GCR Super Trucks Adventure
an experience you will never forget
Why a Super Truck Tour!
A Super Truck tour is an adventurous way to experience Iceland. The powerful 4x4 trucks are customized in Iceland to handle the tough surroundings in the highlands and on glaciers. The Super Trucks are comfortable and well-equipped for rough short cuts and rugged roads. The Super Trucks are big toys we love to play with. The Super Truck tour‘s are personal, 2-10 people tours with a lot of guide interaction and opportunity to adjust tours to individual needs and preferences. The location and duration of stops are flexible and it is easy to add extra activities such as snowmobiling, quad biking, caving, horseback riding, glacier hiking and more!
This tour allows you to experience Iceland’s natural gems in the comfort of our 4x4 trucks. The first destination is Nesja-vellir Geothermal Plant, close to the volcano Hengill, which provides Reykjavik with both hot water and electricity in one of the world’s most environmentally friendly manner. Next, we stop at beautiful Þingvellir, where Iceland’s first parliament “Alþingi” was established in 930 AD. We then cross the mountain road of Lyngdalsheiði to reach the famous Geysir and then we drive to Iceland’s most well known waterfall Gullfoss, which cascades down 32 meters into the mighty glacial river Hvíta. After seeing Gullfoss up close, we head back to Reykjavík with a short photo stop at the explosion crater Kerið, which dates back approximately 6500 years.
Þórsmörk is a beautiful nature reserve situated between Eyja fjallajökull, Mýrdalsjökull and Tindfjallajökull glaciers, all of which contain active volcano‘s. Large 4x4 trucks are needed to reach this unique place. On the Þórsmörk tour, we drive through rugged roads and cross large unbridged rivers to reach the magnificent Þórsmörk valley, which offers a unique landscape of glaciers, rocks, and greenery. On the way we will see the great effect that the eruption in Eyjafjallajökull glacier had on the landscape. We will also stop at Seljalandsfoss. Upon your request, we may hike some of the many trails in the park and explore Stakkholtsgjá.
On the Landmannalaugar tour, we travel through Þjórsárdalur valley, stopping at Hjálparfoss waterfall and the viking house Stöng. From there, we drive through beautiful mountains and by the explosion crater Ljótipollur, before reaching Landmannalaugar. At Landmannalaugar, we will relax and bathe in the warm natural pond next to a lava field. From Landmannalaugar, we drive through Dómadalur, where we can see the famous and active Mount Hekla volcano, before driving through fertile farmlands back to Reykjavík.
The South Shore Track Tour
On this tour we head to the gorgeous waterfall Seljalands-foss, where you can walk behind the 40 meter high water-fall. After a refreshing shower from the spray of the waterfall, we will head to Skógafoss, a beautiful 60 meter high free falling waterfall. From there we drive on the black Reynisfjörur beach, see the great cliffs of Dyrhólaey, and Reynisdrangar, and witness the surf of the mighty Atlantic ocean blast on the shoreline.
West Country and Glasier
Glaciers are one of most powerful forces in shaping the Icelandic landscape. These vast masses of ice, formed from compressed snow, collected over thousands of years, have carved mountains and created deep valleys.
This tour lets you experience the magnificence of the glacier environment on Langjökull. We drive through Hvalfjörður, stop by Deildartunguhver, Europe´s largest hot spring, and visit Hraunfossar and Barnafossar waterfalls.
We reserve the right to change tours due to bad weather or poor road conditions.
Pic-up and drop-off is available anywhere in Reykjavik or its surronding area.

Everyone should experience at least once, the breathtaking beauty of Iceland’s frozen landscape, with vast glaciers, gushing hot springs, waterfalls and lava fields. Iceland’s wilder-ness offers freedom in many forms. It can be a perfect place to relax, unwind, and experience untouched nature or it can be one of the most exhilarating and fun playgrounds in the world. If you are seeking a holiday to rest or recharge your spirits, Iceland is the destination for you. Iceland is a country of extreme and striking contrasts. Geographically and environmentally it is unique; an arctic oasis trimmed with thick vegetation along the coastline while the highlands and the interior contain some of the most extreme landscape nature has to offer. Iceland is a fairly large country, but 80% of it is uninhabitable. Most of the population lives in the southwest of the country. Of Iceland’s 300,000 inhabitants, two thirds live in and around Reykjavik.
