Itinerary

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 the lava field formed during the 2000 eruption. From this height, we can enjoy a splendid view of the surrounding region, allowing plenty of time for photos.

We will then get a chance to enjoy the views over Sigöldufoss waterfall, one of the most photogenic places in Iceland with gushing glacier water dropping vertically down from black basalt columns. A true sight for sore eyes! From the base of the volcano, we drive over a rugged mountain track past lava fields and explosion craters. We then head into Landmannalaugar, traversing a few streams and rivers in our specially built Super Jeep. We will stop allowing time for exploring or a refreshing dip in the nearby hot spring 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.
