Our location is at the entrance to the southern icelandic highlands with the queen of our countryside, volcano Hekla, in the front. Our Hekla tour is one of our most popular; where you will experience the black desert and lava surrounding her together with beautiful oasis that opens up in the middle of nowhere - A true wonder of Icelandic nature!
In addition to our queen Hekla the crown jewel is Landmannalaugar hot spring that you can easily add on to the Hekla tour or book "Highland special".
We specialize in guided day tours - private and custom made.
Our focus is private or small groups(1-6) to give our guest a personal service and make their tour a unique one by sharing our passion.
Do not hesitate to drop us a line for bigger groups and special event’s !
