Enter the extraterrestrial in this daring adventure to Iceland's desolate interior.
Highlights: Herðubreiðarlindir - Askja caldera - Víti explosion crater
Experience the barren interior of Iceland, the lunar-like landscape where NASA trained Apollo astronauts and where the Icelandic outlaws lived in the middle ages. Not to mention the number of trolls, ghosts and other creatures in this area that have haunted travelers for centuries.
Please be ready at 7:30 am, pickup is from 7:30-8:00 am.
We drive east from Lake Mývatn up to the highlands where we stop at Herðubreiðarlindir Springs and more stunning places on our way up to Askja Caldera.
When we arrive to Dreki Gully outside of Askja we have a lunch break and short walks around that area before heading into Askja Caldera.
The hike to the Askja Lake, inside the caldera, is about half an hour each way and at the Lake we spend quite some time walking around the area and enjoying the dramatic but beautiful landscape.
After a quick stop at Dreki Gully after the hike we start our drive back to Lake Mývatn with a short stop or two on the way back.
Duration 8-9 Hours
