Extreme Super Jeep Travel
What is special about this tour is flexibility to maximize our chances of seeing Northern Lights. This means that your guide will decide whether we start the tour clockwise, or anti-clockwise. It is very important to have clear skies to see the Aurora Borealis. This of course doesn’t change anything about the things you are going to see, you will just see them the other way around.
To start north means that our first destination will be the Áfangi Hut. A nice hut located next to the famous road 35 or Kjölur. We stop to explore craters, waterfalls and lava fields.
Our next goal is Hveravellir. The huts, located also next to Kjölur and less than 40 km south of Áfangi, are a peaceful place in one of the most beautiful hot spring areas in the world. Nature can be both placid and vigorous here! You can expect powerful demonstrations of the elements and/or calm, quiet weather with glittering snow. Nightfall brings moonlight, stars shining brightly and hopefully the Aurora Borealis decorating the sky.
Hopefully the weather is varied and you get a little of everything. However, we can promise you heated houses, a natural hot pool, great guides, good food, coziness inside – outside you have the wonder of the glaciers, the unspoiled nature, hot springs and a lot of hiking possibilities in the unusual light during the day.
We leave the highlands going south. You will spend your last night in a beautiful guesthouse owned by horse farmers. This is a great opportunity to discover life on a farm in Iceland. But most of all you will meet the unique Icelandic horses and have the chance to ride them.
Mountain Huts and a Horse Farm
Áfangi is a very nice hut with a shower, hot tub and comfortable beds. In September the farmers use it when they are collecting their sheep in the highlands. During winter it's only accessible for real adventurers.
Hveravellir has 3 houses for accommodation. The main hut has a well equipped kitchen, toilets, a bar and 3 rooms. Another hut is ideally located right next to the hot tub.
Geysir Hestar Kjóastaðir is a charming guesthouse on a horse farm. Rooms have an amazing view on the Geysir area in the distance. With a little luck you can see the eruptions from out of your bed.
The huts and guesthouse all have a well equipped kitchen. Our guides, who are as well excellent chefs, will introduce you to the traditional Icelandic kitchen.
You can expect delicious food such as Icelandic lamb, various kinds of fish and our special yogurt called Skyr.
Our guides have a lot of experience travelling in the Icelandic nature. In the highlands, the weather can change quickly and only trained and experienced drivers can drive there. The average temperature in December at Hveravellir has been around -3°C in the recent years, but the frost can take the thermometer down to -20°C. So be well prepared and bring extra warm clothes with you!
This tour gives you the chance to work on your horse riding and hiking skills. Always check with the guides if you would like to go for a hike. They are at all times well informed about weather conditions from one day or time to another. Weather can change in an instant in Iceland so always stay in touch with them.
We observe the Northern Lights whenever they show up!
