The Road Less Traveled

Join us on this 3-day guided 4×4 self-driven expedition where you get to experience remoteness in combination with must-see sights. We aim to be at the sights either before or after the crowds for the best possible experience. What makes our expeditions special is the fact that we use the back roads as much as possible. Giving us a change to explore many hidden areas in peace.

Tour highlights are Þingvellir National Park, Geysir hot-spring area, Gullfoss waterfall, Hekla volcano, Veiðivötn lakes, Markárfljótsgljúfur and many more unique sites found of the beaten path.


Day 1

Our first stop is Þingvellir National Park, the area is known for unbelievable beauty and history. It´s where the Vikings established the parliament in the year 930 and where a rift valley is being created by the drift of two tectonic plates, the North American and the Eurasian plates. From there we drive to the highlands North of the National Park and South of Langjökull glacier. We explore remote and beautiful areas throughout the day before we arrive at Gullfoss waterfall in the afternoon. After viewing the waterfall, we arrive at Geysir hot-spring area where you can explore the hot-springs and see the one called Strokkur erupt water 25-35 meters into the air. We overnight in the area

Day 2

On this day we will go deep into the highlands of Iceland, where we visit an area that is hidden for most travellers that visit Iceland, the area as many lakes that all are very different. Many of them are lakes in old volcanic craters, the area offers indeed a breath-taking scenery. After enjoying the outdoors in this majestic area, we head back towards our accommodation for the night.

Day 3

On our last day we visit areas like Hekla volcano, Laufafell mountain and other remote areas. We´ll spend the day exploring areas less travelled in the highlands. Scenic stops will be made through out the day. We will arrive in Reykjavík in the late afternoon.
