4X4 Iceland Adventure 5 Hours PDF Print E-mail
“Ain’t no mountain high enough!! “
You will start by climbing on board one of the different types of Super Jeeps/trucks, a 4x4 vehicle, which has been specially modified by Icelanders to be able to travel on the rugged  tracks of their country.
Many of these rugged conditions are to be found within a short distance from Reykjavík, the Capital city of Iceland, provided you know where to go!
Within minutes of leaving the Capital, these magnificent vehicles are put to the test by effortlessly climbing the 335 m/1,100 feet to the top of “’Ulfarsfell” – and once at the summit, the visitor is greeted by the sight of, quite literally, the city at their feet.
We continue, following the hot water pipe line to its source, that is to say, the apparently dormant volcano Hengill and nearby Lake Thingvallavatn (Iceland’s largest natural lake).  We pause at the viewpoint situated on the flanks of the volcano itself, taking the opportunity to gaze over the geothermal plant and to view the surreal landscape dotted with steam vents and bore holes.  The 4X4s will then bring you along the river Sog with its hydropower plants onwards to the hot spring village of Hveragerdi. Following a short stop at the greenhouse/restaurant “Garden of Eden” we head back to Reykjavík but not the “normal” way!
Our expert drivers take you over the ancient lava plateau of Hellisheidi. On the way, if conditions allow, we will get a last smooth bumpy ride on the “Thousand Waters Route”, splashing in the river.
