Askja Private Tour
We start our Askja private tour from Lake Myvatn, and head for the mountain road F88 and follow that road into the central highlands. 

There the wilderness, wide spaces, geology and natural fresh-water springs are awe-inspiring. On this epic tour, we will focus on scenic places, basic geology, and history of the area.

Our Askja private tour we are very flexible and tailor make the tour to your interests. Private tours are popular for photographers who want to take that extra time for the perfect image.

The hike in Askja Caldera to Viti-crater is 2,5 km and takes about 35 to 45 minutes one way, the walk is easy to moderate depending on snow levels and weather conditions. Once at Viti-crater we will take our time and enjoy the incredible view Askja has to offer.

Askja private tour can take max 4-6 passenger per Super-Jeep but we can easily add Jeeps for bigger groups.


The area we will visit is in the central highlands of Iceland where snow can linger the better part of the summer. Bring warm clothes, waterproof jacket, and pants, sunglasses, sunblock, good hiking shoes/boots for walking in snow, food, and water.
