Pack Your Bags: Icelandic Super Jeeps


We are back in Reykjavic
after several days out on the road.

Literally, we slept out in a hut last night
after spending the past two days crawling around
the mountains of Iceland in these bad boys.





Icelandic SuperJeeps 
are the biggest cars you have ever seen.

Like monster trucks, but bigger, and practical.

(Not just for rolling over other cars? Why is that?)

Though you spend most of your time 
going up the steepest inclines you've never imagined
on snowy volcanos and summits,

you also get to go to some rugged non-snow destinations, too.

Like Haifoss- which means the "high waterfall."






My breath was taken away 
when I walked around the edge 
to reveal the canyon below.






Literally, I got so excited
I started yelling at Tyler 
and running around the edge
like a yellow lab upon finding
a squirrel sneaking under the fence.















If you come to Iceland,
check out getting a super jeep.

We take one up Hekla (the snoozing volcano)
and out to Landmannalaugur
for a night at the hut.

We use Iceland Explorers to book our trips
and they do an amazing job!

*Note: You can drive many places by yourself in Iceland,
however- to reach some places (Landmannalaugur & Thorsmock), 
you'll need professional drivers
on professional vehicles!
