Tour Description

geothermal bathing landmannalaugar

Super Jeep Tour to Landmannalaugar's natural thermal pool - paradise on earth

Natural Habitat for Super Jeeps

The route takes us from Reykjavik to Þjórsárdalur valleywhere we stop at Hjálparfoss waterfall, meaning the Helping Falls. This name comes from historical times when travelers arrived at this lush area and their horses could graze and recover.

After Hjálparfoss we'll be leaving the green farmlands of the lowland and we head for the highlands where the stunning wilderness awaits us.

The highlands are the super jeep's natural habitat. Crossing rivers and driving on coarse gravel roads on your way to Landmannalaugar will give you an experience to remember. We will make a stop at Crater Lake Ljótipollur, formed in 1477 and now filled with a cobalt-blue deep lake. We also stop at lake Frostastaðavatn, before we reach our main destination.

Landmannalaugar is a region forged by different and compelling geological elements, such as extensive lava fields and the multi-coloured rhyolite mountains. Awash in a rainbow of colours, the mountains fade from pink to brown and green, with splashes of yellow, blue, purple and black in between.

There is a good opportunity to bring out any lunch-packs or snacks you have upon arrival at Landmannalaugar, before we take off for a short hike. If you prefer you can go straight to the pool for a relaxing bath. After about an hour's hike you can unwind in the pool or explore the territory on your own before we head back to Reykjavik.

On our way back we will take the Dómadalur route that takes us through lava fields and between the mountains, truly a unique scenery. Vikings would drown thieves there in the old days, binding their hands and feet and throwing them into the falls from the high cliff.

Deluxe travel by super jeep into the wild

If conditions allow, we will stop to by volcano Hekla and take a walk in the lava fields. Hekla was nicknamed "the Gateway to Hell" in the Middle Ages, and for good reason – it's Iceland’s most active volcano and she last erupted in 2000.

We head back to the city in the evening sun.

Landmannalangur Super Jeep Tour

This tour is worth the drive! At first, I was wary of spending so much time driving to get to our final destination particularly after spending the previous day on another full day tour. However, our tour guide Johan was great at stopping or calling out from time to time to show us points of interest along the way so that the time passed quickly. Our final destination in the national park was quite remarkable with a landscape, geographic features and views from other world. We enjoyed our hike as well as having a soak in the hot/cold waters (you have to walk through a cold river for a brief period before getting to the hot water). Great tour, great guide. Thanks!

Very beautiful and well organized tour. Awesome topography. Non touristy. Our guide Aaron was terrific. Knowledgeable about region, great sense of humor, presented several options for location visits. We covered a lot of territory and he made the long day fun, educational and entertains. Would definitely recommend. Well worth it!
