Askja and Holuhraun lava field day tour
Askja caldera and Holuhraun, Iceland’s youngest lava field is an adventure in itself.
We start our Askja & Holuhraun Super Jeep day-tour from Lake Mývatn, North Iceland and head for the highlands. There the wilderness, wide open spaces, geology and natural freshwater springs seem as from another planet. On this enlightening tour we will focus on nature experience that makes the geology, history and biology of the area most interesting and exciting.
In this Super Jeep Tour to Askja Caldera & Holuhraun Lava field the groups are small and we focus on a relaxed atmosphere where you will have time to enjoy the amazing scenery.
The hiking in Askja Caldera to Víti explosion crater is 2,5 km and takes around 35 to 45 minutes one way, difficulty is easy to moderate depending on snow levels and weather conditions. Once at Víti explosion crater we will take our time and absorb the incredible atmosphere of the Askja Caldera.
Holuhraun lava field sits on the floodplains between Vatnajökull Glacier and the Askja caldera Mountain Range. The rough, untouched and still cooling lava field is Iceland’s youngest lava field and we will have an opportunity to explore this amazing world.
