A fantastic 2 day Arctic Truck adventure to the mountain gem Kerlingarfjöll. We will visit interesting sights before we hit the mountain road that leads us to one of Iceland’s natural pearls, located between Hofsjökull glacier and Langjökull glacier. Arctic Trucks Experience offers guided Iceland tours in the amazing highlands where you do all the driving!
A 2-day trip to one of Iceland’s most loved mountain gem, Kerlingarfjöll. Within the area around Kerlingarfjöll we have geothermal areas amongst the biggest ones in Iceland, resulting in colorful and breathtaking scenery! If conditions allow us we will visit Hveravellir geothermal area and have a swim in a natural hot-spring!
After a quick briefing at the Arctic Trucks headquarters you will know the basics of the car and will be able to tackle the diverse conditions you will face over the next two days. With the power of the Arctic Truck in your hands we depart from Reykjavík.
On our way we will visit some interesting sights of the Golden circle such as the Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir area, the hot-spring Strokkur spouts water many meters up in the air! After enjoying these great wonders, we arrive at Kjölur. Kjölur mountain-road is a challenging road that goes in between two glaciers, Hofsjökull glacier and Langjökull glacier. Kjölur has everything that a mountain driver needs and you really get to test the modified super jeep. For those who seek more action they have the option of snowmobiling on Langjökull Glacier!
With resourcefulness, cleverness and the great capacity of the Arctic Truck you will drive to the mountain hotel in Kerlingarfjöll, where you have a room with private room with made up beds. Kerlingafjöll is a mountain cluster, rising 500 – 700 meters above surrounding central highlands plain. After taking in the beauty of Kerlingarfjöll area we will enjoy a dinner in the mountain huts restaurant. In the winter time, Kerlingarfjöll is a great area to see the magical Northern lights dancing in the sky.
In the morning, we will pack up our gear and leave this mountain paradise. If conditions allow us we will visit Hveravellir geothermal area and have a swim in a natural hot-spring! The road is challenging so it will take some time to get back to the main road. After we have conquered the Kjölur mountain road once again we will head back to Reykjavík, stopping at interesting sights depending on conditions. We should arrive back in Reykjavík in the afternoon, just in time for a lovely dinner in some of the great restaurants in Reykjavík.
