Winter Jeep Tours
Personal Trips in comfort with Salty Tours
When you travel to Iceland with a small group of friends, you may be tempted to simply rent a car and see the sights. To be frank, driving in Iceland in winter can be quite a challenge and, by driving yourselves, you will miss a lot. I know. Been there, done that–and in winter, that can spoil the holiday very quickly, let alone worrying about the driving or where to stop and eat or missing any of the sights. .
Salty Tours has built up an impressive list of positive reviews on sites like TripAdvisor.com for the simple reason that the owner, Þorsteinn, knows what he’s doing and he’s a mine of knowledge and interesting stories. His winter Jeep Tours cover a huge area and he knows it like the back of his hand. You can travel in the comfort of a Jeep and have a really personalised tour, tailored to your own interests and needs and see things you would not even know existed had you just driven around yourself.
These are all full-day tours from 8 to 14 hours and they cover quite a lot of territory, whilst ensuring that you get the very most out of the day. Travelling down the South Coast to the dreamlike landscape of Jökulsárlón, for instance, takes you over mountains, with spectacular views of steam towering up into the sky from the geothermal areas, down through the small towns of the south, under Eyjafjallajökull, whose eruption in 2010 is notorious, past waterfalls all the way to Europe’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull. Continuing on, the tour takes you to the unearthly fanstasy site of Jökulsárlón.
The slightly shorter South Shore Tour takes you on a similar trip, though not quite as far, and includes the magnificent basalt columns and black sand beaches of Reynisfjara. Get up close and personal with both a volcano and a glacier.
The Golden Circle Tour takes you through Þingvellir, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the location of the world’s oldest functioning parliament where you can see the forces of nature tearing the earth apart as the tectonic plates of N. America and Europe are clearly visible here. Then on to Geysir, with its spectacular boiling water eruptions every few minutes and its beautiful hot pools. A few kilometres away is the powerful waterfall of Gullfoss, with its winter coat of ice lining the walls of the cliffs and spectacular rainbows.
Winter is also the time to see the awesome Northern Lights as they sweep across the skies at night. This can be a bit of a mystery tour as, depending on the weather, the trips can go to a variety of places.
Salty Tours takes you to numerous other locations and specialises in the unusual like Photography safaris, Snowmobiles, Quad bikes or Glacier walks to push the boundaries of your holiday experience.
