The Askja Super Jeep tour is the perfect tour to experience the barren interior of Iceland and the lunar-like landscape of the Highlands. This is the location where NASA trained the Apollo Astronauts before the first lunar landing.
Iconic landmarks such as Herðubreiðalindir Oasis, Drekagil Gully and Skínandi Waterfall will also be visited. We catch a glimpse of where the Icelandic outlaws lived in the middle ages when they’d been banished. We might also be able to spot trolls, ghosts and other creatures that are said to live in the area and have haunted travelers for centuries.
The tour starts and ends with a transport from Akureyri, and on the route between Lake Mývatn and Akureyri we stop and visit legendary Goðafoss Waterfall.
