Want to experience an unforgettable adventure in the Icelandic highlands? Our Askja Classic tour will take you to the most spectacular places. You'll visit Askja caldera within the Vatnajökull Glacier national park with amazing volcanic formations. There you'll see Öskjuvatn (Lake Askja), the second deepest lake in Iceland surrounded by the gorgeous mountain range. If the weather allows, we'll dive right into Víti (Hell), a volcanic crater, filled with turquoise-blue geothermal water. Swimming in a volcanic crater 1100 meters above sea level while admiring a view of Icelandic highlands is an experience you'll not likely forget. Specifically for highland terrain designed 4x4 bus will take us through lava fields and rivers, while we can enjoy the sights. While we pass through mountains, glacier rivers, canyons, waterfalls, our professional guide will walk you through the history and geology of the area.
