HEKLA & LANDMANNALAUGAR
TAKE A RIDE THROUGH THE BACKYARD OF ICELAND
VOLCANO HEKLA & LANDMANNALAUGAR
A day trip to the Landmannalaugar highland paradise and Hekla volcano- the most active volcano in Iceland. Arctic Trucks Experience offers guided Iceland tours in the amazing highlands where you do all the driving!
You sit behind the wheel on the modified super truck with all its power in your hands! We will be travelling to the most special areas that our backyard has to offer. This is the most ultimate super truck experience. Deserted tracks in combination with a stunning ruggedness of the surroundings, will result in an unforgettable experience.
We drive to Landmannalaugar, a highland paradise where the extraordinary colors of the area leave nobody untouched. On the journey we drive on mountain- and gravel roads through beautiful landscapes and colorful mountains and cross several rivers. After a relaxing and wonderful bath in the natural warm river in Landmannalaugar we head back normal roads and if conditions are good we pass Hekla volcano. Hekla is a 1450-meter-high, one of Iceland’s most active volcanoes and last erupted in year 2000. During the Middle Ages, Europeans called the volcano the “Gateway to Hell.”
Depending on conditions your Arctic Trucks guide will decide what tracks are most fun to drive in finalizing our task for the day, a view on the volcano and a visit to Landmannalaugar.
