Know More about this tour

You'll drive across vast stretches of sand and fields of lava on a rugged mountain track towards Mt. Herðubreið, Iceland's national mountain. A short stop is made at Herðubreiðarlindir, an oasis in the desert. The Drekagil gully is explored before driving into the Askja caldera where the group will park next to craters from the 1961 eruption. From there, you walk to Lake Askja and Víti, an explosion crater formed in 1875. The hike to Askja Caldera is around 30 minutes easy walk each way. In 2014, the Holuhraun lava fields were formed in a massive eruption in central Iceland and this tour takes you near Vatnajökull Glacier, the biggest glacier in Europe. This tour is an extensive exploration to the Iceland Highland where you experience the true power and beauty of Iceland's nature.

  • The tour was exceptional. Our guide Anton was very knowledgeable with great story telling skills. He knew the Askja area very well and we straight away felt at home with him.
    It was in the month of June and there was decent amount of snow so one side 2.4km hike takes around 45mins but is very enjoyable. In the end the views were breathtaking. It was one of the major highlight in Iceland during our 10 day trip.
    Only issue with June is that you can't take bath in the viti.
