SUPER JEEP TOUR TO THE NEW VOLCANIC ERUPTION SITE IN ICELAND HOLUHRAUN AND ASKJA, ICELAND’S MOST FAMOUS CALDERA

We start our day tour from Lake Mývatn North Iceland early morning and head for the highlands where the wilderness, wide spaces, geology and natural freshwater springs are awe inspiring.

On this tour we will focus on nature experience that makes the geology, history and biology of the area most interesting and exciting.

It´s a long tour but we will have time to stop and stretch our legs and enjoy nature. We will make two longer stops, at Holuhraun as well as Askja caldera. Tour duration is 12 to 13 hours in total.

The longest hike on the tour is from the parking area at “Vikraborgir” in the “Askja caldera” to “Víti” crater. It is a 2,5 km hike that takes 35 to 45 minutes. The hike difficulty level is easy to moderate depending on snow levels and weather conditions. The area is in the mid-highlands of Iceland where snow can linger the better part of the summer.
