Take your family and friends or treat yourself to a private super jeep tour with one of our award-winning photo guides into the heart of the Icelandic Highlands!

This tour will take you off-the-beaten-path to one of the most remote places in Iceland. You'll have the perfect opportunity to fill your landscape photography portfolio with unique and otherworldly pictures of the breathtaking scenery to be found in the true Icelandic wilderness.

On the morning of your tour, you'll be picked up by your private photo guide in a super jeep. You’ll then head from Reykjavík into the mountains, where you’ll be driven on gravel roads and across rivers to capture the best view of the rugged landscape of Landmannalaugar in the Highlands.

This area is one of Iceland’s hidden gems with its colourful, rhyolite mountains, basalt rock formations, and geothermal bathing pools bordered by steep black lava fields and gorgeous waterfalls.

Your route will take you through the Þjórsárdalur Valley, where you will stop to shoot the beautiful Hjálparfoss waterfall. This unique cascade falls in a double stream and is joined at the base in a very large plunge pool which is surrounded by rugged lava formations.

Thereafter, you'll stop to shoot two beautiful volcanic crater lakes – Bláhylur and Ljótipollur – as well as the lake Frostastaðavatn, before reaching your main destination in Landmannalaugar.

Once you arrive, you will take an easy hike to the volcano Bláhnúkur for a beautiful, panoramic view over Landmannalaugar Valley. After that, you will have some time to relax and bathe in the natural hot springs next to the lava fields. This is where both hot and cold water flow out from beneath the Laugahraun lava field. When combined in a natural pool, it creates the perfect bathing temperature.

On the way back to Reykjavík, we will take a different route for a great view of the legendary Hekla volcano, which was once believed to be the gateway to Hell.

Don't miss out on the chance to explore the otherworldly region of Landmannalaugar with this fantastic private photo tour. Check availability by choosing a date.
