Join this private super jeep tour where an award-winning photoguide will take you off-the-beaten-path to the Highlands, one of the most remote places in Iceland. Expert and novice photographers alike looking to fill their portfolio with stunning, otherworldly pictures of the Icelandic nature should grab this chance now.

On a private super jeep, you’ll head from Reykjavík and into the mountain 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 which are bordered by steep black lava fields and gorgeous waterfalls.

Our route leads first through the Þjórsárdalur Valley where we 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.

Then, we will also stop to shoot two beautiful volcanic crater lakes, Bláhylur and Ljótipollur, as well as the lake Frostastaðavatn, before we reach our main destination in the Landmannalaugar region.

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

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