Climb aboard a super Jeep and journey to the remote caldera of Askja on a relaxed and intimate small group tour. Depart from the Lake Mývatn area and venture into a wilderness of wide open spaces and natural freshwater springs. Get back to nature and experience what makes the geology, history and biology of the area so interesting and exciting. Marvel at the beautiful lava fields surrounding the flat-topped Herðubreiðarlindir volcano, known for its incredible flora and the ruins of a hut where an outlaw spent the winter of 1775. See the caldera complex of Askja, caused by the violent eruptions of 1875. Hike to the banks of the geothermal lake in the caldera and visit the hot spring of the Víti crater, where the water is around 20°C - 26°C and provides a once-in-a-lifetime experience.  Next, go to Holuhraun and discover Iceland's newest lava field, formed by the eruptions of 2014 and 2015 to create the largest lava field in Iceland since 1783. Situated on the floodplains between the Vatnajökull glacier and the mountain range of the Askja caldera, the lava field is rough, still cooling down and an extraordinary place to explore.
