When travelling Iceland, there is nothing that can quite prepare you for the majesty of the High North. Iceland’s wide, untamed landscapes provide the ideal backdrop to adventure and a real holiday away from civilisation.
There are many options for visitors to Iceland to experience nature and see more than just Reykjavik; but a coach tour is the same ponderous, cramped, uncomfortable experience it is anywhere else in the world – and certainly not the ideal way to connect with the pristine open Icelandic nature.
Rental cars are another popular choice, but they too have their drawbacks. For a start, it is impossible to know all the best places in an unfamiliar country. Secondly, visitors would usually rather watch the passing landscape than concentrate on the passing tarmac. Thirdly, and most importantly, two-wheel-drive rental cars are not allowed on Iceland’s gravel mountain roads – that is to say MOST of the country’s roads. And 4×4 hire can be prohibitively expensive.
The third option is a tailored Iceland super jeep tour, like those offered by High North. In the murky past when the Icelandic krona was still over valued and High North was still only the dream of its adventurous owners, super jeep tours were an expensive luxury for foreign visitors. Now they are within far easier reach.
High North is run by friendly and experienced mountain guides who know Iceland like the backs of their hands and who endeavour to make every single trip a unique experience. They achieve this by trying to enjoy every Iceland tour as much as their guests do.
High North offers a range of pre-planned tours of Iceland’s most popular tourist hotspots (each with a unique added twist, of course); but the company really excels in arranging great value tailored tours to the customer’s exact specifications.
From salmon fishing to trolls and elves or from glacier hopping to a saga trail, the experts at High North can help you get the most out of your trip in Iceland, whatever that means to you.
