Trip difficulty 3 out of 5 possible. Rated: Easy
This tour will take you off the beaten path to experience Iceland´s natural gems in the comfort of our 4x4 super jeep. Our first destination is the beautiful and historic Þingvellir area where Iceland´s first parliament “Alþingi” was established in 930 AD. We will walk down through Almannagjá canyon and to the Silfra fissure in the heart of the park. Here you will get to experience the clearest waters in the world on our famous Into The Blue snorkeling trip. The underwater visibility of the lava field stretches into the distance, on good day more then 100 meters! You will also be snorkeling with America on one side and Europe on the other, this is with out a doubt one of the most unique and refreshing trips Iceland has to offer.
Next, we take the trail behind the picturesque shield volcano Skjaldbreid, and after about a two hours drive on tough trails and some river crossings we get back to normal roads again. Our next stop, Gullfoss, is Iceland´s best known waterfall, it cascades down 32 meters into the mighty glacial river Hvítá. After seeing Gullfoss up close we continue onwards for a short drive to the Geysir geothermal area. There we will eye witness the spouting hotspring in all its power.
This trip offers an amazing ride through the landscapes and natural forces that have shaped and continue to shape Iceland. The ultimate super-jeep combo trip from Reykjavik!
