We challenge you to find a more adventurous tour around Iceland. You have the option of participating by renting your own heavily modified off-road Jeep or Truck or catch a ride as a passenger in one of our guide vehicles. The tour is guided through two way radio on a private frequency when driving, and in person during hikes and stops. While we visit all of Iceland's best known destinations, this tour goes where few tourists ever get to travel. We drive along tracks and routes not passable for rental cars or regular tourist busses. If you want to truly experience the serenity and beauty Icelandic landscape and nature, and put your off-road driving skills to the test, in your own private truck, this just might be the experience of your life! Even if you just want to relax and let us do the driving, this tour gives unparalleled access to the majestic Icelandic highlands and interior!

Our expert advice on where to stay in Akureyri

For easy access to Akureyri's most popular attractions, restaurants, and stores, consider staying in the lively waterfront area. This area features a number of hotels and hostels within walking distance of the city's museums, galleries, and sites. Cost-conscious visitors should explore one of the more inland guesthouses. Some double as student housing but are generally not raucous. Vacation apartments provide a good base for those planning a longer stay in the northerly metropolis and many are centrally located. To make the most of the scenic countryside surrounding the city, opt for a campsite or cottage in the outskirts.
