The ultimate one-day self-drive tour with a minimum of distraction from the real thing, the joy of steering a 38″ Arctic Truck. On this tour, you will see more lava than you’ve probably ever seen before.
You sit behind the wheel on the modified super truck with all its power in your hands! We will be traveling to the most special areas that our backyard has to offer. This is the most ultimate Arctic Truck experience. Deserted tracks in combination with a stunning ruggedness of the surroundings, will result in an unforgettable experience.
You drive the super jeep to Landmannalaugar, a highland paradise where the extraordinary colors of the area leave nobody untouched. On the journey, we drive on mountain- and gravel roads through beautiful landscapes and colorful mountains and cross some rivers. Landmannalaugar offers the most beautiful mountain ranges and a natural warm river that you can take a bath in! After a relaxing and a wonderful bath in the natural warm river in Landmannalaugar we head back normal roads and if conditions are good we pass Hekla volcano. Hekla is a 1450-meter-high, one of Iceland’s most active volcanoes and last erupted in the year 2000. During the Middle Ages, Europeans called the volcano the “Gateway to Hell.”
Depending on conditions your Arctic Trucks guide will decide what tracks are the most fun to drive in finalizing our task for the day, a view of the volcano and a visit to Landmannalaugar.
