Traverse the Icelandic Highlands in a Super Jeep During Winter

On this winter highland adventure tour, you will experience the best of the south coast in just 3 days. Your expert driver guide will traverse an incredibly diverse landscape at a comfortable pace in a modified 4x4 vehicle. The adventure starts off with a visit to the famous Golden Circle. See Þingvellir, a UNESCO World Heritage site, Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir hot spring. You will have a thrilling ride into the valley of the Landmannalaugar, the world third largest geothermal zone. Add in a Glacier Walk on Sólheimajökull glacier and a visit to the DC-3 plane wreck on the black beach, and you have the ultimate south coast adventure. If we are lucky, the Northern lights may come out and grace us with a spectacular show.

Departures with a french speaking guide upon request.

Note that the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and therefore sightings can not be guaranteed.
