A day trip where you drive to Langjokull glacier and go into the glacier to the Ice tunnels, one of the biggest ice structures in the world! Arctic Trucks Experience offers guided Iceland tours in the amazing highlands where you do all the driving!
We start the tour at the Arctic Trucks HQ in Reykjavík and with you behind the wheel on the 38“inch modified Hilux self-drive super trucks we take the road west to Hvalfjörður bay, known for the whale industry and for WW II when the British occupation forces stored their fleets there before crossing the Atlantic Ocean.
From Hvalfjördur bay we take a gravel road over the mountains and then we head to Húsafell. On the way, we stop at beautiful Hraunfossar waterfalls before we grab a light lunch at Húsafell.
The ice tunnel is located in the giant glacier Langjökull, which is the second biggest glacier in Europe with the size of 953sq/km. We head to the roots of Langjökull and there the guide teaches you how to drive in snow or ice conditions on the glacier. We drive almost up the glaciers highest point, with clear skies you have the most amazing views up there. We make a stop on our way to explore the clear blue Ice tunnel. Once we´re inside the glacier you will experience some things like you´ve never seen and probably won´t experience again, blue ice, chapel, bridge over a huge ice crevice and amazing sights that will make your visit to Iceland an unforgettable adventure.
On our way, back to Reykjavik in the afternoon we drive through Kaldidalur (Cold valley) one of the highest mountain roads in Iceland. We study the mountain driving a little more on the super jeep on the way down Kaldidalur. The Cold Valley leads us to Thingvellir national park, home of ancient Icelandic viking parliament that is registered in UNESCO world heritage site. An indescribable nature with the biggest lake in Iceland. We hear about some amazing history and to take a little look around before we head back to Reykjavík city in the afternoon.
