 Real mountain luxury tour in a super jeep, Experienced local guide, plenty of time to hike around, lava, craters, glacier view, un-bridged rivers, beautiful waterfalls, spectacular gorge and scenery.

 Laki Craters Mountain Expedition is a guided luxury tour that takes you through rough mountain terrain around Iceland’s most famous craters that erupted in 1783-4, resulting in the largest lava flow in a single eruption in recorded history. Laki mountain stands approximately in the middle of the row of craters and from there is a magnificent view of the row of craters and the surrounding landscape. It is safe to say that the view of the area is spectacular, due to both unique nature and the history of Lakagígar.

Itinerary

Lakagígar, Laki Craters

Laki Craters Mountain Expedition is a guided luxury tour that takes you through rough mountain terrain around Iceland’s most famous craters that erupted in 1783-4, resulting in the largest lava flow in a single eruption in recorded history.

 It will only take us about 1.5 hours to get comfortable to Laki Craters.  Normal 4x4 cars will be at least 3 hours to drive this 45 km to Laki if they make it at all.   We will stop at Laki for about 2,5 hours.  You have plenty of time to hike on top of Laki Mountain for a magnificent view over the row of craters and to Vatnajökull glacier. There is an interpretation trail into the craters next to Laki Mountain that visitors can take.  A gentle walk into the craters with time to absorb the history should take about 45 minutes.

Our next stop is Tjarnargígur, only 15 minutes’ drive.  Tjarnargígur has water inside.  From Tjarnargígur you can hike the same path as the lava took from the crater (about 1 hour easy walk).  Your driver guide will move the super jeep to the end of the trail and wait for you there.

Among other places, we will stop at the beautiful hidden Fagrifoss waterfall and end our tour at the breathtaking Fjaðrárgljúfur gorge where passengers can walk downhill by the side of the gorge (about 20 min easy walk). The car will move on and wait for you at the parking lot.  There is a WC at Laki, Tjarnargígur and Fjaðrárgljúfur gorge.  

Our Super Jeep can take 14 pax but we normally do not take more than 10 pax in each car unless there is a group traveling together or a family.  Small group means less time to wait for others and more time for you to hike around.
