Description

Includes meal, Moderate activity

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Go off-roading aboard a comfortable and sturdy 4x4 Super Jeep. Your full day of adventure begins with a ride through Akureyri and out into the rugged and untouched wilderness. Enjoy a photo stop at Barðardalur Valley, a lush, green valley dotted with patches of lava. Then, drive to the breathtaking beauty known as the Aldeyjarfoss Waterfall. Framed with tall columns of black basalt, the white water cascades 65 feet into the Skjalfandafljot River. From the waterfall, enjoy a short stop at Lake Myvatn, which lies at the heart of Iceland's most geologically active district. Then, it's time for lunch at a local restaurant followed by a stop at Godafoss Waterfall, which stretches 90 feet and tumbles more than 35 feet into the Skjálfandafljót River. Snap off some impressive shots of the beautiful crescent-shaped canyon with its cascading falls before reboarding the Jeep for the return route to your ship.

Special Notes:

This tour is not recommended for persons with mobility problems as the vehicles are not easily accessible. Not recommended for guests with recent back or neck injuries. The off-road trail is on very rough terrain.

Warm, layered clothing and good sturdy shoes are advised.
