Explore the highlights of the Icelandic Highlands in a day on a guided tour in a 4x4 Jeep. With this small-group tour, visit natural wonders like Askja Caldera, Viti Explosion Crater, Drekagil Gully, Holuhraun Lava Field, Glacier River, and Vatnajökull National Park. Learn about the history, geology, and biology of the region as you travel to each stop.

What to expect?

On this Jeep tour, groups are small and you will enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and have time to enjoy the amazing scenery.

The hiking in Askja Caldera to Víti explosion crater takes around 35 to 45 minutes one way, with its difficulty usually being between easy & moderate (depending on snow levels and weather conditions).

Once at Víti explosion crater, you will take time and absorb the incredible atmosphere of the Askja Caldera. The Holuhraun lava field sits on the floodplains between Vatnajökull Glacier and the Askja caldera mountain range. The rough, untouched and still cooling lava field is Iceland’s youngest lava field, where you'll have an opportunity to explore this amazing world.
