Description

Please send an enquiry for availability and price. This tour is specifically designed for thrill seekers and people who want to take it all the way.  We go in to the volcano glacier area and Thorsmork nature reserve in a modified luxury super jeep where we cross many unbridged glacier rivers and take on the rough mountain roads.  We visit Gigjokull outlet glacier from Eyjafjallajokull, hike into stunningly beautiful canyons which are thought to have inspired J.R.R. Tolkien when he wrote The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings.  We can hike into stunning glacial valleys and canyons for breathtaking views.

The helicopter picks you up and takes you on a thrilling flight over the crater in Eyjafjallajokull volcano and we land on the new lava field in Fimmvorduhals from the eruption in 2010.  The helicopter will then take you either back to Reykjavik or drop you off at the famous lobster restaurant Vid Fjorubordid in Stokkseyri if you wish.  We will then pick you up after dinner and take you back to Reykjavik in the jeep. Please note that some of the pictures are shot during the volcanic eruption in Eyjafjallajokull in 2010 which is not active anymore.

  • Departure: 9:00 (AM)
