On this one day volcanic tour, we head off on the Arctic Trucks for the rough tracks of Reykjanes peninsula, one of the most active volcanic areas in Iceland. We will invite you to tackle steep inclines, rutted tracks, specific terrains and see some amazing moon like landscapes! Arctic Trucks Experience offers guided Iceland tours in the amazing highlands where you do all the driving!
We start off from the Arctic Trucks headquarters where we take the Arctic Trucks east towards Hellisheidi plateau and the geothermal power plant Hellisheiðarvirkjun. The power plant is the third largest one of it’s kind in Europe and provides the capital region with the majority of it’s power! We drive through a challenging mountain track, called the 1000 River roads where we cross several unbridged rivers and through beautiful mountain ranges. You truly get to test the power of the Arctic Truck and develop your skills as a truck driver!
From the 1000 river road we head to the Blue mountains and take a mountain road through Breiðdalur valley for some real Arctic Truck adventure, the guide teaches you all you need to know for driving an Arctic Trucks in the Icelandic highlands.
Next, we’ll stop to take a look at the panoramic view of a beautiful volcanic landscape at Kleifarvatn lake. The moon-like surroundings of the lake area never fail to leave a strong impression on our visitors. We will also visit the geothermal area of Krýsuvík where we take a short walk among the boiling hot springs and explore the unique and multi-colored hills.
