Private Super Jeep Safari

Hop aboard this ultimate super jeep safari, where we take you to some of the most thrilling natural attractions in south Iceland. This is the perfect tour for those looking to experience Iceland’s unique nature and the thrill of crossing rough terrain in a super jeep.

One of the great benefits of this tour is that the decision of where to go is in the hands of your expert super jeep guide. On the day of the tour, he/she will consider the weather and road conditions, then decide where you’ll explore. No matter the day, we promise you a memorable adventure!

Here is an example of a possible route: We start by heading to our black sand beach, Landeyjafjara. From there, we head to the stunning Seljalandsfoss waterfall and its little brother, Gljúfrabúi. Next up is the hidden waterfall inside the mysterious Nauthúsagil valley and the underground rivers at Merkurker crater. Not so far away is the Gígjökull ice cap, where the floods from the Eyjafjallajökull eruption were first noticed. Your guide will share with you stories from the eruption in 2010 and explain the drastic changes that took place. We will also discover the beautiful area of Fljótshlíð where Iceland’s most famous Saga took place, the Saga of Njáll. There we will stop by the 44 meters tall waterfall Gluggafoss, which forms part of the bigger Merkjárfoss falls.

From December 15th to June 1st, there is also the possibility of going on top of the famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano that erupted in 2010. In good weather, the scenery from the top is spectacular, with a view over the rare flat lands of Iceland, the surrounding glaciers, the black beaches and the Westmann Islands (as well as, of course, a look into the vast crater from which over 500 tonnes of ash per second were at one time being ejected!).

The modified super jeeps can cross unbridged rivers and handle the rough terrain the Icelandic highlands are known for. The super jeeps allow us to explore the magnificence and power of the dramatic landscapes that characterise our island.

On this tour, you will discover volcanoes, glaciers, stunning valleys, waterfalls and panoramic views. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to experience a super jeep safari with an experienced and passionate local guide.
