Eyjafjallajokull and Thorsmork Experience

Summary

The day starts at your hotel where you will take your seat in the 38" modified Hilux and drive off to your adventure in Iceland.  We´ll take the main road east from Reykjavík through the mountains of Hellisheiði plateau and along the south coast passing small Icelandic farms all the way to the foot of the world famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano. Your guide will show you the way and how best to enjoy the special features the Hilux has to offer. We stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall where the brave ones can take a walk behind the waterfall as it falls from the 60 meters high cliffs. After driving between two glaciers on the rutted tracks and crossing few unbridged glacier rivers we arrive at the lush Þórsmörk valley at the foot of Mýrdalsjökull glacier and Katla volcano. There you have the option of doing a hiking tour or more driving on the rough mountain tracks. From Þórsmörk we drive to the beautiful waterfall Skógafoss. Then we go down to the black lava sand beaches where we admire the power of the North Atlantic Ocean with the waves crashing on the beach right in front of us, before we head back to Reykjavík.

Arctic Trucks has been modifying vehicles for over 25 years, first only in Iceland but now we have operation in over 6 countries and operating tours both in Iceland and in Antarctica. Arctic Trucks Experience offers private super jeep tours in the Icelandic highlands where you do the driving. The vehicles are modified Toyota Hilux and Toyota Land Cruiser on 38“ tires and they are all 2015 and 2016 models. The Arctic Trucks guide will teach you everything you need to know for driving the vehicle in the highlands. You will be a part of the whole trip; deflating the tires, using the shovel and rope, driving on difficult roads and crossing rivers. You will learn what super jeep tours in the Icelandic highlands are all about! The Arctic Trucks guides are all experienced in travelling in the highlands and in tough conditions, many of them have been guiding trips to Antarctica and also work in the Arctic Trucks garage. The tour selection online is just to give you an idea on what we have to offer, the tours are always private so we are very flexible with the itinerary. Usually our trips are a mix of popular sights and the isolated highland roads.
