Fire, Ice and Four-Wheels in Iceland

Take part in an adrenaline-fuelled adventure, driving across the entirety of Iceland from south to north, in a cross-country challenge that carves through some of the most stunning volcanic scenery on Earth.

- The adventure will be led by one of the finest polar exploration guides, who has led an expedition to the South Pole in these very models of vehicles. His knowledge of driving in tough environments is unrivalled

- The adventure starts the moment you land in Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik. You will be met by a private driver, who will transfer you to a stunning remote lodge. Here you will have the opportunity to settle in and relax before a driving brief from your off-roading expert guide

- After an introduction to your vehicle, you will start the crossing of Iceland. The first day will be a glorious climb into the mountains, past hot springs and through glacial rivers, stopping for lunch in a remote and stunning location. In the afternoon, you will climb higher still on the gravel track, reaching your base before sunset

- The base for the next two nights is a rustic highland lodge, high in the mountains, which will be specially revamped for the occasion – think reindeer rugs and open fires and you’re on the right track. A renowned local chef will be flown in to ensure that the cuisine is as breathtaking as the surroundings

- The next day you will drive to a glacier to put your driving skills, and the trucks, to the test. You will also swap wheels for tracks as you hop onto snowmobiles. The fleet will head off across the snow, making for an ice cave

- On the third and last day of driving, you will set out to complete the four-wheel crossing of Iceland. The route will comprise yet more testing conditions, through beautiful valleys and dramatic gorges in the shadow of dormant volcanoes

- The drive concludes at a luxury lodge, arguably the finest and most isolated in Iceland, where you can enjoy massages and a swim before a final celebratory supper and a spectacular helicopter return flight to Reykjavik the next day
