In this Super Jeep Tour to Askja Caldera & Holuhraun Lava field the groups are small and we focus on a relaxed atmosphere where you will have time to enjoy the amazing scenery.

The hiking in Askja Caldera to Víti explosion crater is 2,5 km and takes around 35 to 45 minutes one way, the difficulty is easy to moderate depending on snow levels and weather conditions. Once at Víti explosion crater we will take our time and absorb the incredible atmosphere of the Askja Caldera.

Holuhraun lava field sits on the floodplains between Vatnajökull Glacier and the Askja caldera Mountain Range. The rough, untouched and still cooling lava field is Iceland’s youngest lava field and we will have an opportunity to explore this amazing world.
