We are a Swiss couple and wanted to visit Askja from Myvatn - initially is a small group, but due to availability issues we ended up booking 2 seats in the 4x4 bus. It was a great decision! Basically you travel at the same rhythm than other smaller 4x4 super cars and at the end you do the same tour - for less money. If you are ok to share the bus with other 30 people, this is the best option. Now, there is also the quality of the staff... we had Hrefna as guide, a cheerful Icelandic woman, born in Selfoss and living in Reykjavík. She was amazing, knew and explained every detail of the surroundings, told plenty of stories about trolls, elves, outlaws, love and drama - and she even signed several Icelandic songs. She was fantastic! The driver - Axel - did an excellent job dealing with the challenging road and the rivers. So, I strongly recommend to take this tour!

The Askja Classic day trip was a wonderful experience I would not have wanted to miss during my Iceland road trip. Oddrun, our tour leader was very knowledgable and passionate about the area we explored. Our small group had plenty of time at the various points of interest and especially at the Viti Crater and Askja Caldera to take photos. We were also given an optional opportunity to hike into a canyon which I really enjoyed. This northern part of the Highlands offers an amazing scenery which is very different from the southern Highlands. Axel, the driver of our tour did an excellent job driving on this challenging road and through the river.

Great to hear! Askja caldera is a true diamond in the rough. It is out of this world.

A wonderful trip, spectacular landscapes and a great guide that explained a lot of things, we stopped at several places where she explained and left us time to take photos. The only point we didn't like was that there was not enough time to go down and take a dip in Víti geothermal lake.

Hæ hæ! Great to hear that you had good time. It is strange if you did not have time to take a dip. Was the weather not good or the condition to go down to the crater not good. I am not sure. If one of this is not fine then the guide is worried about the client and does not give time for that maybe. We let the guide value how things are because the weather and the condition change every day. But I am glad you got to see this amazing place and explore the highlands of Iceland. Hopefully you can coma again to Iceland and then have time to dip in the water :)

Askja is one of the wildest and most beautiful places in Iceland. To avoid a potentially dangerous trip, we decided to join a bus that takes travelers to the inside of the reserve safely. The bus is capable of crossing water crossings and traveling in bad roads. Each bus has a guide. Our guide gave lots of interesting explanations throughout the trip. The ride was comfortable and very interesting. Trip times are accurate. We had a lot of fun.
