking to behold the most colourful landscapes this island has to offer.

Your experienced local guide will pick you up in the city of Reykjavík, where you will board your modified super jeep and begin your drive through the stunning Icelandic countryside. Before reaching the Highlands, you’ll make your way to Þjórsárdalur Valley to stop at the beautiful waterfall Hjálparfoss.

After having admired these double falls cascading down patterned lava, surrounded by stunning basalt rock formations, you’ll continue your journey into the extraordinary mountainscapes ahead. Arriving at the Fjallabak Nature Reserve, prepare to witness the stretches of the lava field Laugahraun, as you reach your destination of Landmannalaugar, one of the most beloved and renowned areas of the Icelandic Highlands. 

Here, you will get out of your vehicle to fully take in the sceneries around you, but the venue is dotted with scenic hiking trails and geothermal hot springs. The rhyolite mountains all around provide for a kaleidoscopic display of natural wonders, in such an array of colours that they have to be seen to be believed. 

Follow in the footsteps of the first settlers of Iceland, as you bathe in the natural hot springs at hand, recharging after your long journey. Your guide will then lead you to Ljótipollur, an explosion crater lake belonging to the Veiðivötn fissure system, coloured a milky blue against the red backdrop of its caldera. 

After having enjoyed these celebrated Highland attractions, it’s time to get back in your super jeep and head for Mt. Hekla, Iceland’s most infamous and mystical volcano. Your driver will take you approximately 950 metres (3000 feet) up the side of the volcano, capturing the astounding views in every direction.

Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity of seeing the best of the Icelandic Highlands in just one day, with an added excursion up the mountainsides of Hekla Volcano, on a private day tour in a capable super jeep.
