Askja Super Jeep

Lunar Landscape & the Isolated Highland

This Askja tour is the perfect to experience Iceland´s barren interior and the lunar-like landscape of the highlands. The Askja area is one of the main location where NASA trained their Apollo Astronauts before the first lunar landing.  Iconic landmarks such as Herðubreiðalindir Oasis, Drekagil Gully and Holuhraun Lava Fields are visited and number of other off the map sights and places. 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.

The tour starts and ends with a transport from Akureyri to Lake Mývatn and during that drive we stop and visit the legendary Goðafoss Waterfall.

This tour is also available from Lake Mývatn
