Departure: 07:00 Akureyri
Available: June- September
On this 4x4 tour with an expert guide we head off from your pick up location in North Iceland, usually Akureyri or Lake Myvatn and travel though stunning landscapes passing glacial rivers, moutains and lava fields deep into the highlands to visit the amazing Askja volcanic area. We visit the Hrossborgir explosion crater and film location of oblivion and Gljúfrasmiður 'canyon builder' Waterfall. We then move on to Herðubreið, a flat top volcano where the beautiful Herðubreiðarlindir Springs are situated at the foot and are considered to be one of the most beautiful places in the wilderness in Iceland. We also visit the otherworldly Drekagil or 'Dragon's Gully'. Of course the highlight of the trip is the magnificant Askja Caldera in the Dyngjufjoll Mountains, it is a 50 km2 subsidence cauldron formed when an eruption caused the roof of the magma chamber in the central volcano to subside. The caldera contains Víti crater where it is sometimes possible to swim in the Summer.
