“A great way to learn about Iceland”

Attraction details
Owner description: Nature Explorer offers tours in Iceland in Super Jeeps or Super-Trucks, which are modified 4x4s, which enable us to safely drive on glaciers and across unbridged rivers and reach otherwise inaccessible terrains, so that you can explore more of Iceland. We are a small, family run Icelandic tour operator, with a team of expert driverguides with background in Mt. Search & Rescue, 4x4 instructors and professional guides. We have a passion for Iceland and take pride sharing it in a personalized service on a variety of day and multi day tours. On our day tours out of Reykjavik we have the smallest group size in the industry, only 5 passengers per Super Jeep, but we can also cater to larger groups, and we offer private tours. We hope we can share your Iceland adventure.

We were very fortunate to have the exclusive services of Ingi for our Golden Circle and Glacier tour. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about both the tour locations and Iceland generally and having the Jeep to ourselves meant that we could spend as much time as we wanted in each location, rather than having to stick to the fixed schedule of a larger coach.

We could perhaps have driven ourselves between the Golden Circle locations, but we wouldn't have been able to drive on to the glacier - that required both a 4WD vehicle with enormous tyres and a skilled off-road driver. Once we turned on to the mountain track Ingi just turned on the GPS and we followed the track of where the road supposedly was, under the snow, while carefully avoiding the large boulders. The view from the glacier, and the surrounding silence, was magical and the highlight of the day.

One word of caution - the tour would also have been fine with four people, but if the party had been any larger the Jeep would I think have started to feel a little too crowded.

Thank you for kind words and taking the time to write a review.
Our Super-Jeeps have seats for 6 but we don't put more than 5 customers in each Super-Jeep, to make sure it doesn't get too tight. With only 5 people in each vehicle, we have the smallest group size in the industry - which again makes us able to be more flexible.
* We can arrange for larger Super-Trucks for larger families and groups.

We had a great day together with Nature Explorer Tours riding in their very cool Super Jeeps. We drove to the foot of the vulcano Eyjafjallajokull that erupted a few years ago distrupting the European flight traffic. What an experience you feel very small, but in safe hands of our guide Haukur who was very good at explaining Icelandic history and the fantastic geology we saw in a fun and exciting way. Even though we crossed streams and steep hills you always felt safe and in good hands enabling us to enjoy all the unique moments and amazing scenery incl. waterfalls and the great wide open. We can highly recommend this trip as an experience for a lifetime,,,,

My wife and I booked a tour with this company. The process for booking was easy and they were very friendly. Our guide -- Valdimar - picked us up at our hotel. The truck was clean and very cool. Our guide was professional at all time. Equally important, was his concern for our safety at all times. He watched out for my wife which I very much appreciated. It was also good to have a guide who was very knowledgeable of the country. We took the private Eyjafjallajokull tour which was well worth it!!!

We recommend this company.

We took two tours with Nature Explorer. Our guide and driver, Ingi Mar, took us on both tours. He was very knowledgeable about Iceland and a great driver. We had so much fun and saw so many beautiful sites. What a special and unique way to see Iceland.
We will definitely use Nature Explorer again when we return to Iceland.
