On this 4x4 tour with an expert guide we head off from your pick up location in North Iceland Lake Myvatn and travel though stunning landscapes passing glacial rivers, moutains and lava fields deep into the highlands to visit the amazing Askja volcanic area. We visit the Hrossborgir explosion crater and film location of oblivion and Gljúfrasmiður 'canyon builder' Waterfall. We then move on to Herðubreið, a flat top volcano where the beautiful Herðubreiðarlindir Springs are situated at the foot and are considered to be one of the most beautiful places in the wilderness in Iceland. We also visit the otherworldly Drekagil or 'Dragon's Gully'. Of course the highlight of the trip is the magnificant Askja Caldera in the Dyngjufjoll Mountains, it is a 50 km2 subsidence cauldron formed when an eruption caused the roof of the magma chamber in the central volcano to subside. The caldera contains Víti crater where it is sometimes possible to swim in the Summer.
Lush to Lunar Askja Tour
The Askja Caldera tour brings out the essence of Iceland nature experience. The day begins early, heading into the barren wastelands of Iceland´s interior. Our ride is a Jeep and the CO2 impact of the whole trip is offset by a certified agent. There will be stops along the way in order to meet locals who show us the “hows” and “whats” of living in this wonderful place of contrasts. Along the way there will be plenty of photo ops, offering the chance to capture the incredible beauty and landscapes that go from lush to lunar. Lunch stop is en-route depending on conditions on the way, including delicious locally sourced ingredients. We will stop by to visit the place that NASA used as a training ground for astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin for the Apollo 11 lunar landing in 1969. Askja is an active volcano, which last erupted in 1961. The tour includes a hike to the explosion crater Víti (e. Hell) where it is possible to bathe in the geothermal lake in the crater.
Askja Day Tour on Private Jeep
This tour is a simply unforgettable adventure in the wild highlands. Mount Herðubreið, a majestic table mountain of a truly peculiar cake or pot shape, is the gate to the Askja area, location of two Apollo astronauts trainings in the '60, in preparation for the missions to the Moon. The dark silhouette is unmistakable even from very far away when appears in all its charm. The most precious gem of the region, though, is Askja, the caldera, a volcanic depression formed by the collapse of a magma chamber. The magnificent lunar landscape, one of the windiest and most desolate place of Iceland, is dominated by the metallic blue lake Öskjuvatn and the milky blue crater lake, Viti.
