A truly mysteriously unique and beautiful country, Iceland needs to be seen by your own eyes to fully understand this majestic land. After spending a day or two in Reykjavik, you will be forever grateful that you booked an exciting tour of Iceland’s backcountry in a souped-up four-wheel-drive vehicle. Tour and Travel will take you through some of the most beautiful scenery you will ever see.
Pick You Up
The tour starts when a specialized 4WD car picks you up from your hotel, a great way to start any trip. The vehicles are either a Jeep or a Landcruiser or similar, customized to handle the treacherous terrain that Iceland can throw at you when you veer off the beaten path. The vehicles feature heavy-duty suspension systems, reinforced steering, added horsepower, and of course, massive tires that, when deflated to 2psi, the 4WD car is lighter per square inch than a man walking across the snow.
Knowledgeable Tour Guide
The vehicles are all driven by guides who are both extremely knowledgeable about the terrain of Iceland and how to navigate the unforgiving landscape as well as highly experienced 4WD drivers. The drivers come from both nature and hiking guide backgrounds that are enthusiastic with both 4x4s and the beautiful countryside of Iceland.
