Starting from Reykjavik towards Hekla
We start off from Reykjavík and drive through the fertile farmlands of southern Iceland. Soon the snow-covered peak of Hekla, Iceland’s most famous active volcano, comes into view. Hekla was notorious in medieval Europe as it was believed to be the entrance to hell. Hekla has erupted approximately 20 times since the county was settled in the ninth century.
Driving along the volcano
The variations in the lava and vegetation shaped by the forces of erosion create a spectacular setting for the volcano. We drive right up to the edge of the youngest lava field formed during the 2000 eruption. If weather permits, we drive up along the volcano’s ridge, which is 900 meters above sea level. From this height, we can enjoy a splendid view of the surrounding region.
To Landmannalaugar in Super Jeeps
We then head into Landmannalaugar traversing a few streams and rivers in our specially build super jeep. We will stop allowing time for exploring or a refreshing dip in the nearby hot springs stream. As we head out of the interior, we visit the explosion crater Ljótipollur. Then we advance down the picturesque Þjórsárdalur We’ll make a stop at the photogenic Hjálparfoss waterfall after making a pit stop at the highland hotel at Hrauneyjar for coffee and a break. The day in the Landmannalaugar area is a memorable experience and a geological treat.
