Picture a Land Rover Defender with a luxury interior, Wi-Fi, GPS, easy access steps and enough space to comfortably seat 7 people. Add huge metre high oversized tyres and the result is a Superjeep.
These oversized tyres that will allow you to get up close to Iceland’s natural wonders on your own private guided adventure. Travel across barren lava fields, through glacial rivers and to the top of volcanoes in the comfort of these adventure-hardened vehicles, which are specially designed to tackle the rugged terrain.
Surrounded by high mountains, majestic glaciers and birch woods, the Thorsmork Valley’s rough terrain is only accessible in one of these mountain vehicles. An exhilarating ride over coarse terrain and through icy rivers will bring you to the Gigjokull glacier, where powerful glacial floods escaped during the 2010 eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano. You’ll have plenty of opportunity to explore the valley’s extreme nature on foot, with light hikes to hidden waterfalls and ice caves.
A super jeep tour of Landmannalaugar’s rugged volcanic landscape is just as dramatic. Travel across lava fields, black ash and scoria deserts to the base of Hekla volcano, where black ridges contrast with colourful mountains of green, red, yellow and orange. Take a walk amid the otherworldly scenery before a soothing dip in one of the natural hot springs.
It is fun, exciting and thrillingly beautiful and if you’re feeling adventurous, let us arrange an introductory lesson so you can experience first-hand what it is like to drive them.
