Each vehicle is custom built with the biggest available road legal tires in the world. These Supertrucks are piloted by trained professionals who have an intimate knowledge of the sensitive Icelandic sub-Arctic nature.
Heading out of the city, the road leads you to The Mountain Track where you go ‘off road’. The Mountain Pass offers panoramic views over Lake Thingvallavatn, active volcano Hengill, the geothermal powerplant of Nesjavellir and its surroundings – truly a breathtaking view. Nesjavellir Power Plant, which was formally opened in 1990, powers a 190-megawatt geothermal plant, using the nearby field of boreholes, developing the largest high-temperature field in Iceland. This incredible geothermal field is in fact one of the main sources of hot water harnessed to heat houses of Reykjavik.
From Nesjavellir you’ll take the gravel road along Lake Thingvallavatn, driving along the lush farmlands of the south to the birch grown area of Thrastarlundur. Here, in this beautiful area you’ll make a short comfort stop before continuing your adventure. Head off the beaten track by way of a trail known as ‘The Thousand Waters’. Your convoy winds its way through numerous rivers, mud banks and streams before arriving back in the capital.
