Gjástykki SuperJeep Tour!

Gjastykki is a beautiful and rugged rift valley to the north of the caldera Krafla, in the north of Iceland.

Gjastykki was literally blown apart by the eruption of Krafla during the years 1975-1984. Two of the three areas that were active during that time are still warm.

The area is covered with multicolored slag from the Krafla eruption and bears stark witness to the movement of the tectonic plates.

On this 8 hour tour you will experience both common destination points of interest and some less visited, where you will enjoy a unique local experience of solitude and tranquility

    Pass By: Húsavíkurfjall, Iceland

    Squeezing Húsavík towards Skjálfandi Bay, Húsavík Mountain – Húsavíkurfjall in Icelandic – seems to watch over the town and it plays a major role in the landscape, despite the far from impressive elevation of 417 mt a.s.l. In winter it gets covered in an immaculate white cloak while in summer the green slopes become purple for the thousands of blossoming Lupin flowers.

    Pass By: Theistareykjarbunga, Iceland

    Enjoy and be part of the colourful Þeistareykir Geothermal Area in North-Iceland.

    Þeistareykir is a colourful geothermal area in North-Iceland, much less visited than the well-known geothermal areas up north Mt. Námafjall, Mt. Krafla and Leirhnjúkur. Þeistareykir is a very active fumarole area with clay pools and solfataras.

    Pass By: Viti Crater, Road 863, Lake Myvatn Iceland

    Viti is a large crater, located near lake Myvatn in Northern Iceland. It is filled with bright blue water that changes into a different shade of blue at every perspective. Viti is surrounded by lava fields and a very colorful geothermal area, reminding you how incredible Iceland's landscape is.

    As you stand at the edge of the volcano you can look into a 140 meter deep and about 800-1000 meter in diameter opening and enjoy an exhilarating view into the wide open from this ancient giant.
