Winter adventure

Iceland winter at its best

Two days Super Jeep tour, first crossing Langjökull glacier from south to north-east, and then exploring the wildest part of Iceland. The glacier Langjökull is a massive glacier, the second largest in Iceland, covering 950 km2 of ice. This is a fantastic tour for photographers and nature lovers in general.

Day 1
Have Fun on a Winter ExcursionWe start our tour from Reykjavik heading towards the west coast of Iceland. This is a very interesting route up to the glacier because on the way we see fjords, mountains, lava fields, hotsprings and waterfalls. Once we are at the glacier the real expedition begins. We drive on the glacier up to 1100 meters (3000 ft.) above sea level and then we cruise some 15 km before we go down to the side of the glacier to explore ice caves. After we have admired the ice caves for a while we continue to cross over the icecap. On a clear day we have impressive visibility over the vast ice and snow fields. In late afternoon we arrive at the mountain hut at Hveravellir where we overnight in a sleeping bag accommodation. Hveravellir is a high temperature, geothermal area with many beautiful hot springs surrounded with mountains and glaciers. It lies between the Langjökull glacier and Hofsjökull glacier on the ancient highland route Kjölur. After this long exciting day we will have a relaxing bath in the natural hot spring just outside the mountain hut. There is nothing that compares to lying in the natural hot pool on a winter night, gazing at the countless stars and with some luck the northern lights will also be visible.
We stay in  a mountain hut.

Day 2
Glacier Walk in the SunToday we are heading south the ancient Kjölur route towards the waterfall Gullfoss and the famous Geysir. The Kjölur route, is one of the two main routes used to cross the highlands from north to south. This road has been travelled by Icelanders for hundreds of years, often in very bad weather and experiencing much hardship. There are many stories of heroism and the courage of those who crossed the highlands via Kjölur in the old days. Icelanders frequently travel and love this area, especially the 4×4 and snowmobile enthusiasts. We are back in Reykjavik in the late evening.

Participants need to be reasonably fit and bring their winter gear, warm clothes, boots/hiking boots, etc.

Time: October – May
