Experience the barren interior of Iceland and the lunar-like landscape where NASA trained the Apollo Astronauts. On this Askja Caldera tour you also catch a glimpse of iconic natural wonders such as Herðubreið Mountain, Herðubreiðarlindir Oasis and Jökulsá á Fjöllum Glacial River. You might also be able to spot trolls, ghosts and other creatures that are said to live in the area and have haunted travelers for centuries.

Description:
We drive across vast stretches of sand and fields of lava on a rugged mountain track towards Mt. Herðubreið, Iceland's national mountain. A short stop is made at Herðubreiðarlindir, an oasis in the desert. The Drekagil gully is explored before driving into the Askja caldera where we park next to craters from the 1961 eruption. From there we walk to Lake Askja and Víti, an explosion crater formed in 1875. The hike to Askja Caldera is around 30 minutes easy walk each way. This tour is an extensive exploration to the Iceland Highland were you experience the true power and beauty of Iceland's nature.
