3 Day Highland Adventure

Askja-Laugafell-Þórshöfn


Feeling like you're on the moon, listening to complete silence in the middle of nowhere, driving through fresh lava fields, crossing glacial rivers and sleeping in a rooftent. That is the adventure you will experience if you go with us to the Highlands of Iceland. With our Landrover Defender we can drive to the most unique and unexplored places that Iceland has to offer. In a 3 day-tour you will be surprised by the beauty of the Highlands.

Day 1

Thorshöfn - Askja

After breakfast we will pick you up in front of restaurant Báran in the harbor of Thorshöfn. If we all have found a comfortable place in the Landrover, the adventure is ready to begin. On the way to Askja we can walk along the edge of Ásbyrgi Canyon and also admire the
Hafragilsfoss. In the evening you have the opportunity to explore the Drekagil (Dragon Canyon), where the name of the canyon speaks for itself. 

Day 2

Öskjuvatn, Viti and driving to Laugafell

After a good night sleep in the rooftent we will be ready for a walk in the volcanic scenery around Askja. With the Landrover we will drive through a lavafield to the start of our walk. It takes us about half an hour to walk to crater lake Öskjuvatn and geothermal pool Viti. We can walk around and of course we have time to take some magnificent pictures. People who are looking for real adventure can even take a swim in Viti. Later on we will drive to Laugafell, where we have the possibility to bathe in a natural hot pool next to the campsite.

 

Day 3

Laugafell - ÞÓRSHÖFN

Early birds can take a morning bath in the hot pool before we drive back to Thorshöfn. On our way we drive to lake Mývatn and walk through nature reserve Dimmuborgir. Here we find huge lava rockformations arised from a volcanic lake. Later on we stop by at the geothermal field of Námafjall. What we see over here is boiling mud pots and a rich amount of smoking fumaroles.
