The journey is very long and very uncomfortable although it is true that the views are beautiful. The guide was very good

Delve into the Icelandic wilderness on this day trip to the Askja Volcano: marvel at the stunning natural landscapes and bathe in steaming hot springs. What are you waiting for?

Askja Volcano Day Trip

On the day of your excursion, you'll meet first thing in the morning on the banks of Myvatn Lake in Reykjahlíð, ready to set off on your adventure into the Icelandic highlands.

Throughout the journey through the breathtakingly beautiful landscapes of Iceland, you'll make several stops to stretch your legs, have something to eat (food not included), and marvel at the spectacular views around you. After around a three to four hour drive, you'll arrive at the Askja Volcano

You'll have approximately two and a half hours of free time to explore the area around the Askja Caldera at your own pace. Take photos to immortalise the unique scenery, relax in the fresh mountain air or, if you're feeling energetic, follow the short half hour walking trail from the car park up to Askja Lake and the Viti Crater. There, you'll have the opportunity to enjoy a dip in the natural pools (weather permitting)... and don't worry, they're hot springs so the water is always between 20 and 30 degrees celsius! 

Then, after a brief stop in Drekagil, your Askja Volcano tour will come to end, and you'll be dropped back off at your original departure point in Reykjahlíð.
