Volcanic desert with lava fields, powerful rivers and views of high mountains and big glaciers is the scenery we can expect on this tour. Near the center of Iceland, sheltered by Hofsjokull glacier, is a highland oasis called Laugafell. The legend tells about a rich woman, who went up there in the ancient times, with her people to stay away from the plague that was killing people in the habitat areas.
We take you on our Super Jeep up to the highland and stop at Laugafell. After a relaxing soak in the hot spring we drive down from the highland to a horse farm in Skagafjördur. On arriving there we are introduced to the unique Icelandic horse and enjoy some local refreshments before driving back to Akureyri.
