Directions to Isafold Travel - 4x4 Tours
Ísafold is so much more than just a 4X4 tour operator! They guide you over rough lava fields, un-bridged rivers and black deserts, amongst waterfalls, volcanoes and glaciers. In addition to this, they guide you through the culture, cuisine and history of this unique land, to help you understand both the country and the spirit of Iceland.
Iceland is one of the last 'untouched' places in this part of the world. It's the least populated country in Europe and 2/3rds of the population live in and around the capital. The rest of the country? Wilderness. There is good infrastructure on the main routes, but in a lot of places, there are no roads at all.
That's where Ísafold's specially modified ISAK Land Rover Defenders (38' tyres, VHF Radio, Air compressor and Snorkel) come in. All of the scheduled tours involve sightseeing in the ISAKs, along with some combination of hiking, cuisine, culture and photography. In addition to these, Isafold puts together custom tours on request. The main tour categories are: 4X4 tours, culinary tours, culture tours and photography tours.
These self-drive tours involve driving your own 4X4 vehicle or renting one of theirs, and being guided around by an experienced off-road driver in a separate 4X4. The Summer Adventure takes you to the Golden Circle and the wilderness of Thorsmörk. The Real Icelandic Summer Safari takes you through the highlands north of Mýrdalsjökull- and Eyjafjallajökull glaciers, and the Summer Trophy takes you to the highlands north of Vatnajökull glacier. New this year are the Glacier and Volcano Challenge - a „Self-drive' tour around Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjöklull glaciers., and Vatnajökull Glacier Trophy - A very demanding „self-drive' tour of Vatnajökull, only for experienced off-road drivers.
These tours combine sightseeing with unique Icelandic foods, from the rich and varied seafood, to the herb-grazing Icelandic lamb, to wild game like reindeer, to vegetables grown in geothermally heated greenhouses. The Cool North tour takes you around the south-west of Iceland and to the Blue Lagoon, and the longer Taste of Iceland tour takes you along the sights from the west to the east and over the central highlands.
Guided by professional photographer and guide Haukur Snorrason, these tours take you around at a leisurely, photography-friendly pace around the camera friendly highlands of the south coast. On the extended tour, you can hike on and around Vatnajökull glacier and take a boat tour on the Glacier Lagoon. New this year is the Capture the West tour - A photography tour of the western part of Iceland.
Iceland is very mountainous and it offers countless opportunities for hiking. Some hiking tours include: Iceland on the rocks - 360°, which takes you to the main tourist attractions along route 1, including Landmannalaugar, the Fjallabak area, the Golden Circle and much more! Hike and Sheep combines touring and hiking with observing an iconic Icelandic tradition: Réttir, where all the farmers in an area ride out together to find their sheep in the wilderness. The Wild West tour takes you around the mountain landscapes of the Westfjords.
The Summer Fairytale is a family tour that takes you to popular tourist attractions while hearing stories about the Vikings, trolls and the hidden people (Icelandic elves). The Adventure up West has an easy pace with a combination of physical activities and relaxation in the Westfjords. New this year is the Saga Trail - Which takes you around the settings of the ancient Icelandic Sagas.
Go to Isafold Travel and have them cook up an exotic tour for you, because nothing lingers in your memory for quite as long as a unique adventure. Personal caring and attention to detail are Isafold Travel's words to live by, and it shows in every aspect of their service.
