Drive through white glacial rivers, craters and waterfalls in the vast highlands of the outlaws.
Starting in Akureyri the Super Truck takes you over an old mountain road that lead to the birch and flowered covered Vaglaskógur forest. There will be a brief photo stop here and some time to enjoy the sounds of the singing birds and rustling leaves.
Following a glacial river
Skjálfandafljót River is a white glacial river originating at Vatnajökull glacier, the largest ice cap in Iceland. This bright turquoise and white river runs through the highlands, carving out magnificent riverbeds on its way. We will be driving along this beautiful river until we reach Bárðardalur Valley, where we’ll make a stop at a local guesthouse. Meet the locals and see the small exhibition dedicated to the outlaws that once lived in the lava fields and travelled these vast highlands.
Amazing waterfalls and lunch
Then it’s time to see Aldeyjarfoss Waterfall, where white water cascades from a high cliff into a ravine lined with black basalt columns. From the waterfall we’ll drive along a mountain road that leads to the magical Lake Mývatn. Admire the incredible view from the craters at Skútustaðir before having lunch at a local restaurant. Afterwards we’ll head back to Akureyri with a stop at Goðafoss, “Waterfall of the Gods”.
