Know More about this tour

After a morning pickup from your Reykjavik hotel at 8:30am, you’ll board your super jeep for an all-day adventure exploring Iceland’s exceptional sights.  The Main 4X4 Super jeeps/vehicles are Land Rover Defenders. All modified with big 40 Inch wheels ready for the mighty challenge these tours offer every day, all year round! The jeeps are equipped with extra fold down step for easy accessibility, luxurious leather seats, air conditioning, WiFi, GPS, first-aid kit, trackwell and other sorts of security equipment. Behind the wheel on the tours are experienced driving guides that sure know how to run such big cars in the wilderness & highways of Iceland.

Your first stop takes you to Thingvellir National Park where the Icelandic parliament was founded over 1000 years ago. At Thingvellir you will see how the earth is ever so slowly pulling apart along the North-America and Eurasian tectonic plates and you will be able to stand where the Viking settlers stood centuries ago.

Next, you will visit the Geysir geothermal area in Haukadalur where you can see geysers, hot springs, steam vents and eerie blue algae. Strokkur is one of the largest and most powerful geysers and erupts almost every 5 minutes.

The final stop of the Golden Circle takes you to Gullfoss waterfall, which many consider to be the queen of Icelandic waterfalls, as it is both high and mighty and stumbles dramatically in a deep gorge. After Gullfoss, you'll stop for lunch at Gullfoss Café which offers local flair and offers diverse options such as Icelandic meat soup, all in the midst of Gullfoss waterfall. Once lunch is complete, it’s time to try out our Super jeep vehicles off road: the ride will take you to the highlands, rough terrain and glacier area of Langjökull (Icelandic for "long glacier"), known to be the second largest ice cap in Iceland (953 km2). You will enjoy the landscape from your Super jeep while occasionally stopping to take in the incredible sights.

After an off-road ride, you’ll visit Faxi, a small but beautiful waterfall before driving back to Reykjavik, returning to your hotel around 5:00pm.

  • We had a great trip with Arni in the Super Jeep. He kept us entertained the whole day with information about the history and mythology of Iceland and went out of his way to make this trip special, off roading whenever possible so we went where the buses and mini buses were unable to go. He found the special views and places where there were no other vehicles, and the drive onto the glacier was especially amazing and only possible in one of these huge jeeps. It is definitely worth the extra to take a super jeep tour where the driver can adapt the itinerary to whatever the passengers want. Arnie also took us to a great place to eat, far away from the crowds and serving delicious Icelandic food. Nothing was too much trouble for him and we arrived back later than expected as Arni took us to see places not included on the visit.Thank you Arni for a great day and for taking photos for us everywhere!

  • Wonderful tour! If you do only one tour in Iceland it needs to be the Golden Circle and we loved doing it by Super Jeep! The Super Jeep tour is probably best for more adventuresome travelers, but everyone should have great fun! Our guide was Sio and he was fantastic. We loved his sense of humor and the stories that he told about the sites we visited. During part of the tour we drove out on the glacier and were able to walk around on it. Having a small group meant that we had more flexibility and were able to spend more time at some of the locations than you would get with the larger tours.

  • The jeep was cramped and had terrible visibility from inside, even on the passenger side in the middle row. There were bars right in the way of our view, and forced us to duck down to try to see outside during the drive. The driver he was definitely NOT a tour guide was minimally communicative, providing the barest information about the sights we were passing. One passenger even slept during the drive because the view was nonexistent. The jeep should only be used for maybe 5 passengers but we were jammed in with 6, forcing one passenger to sit on the middle seat which was not really designed for long term seating. We knew up front that this was a rain-or-shine tour, so they cannot be blamed for the rainy weather. However, the driver used manual control to run the wipers, so we had poor views through the front window, and the defogger was not used to keep the windows from fogging up. We were constantly wiping the windows to try to get any views. It was cramped, uncomfortable, and a miserable way to see or try to a beautiful country. Do yourself a favor and look for one of the vans with big windows. Even a bus would have been preferable to this.
