Landmannalaugar – Hekla Super-Jeep Tour

Mountain roads to Landmannalaugar valley are closed from the middle of autumn and until middle of June, so summer is the perfect time to visit this pearl of Icelandic highlands. We start from driving east through green country side before entering the rough mountain tracks by the foothills of the famous volcano Hekla.  The landscape is shaped by centuries of volcanic activity, the most recent eruption in February 2000. We drive a mountain track in the valley of Domadalur before we, powered by the Super Jeep, climb with us up to around 1000m above sea level where we enjoy a spectacular view of the Torfajokull glacier area, which is the largest high-temperature geothermal area in Iceland.  Weather permitting, we have a panorama of 8 glaciers.  Under and around the icecap of Hrafntinnusker there is substantial number of hot springs constantly shaping the environment; melting snow, making icecaves and supplying water to the glacial rivers. Many different eruptions and the geothermal heat as made all kinds of strange lava formations and colors. This is a deserted land of awesome beauty. We then lower again and take a moment to relax and let it all sink in while enjoying a bath in warm natural pool in Landmannalaugar. On the way back we take a look at the explosion crater Ljotipollur before heading back to the city or to your hotel in the countryside.
