Landmannalaugar and Hekla volcano

PRIVATE TOUR

DURATION 8-9HRS PICKUP TIME 9.00 - or up on request

After boarding our Superjeeps in Reykjavik, we cross fertile South Iceland farmlands, opening up to grand views of Hekla volcano’s snow-covered top (elev. 1491m). Hekla’s next eruption is long overdue and expected at any time so you just might catch the show. Since Iceland’s human settlement in the ninth century, Hekla’s 20-30 eruptions have ranged from pretty little tourist attractions to explosive disasters. There’s no wonder Hekla has long been taken for the entrance to Hell for damned souls.

Conditions permitting, we may make it up onto the volcano’s eruptive ridge, ca 900m above sea level, where the air is crisp and the views incomparable. Pushing deeper into Iceland’s eruptive interior, we take in and touch scenery so unreal it is repeatedly used for other- world Hollywood A-films. When we arrive in Landmannalaugar we can hike, or dip in Iceland’s most famous natural hot pool, or both. When you havet been suitably geothermally cooked, it’s time to head north through “does-this-really- exist” looking surroundings with stop at Gjáin (Games of thrones site) before driving towards Reykjavík.

Now we are celebrating 25 years together!

In the year 1995, Björk and Kristján started Mountain Taxi with one driver guide and one vehicle. 25 years later, we’re still at it! Glaciers have moved, volcanoes have erupted and as we say in Iceland, a lot of water has run to sea, but one thing remains the same. Our passion to explore and give you the best experience of Iceland possible.

We’re happy to announce that it’s time to make an old dream come true and start a new chapter in Mountain Taxi history. From the start of 2020 we will be focusing solely on private tours to give you the best possible experience of our wonderful island. As a part of this new chapter we will no longer be ofering water in plastic bottles, but giving our guests reusable, eco-friendly water bottles. It’s been a great 25 years, and we look forward to writing the next chapter with you!

Thank you!

Björk, Kristján & the Mountain Taxi team.
