Private Askja & Holuhraun Super Jeep

Enter the Silence of the Highlands

Private Askja & Holuhraun Tour is an adventure like no other in Iceland. Your escape to the isolated mountains of Iceland, your retreat in a busy and noisy world. Entering the Highlands of Iceland brings a feeling like no other, hard to fathom  with words. You need to be here…

This is the perfect tour to experience the barren interior of Iceland and the lunar-like landscape of the Highlands. This is the location where NASA trained the Apollo Astronauts before the first lunar landing. Iconic landmarks such as Herðubreiðalindir Oasis, Drekagil Gully and Skínandi Waterfall will also be visited. We catch a glimpse of where the Icelandic outlaws lived in the middle ages when they’d been banished. We might also be able to spot trolls, ghosts and other creatures that are said to live in the area and have haunted travelers for centuries.
