You sit behind the wheel in the modified super truck with all its power in your hands! We will be travelling to the most picturesque areas our backyard has to offer. This is the ultimate 4X4 experience. Deserted tracks in combination with a stunning ruggedness of the surroundings, will deliver an unforgettable experience. 

Mount Hekla is a 1450 meters high, one of Iceland’s most active volcanoes and last erupted in the year 2000. During the Middle Ages, Europeans called the volcano the “Gateway to Hell.” Next we drive to Landmannalaugar, a highland paradise where the extraordinary colors of the area are unforgettable. After a relaxing bath in the natural warm river we head back to our hotel in Reykjavík.

Depending on conditions your Arctic Trucks instructor/guide will decide what tracks are most hard to drive in finalizing our task for today, a view on the volcano and a visit to Landmannalaugar.

This tour offers all the best that the Icelandic highlands have to offer!
