Iceland Winter Adventure

In winter, Iceland’s mountainous interior hides a few rare treasures under a layer of snow and ice, magical places that can only be accessed with some difficulty. That is why we use impressive 4x4 super-jeeps that have been modified and adapted for winter conditions (raised chassis and giant under inflated tyres allowing vehicles to “float” on the snow) to reach these isolated locations and experience adventures filled with different impressions. Travelling in these vehicles is an adventure in its own right, a ride into the unknown and not without unforeseen occurrences. Hiking in snowshoes through landscapes that are solidly held in winter’s frozen grips, we swim in open air baths in natural hot springs, and visit waterfalls of all shapes and sizes where water and ice form magical sculptures. Venturing further we view vapour clouds that burst out from earth’s interior, solfataras, mud pots, and geysers that are strangely spectacular in the winter season.
