Askja Super Jeep Day tour
We start our Askja & Holuhraun Super Jeep day-tour from Lake Mývatn, North Iceland and head for the highlands. There the wilderness, wide spaces, geology and natural freshwater springs seem as from another planet. On this enlightening tour, we will focus on nature experience that makes the geology, history, and biology of the area most interesting and exciting.
In this Super Jeep Tour to Askja Caldera & Holuhraun Lava field the groups are small and your local Guide will focus on a relaxed atmosphere where you will have time to enjoy the amazing scenery.
