There is always a kind of pressure that comes with travelling. One feels as if one must return home with a million photographs after a holiday in Iceland and a million stories so as not to disappoint one’s loved ones.
One of the most exciting ways to explore Iceland’s off-road trails is in a super jeep capable of navigating the steepest and rockiest of terrains, glaciers, deserts or beaches. You can cross big rivers and wind up narrow mountain roads to reach remote natural sites of astonishing beauty that only the most powerful of vehicles can safely enter. Our Jeeps are equipped for all road and weather conditions and are not just huge in size, they are luxury cars as well.
The Golden Circle jeep tour is Iceland’s most popular tourist route. Although, if you observe the route from above, on a map, it does not look like a circle. It looks like a young child’s attempt at a circle. But that is beside the point. It may not be the perfect circle, but it is the perfect tourist route.
Experience the very best of the South Coast on this fantastic 15-hour jokulsarlon glacier lagoon day tour – including the breathtaking floating icebergs of Jokulsarlon the glacial lagoon and Diamond bech.
An amazing day of everchanging landscapes as you head west to explore the famous man-made ice cave. We let the weather decide our route, as we jeep through the beautiful scenery of the West, including glacial valleys and waterfalls, before heading for Iceland’s most treasured site: Þingvellir National Park.
“That we leave our homes, that we step through our doors to the world, that we travel our whole lives not because we want to collect exotic T-shirts, not because we want to consume foreign adventure the same Western way we consume plastic and Styrofoam and LCD TVs and iPads, but because it has the power to renew us—not the guarantee, not the promise, just the possibility. Because there are places our imaginations can never construct for us, and there are people who we will never meet but we could and we might. It reminds us that there is always reason to begin again.”
Stephen Markley, Tales of Iceland
