A 2 day Super Jeep adventure to the Landmannalaugar Highland paradise.
We start the tour at the Arctic Trucks headquarters in Reykjavík for a short briefing on the adventures ahead in the next 2 days. The Arctic Trucks Team will teach you how to drive in different conditions, airing down the tires and driving through rivers.
We will be travelling to the most special area our backyard has to offer and will over a wide variety of tracks, through breathtaking mountain ranges. On this day we will visit the Hekla volcano area and Landmannalaugar highland paradise. Mount Hekla is a 1450 meter high and one of Iceland’s most active volcanoes that had its most recent eruption in 2000. During the Middle Ages, Europeans called the volcano the “Gateway to Hell.” We end the day at Landmannalaugar and the comfy mountain hut at the borders of a warm river. The extraordinary colors that surround the hut in Landmannalaugar will leave nobody untouched. After relaxing and enjoying a bath in the natural hot river we head to the hut and enjoy a BBQ leg of lamb.
In the morning we pack all our gear and slowly we head back to civilization, it will take some time to get back to road nr 1. We drive through Hrauneyjar and all the way down to Þjórsárdalur valley. We make some photo stops on the way, first at Háifoss the second highest waterfall of the island that drops here from a height of 122 m.
