Explore and discover the town of Vik in an exceptional way on this 1-hour tour with Katlatrack Adventure Tours. You will have the exclusive help of a knowledgeable tour guide, while transportation will be done through a 4X4 super jeep. Enjoy a panoramic view of the incredible landscapes from the topmost point of Mt. Reynisfjall.
Your local guide will meet you in Vik before our small group heads out of town towards the mountains. You’ll feel the first rush of adrenaline as our Super Jeep climbs the steepest mountain road in Iceland - a privately owned roadway that you can only access with a Katlatrack guide.
We’ll see many beautiful tones and textures along the way as we travel to the peak of Reynisfjall, a majestic mountain dating all the way back to the Ice Age. Once at the top, we’ll climb out of the Jeep and your jaw will hit the ground as the incredible, panoramic view is finally revealed.
From here we can see Reynisdrangar’s distinctive rocky columns jutting out of the Atlantic, along with the most famous black sand beach in Iceland, Reynisfjara. A little to the west we can also see the famous arch of Dyrhólaey, a rocky peninsula formed thousands of years ago by a volcanic eruption. You’ll experience a completely unique, birds-eye perspective over some of Iceland’s most iconic locations. Better still, you get to enjoy this breathtaking landscape in complete peace and privacy, with only a handful of other guests for company.
There will be plenty of time for photos, and plenty of ‘pinch me!’ moments before we climb back in the Jeep and depart for Vik. On our way home we’ll step back in time to the 1930s and travel on the first road that was ever built for cars in South Iceland. Along the way, your local guide will tell you the story of Vik, and the mysterious mountains that surround our home town. We’ll also share the tales that we grew up with and you’ll learn all about the famous trolls of Reynisdrangar, and how these sea stacks came to be.
Finally, we’ll put our Super Jeep to work and head off-road for a little taste of the adventure that you came for! We’ll cross a river and take you across some epic, wild terrain before depositing you safely back in Vik.
