-Capture the Colours - Laugavegur Fjallabak Super Jeep Tour -

Are you looking for an invigorating Super Jeep drive in the vast highlands of Iceland? 

Do you want to discover Iceland's magnificent highland nature with a local guide leading you to the highlands most scenic spots? 

Then this is the tour for you! Our main focus is on giving you the time you need by visiting various locations leaving you with a diverse range of stunning sightseeing from the highlands of Iceland.

We'll start our Super Jeep Highland tour by driving towards the legendary Hekla volcano or as sometimes called; “The Gateway to Hell”! From there we'll continue on-wards through Dómadalur valley, which leads us to Frostastaðavatn and Ljótipollur, lakes. Only a few minutes away is one of our most picturesque stops, Landmannalaugar. This area is one of Iceland’s most reserved gems with its colorful rhyolite mountains and its geothermal bathing pool bordered by steep black lava fields.

After a good stop we jump back into our super jeep and head to the famous Laugavegur trail. We'll drive down Reykjadalir valley with its interesting geothermal area. Now we start seeing the Mýrdalsjökull and Eyjafjallajökull glaciers emerge. That's a stunning view that you don´t want to miss! As we get closer to Road 1 we see yet another change in the landscape, big ice caps come into view as we arrive at Emstrur hut. These magnificent ice sheets make the perfect panoramic shot! 

As our journey draws to an end, let’s hope we still have some space left on our memory cards as we take our final pictures of Eyjafjallajökull and Þórsmörk valley as seen from the west side of Markarfljótsgljúfur. 


Note: The F roads will lead us directly through the Laugavegur trail itself and in parts a few miles away from it.
