Explore Landmannalaugar Hot Springs & Hekla Volcano via Super Jeep on a journey alive with colours, craters geothermal energy.
Experience the great Landmannalaugar via Super Jeep as you explore Iceland's unique geology - and don't forget to bring along your bathing suit and towel for a dip in one of Iceland's natural geothermal spots.
After being picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavik you will drive through the fertile farm lands of southern Iceland. Soon the snow-covered peak of Hekla, Iceland's most famous active volcano will come 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. You will drive right up to the edge of the youngest lava field formed during the 2000 eruption. If weather permits, you drive up along the volcano's ridge, which is 900 meters above sea level. From this height you will be presented with a splendid view of the surrounding region.
From the base of the volcano you will drive over a truly rugged mountain track past lava fields and explosion craters.
You will then head into Landmannalaugar, traversing a few streams and rivers in your specially designed super jeep. You will make a stop, allowing time for exploring or taking a refreshing dip in the nearby hot springs stream. As you head out of the interior, you will stop off at the explosion crater Ljótipollur. You will then advance down the picturesque Þjórsárdalur and make a stop at the photogenic Hjálparfoss waterfall and take a well deserved break at the highland hotel at Hrauneyjar for coffee. The day in the Landmannalaugar area is a memorable experience and a geological treat.
