The tour into Iceland highlands is only possible during summer time.

Kerlingafjöll is a famous geothermal site in the center of the Iceland highlands.  It used to be a popular skiing resort during summertime, but due to rising temperature and the retreat of the glaciers that is hardly possible today.  But if you have an interest in geology, particularly geothermal surface manifestations featuring boiling hot springs and colorful rhyolite mountains you will certainly experience that up close and witness the stunning beauty of this place. The area also features lot of steam rising up from the hot fumaroles.  The surrounding mountains retain glaciers and combined with colorful rhyolite, dark and bright tuff stones, create a uniquely photogenic landscape. This popular tourist spot, requires both appropriate vehicle and experienced driver via gravel roads (named Kjalvegur). Fortunately, that's exactly what we are offering our guests.

When we are 700 meters above sea level, we may expect all kind of weather, so be well prepared.

Hveravellir, just an hour and a half drive from Kerlingafjöll is another geothermal hot spot offering distinctly different experience.  This popular oasis in the highlands allows you to bathe in a natural hot spring pool, followed by a cup of hot chocolate and slice of a cake. Please be aware that in the nature there is no facility to change cloths. 

What makes this hot spring so special?  Many praise its beautiful surroundings nested in the middle of the highlands between two of Iceland's biggest glaciers, Hofsjökull and Langjökull.  The place has interesting history which you will learn about during the tour.

We will pass both Gullfoss and Geysir the famous golden circle attractions on the way to Kerlingafjöll.  Therefore it is ideal if requested to make a short photo stop on the way to the highlands.

Please note that roads in the highlands are only accessible during summertime from July until early September
