SuperJeep.is, a leading Iceland tour provider, is now offering tours to the beautiful area of Landmannalaugar in combination with a stop-off at Mount Hekla – one of Iceland’s most active volcanoes.
Before reaching Landmannalaugar, the tour heads to Mount Hekla and then onto Þjórsárdalur, the valley through which Þjórsá, Iceland’s longest river, flows. Following this, tour participants get the chance to visit Ljótipollur, a volcanic crater filled with water where the rusty-red crater walls glisten and sparkle.
Upon arrival at Landmannalaugar, the rhyolite coloured mountains dominate the landscape and evidence of geothermal activity is extensive with lava flows, hot springs, and naturally heated rivers. Participants are advised to bring a swimsuit and take the opportunity to bathe in the naturally heated water before taking a walk through the extensive lava fields that lead to the mountainous slopes. In addition, the tour visits Frostastaðavatn, a beautiful blue lake flanked by moss-covered lava flows and interesting rock formations.
In addition to the Landmannalaugar and Mount Hekla tour, SuperJeep.is offers other guided tours to some of Iceland’s most spectacular sites, including the Golden Circle; Gullfoss, Geysir, and Þingvellir; Þórsmörk, Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Mount Hekla, Eyjafjallajökull, Jökulsálón, and more.
Established in 2002, SuperJeep.is is a family run company that offers unique personalised tours with a friendly atmosphere. The company’s Land Rover Defenders are well equipped for the Icelandic terrain so that the knowledgeable tour guides can take visitors to destinations in Iceland that coaches just cannot reach.
