When we get to Askja caldera we stop at the parking at Vikraborgir craters which erupted in 1961 . From there we walk the trail A1 (2.4 km) to Askja lake and Víti, an explosion crater. It is an unforgettable experience to visit Askja, one of Iceland’s top highlights. And more adventurous people can take a bath in Víti crater (don’t forget your towel).
Next stop is Drekagil, the Canyon of the Dragons. It’s a beautiful canyon where you can see strange rock formations. On the return journey we drive the gravel road 910, cross the Jökulsá river and to the remote Möðrudalur farm and stop at their café- and gift shop. We recommend their traditional Icelandic lamb and vegetables soup.
After the short break we continue to Reykjahlíð. As we will be in a small group (2-6 people) we are flexible and we can stop wherever we want to and the guide will recommend the most interesting places.
ATTENTION: The weather in the highlands can change very fast and it is important to have good shoes and warm and preferably waterproof clothes. Due to road or weather conditions, the tour might take longer than planned or in some cases force us to cancel the trip. If there is heavy snow, the walk from the car to the crater Víti will take longer and be more difficult.
