We start off from Reykjavík and drive through the fertile farmlands of southern Iceland. Soon the snow-covered peak of Hekla, Iceland’s most famous active volcano, comes into view. Hekla was notorious in medieval Europe as it was believed to be the entrance to hell. Hekla has erupted approximately 20 times since the county was settled in the ninth century.
The variations in the lava and vegetation shaped by the forces of erosion create a spectacular setting for the volcano. We drive up to the vicinity of lava field formed during the 2000 eruption. If weather permits, we continue our climb up to 900 meters above sea level to a beautiful viewpoint. From this height, we can enjoy a splendid view of the surrounding region.
From the base of the volcano we drive over a truly rugged mountain track past lava fields and explosion craters.
We then head into Landmannalaugar traversing a few streams and rivers in our specially build super jeep. We will stop allowing time for exploring or a refreshing dip in the nearby hot springs stream. As we head out of the interior, we visit the explosion crater Ljótipollur. Then we advance down the picturesque Þjórsárdalur We’ll make a stop at the photogenic Hjálparfoss waterfall after making a pit stop for coffee and a short break. The day in the Landmannalaugar area is a memorable experience and a geological treat.
What to bring: Warm outdoor clothing, waterproof jacket and pants, headwear and gloves. Good hiking shoes are recommended.
Optional: Bathing in a natural warm pool at Landmannalaugar. Remember your bathing suit and a towel!

First of my 3 adventures booked with Arctic Adventures and wow what a day. Just 5 of us in the huge super jeep with a wonderful local guide, who was so generous with his knowledge added with great humour. Plenty of time to explore absolutely everything and more. Highly recommend this tour in a ever changing landscape – so good!
