2 day Private Complete Askja Excursion

From Akureyri, Lake Mývatn or Reykjavik (w/flight)

The 2 Day Private Complete Askja Excursion is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the raw Icelandic Highland on your own terms. Join us for a unique overnight tour where you will have exclusive access to one of the most isolated places in world.

When others hurry, we relax and travel slowly for 2 days in this most isolated terrain you can find in Iceland. This Super Jeep adventure includes some of Iceland’s most famous highland sites and wilderness with waterfalls, calderas and volcanoes. In this tour we have all the time we need and we will venture deep into the raw, still cooling lava field of Holuhraun from the eruption of the winter 2015.

We are surrounded with geological wonders from morning to nightfall, we visit Ódáðahraun lava fields that are known for number of trolls, ghosts and other creatures that have haunted travelers for centuries.

We stay overnight at a remote and adventures mountain hut and although we’re in the highlands, we still allow ourselves to enjoy a delicious BBQ dinner, especially selected for each excursion.
