    Day 1
    Reykjavik - Landmannalaugar

    On the first day we will start the tour at the Arctic Trucks headquarters in Reykjavík for a short briefing on the adventures ahead. The Arctic Trucks Team will teach you how to drive in different off road conditions, airing down the tires and driving through rivers.

    We will visit the Hekla volcano area and Landmannalaugar highland paradise. Mount Hekla is a 1450 meter high and one of Iceland's most active volcanoes. During the Middle Ages, Europeans called the volcano the "Gateway to Hell."

    We will drive to Landmannalaugar and to its comfy mountain hut at the borders of a warm river. The extraordinary colors that surround the hut in Landmannalaugar will leave nobody untouched. After relaxing and enjoying a bath in the natural hot river we head to the hut and enjoy a BBQ leg of lamb.
