Super jeep tours & safaris
Super jeep tours & safaris There are quite a few places in Iceland, off the ring-road, both in winter as well as summer, that travelers can only reach by the special heavily-modified vehicles that are unique for Iceland. These are 4-wheel-drive Super Jeeps and Super Trucks with tires that in dimension reach from 38-46 inches. The large tires give them high clearance from the ground and increased flotation, making them ideal for driving in heavy snow, on glaciers and on very rough terrain. Some travelers in summer as well as in winter choose to travel in super-jeeps even their whole journey, but others pick certain tours and/or routes for this special experience. On all the offered tours the jeeps are driven by an experienced driver and guide who knows the abilities but also the limits of these impressive vehicles. These are men who know how to have fun off the beaten track without harming the fragile Icelandic nature.
The options for tours and safaris to choose from are numerous and most of the tours take visitors off the beaten track experiencing glaciers, lava plains, pristine snow fields and/or river crossings, all from the safety of the vehicle. There is also a variety of extra highlights, activities and leisure to be included in the tours. These depend on the age of the travelers, the chosen route and the clients´ interests and preferences. Just to mention a few activities: Snorkeling or diving in Silfra, snowmobiling on a glacier, exploring lava caves and bathing in a natural geothermal hot spring.

Tours leave from their base, going up the mountain to the Myrdalsjokull glacier 1.500 meters high and to the caldera of the volcano Katla that lies under 750 meters of thick ice. On the way there are stops at the most scenic points for a break and photographing. Adding another hour, the route continues down to the black volcanic beach, crossing small rivers all the way to the Atlantic Ocean where during summer time travelers experience the rich bird life in the area.
These super-jeep vehicles take you where the tour companies simply can´t go, including the most promising places when searching for the elusive and majestic Northern Lights.
