East West

We firmly believe that in order to experience and enjoy all Iceland has to offer, one must let go of time and give into nature. Therefore our aim is to travel in adequate speed, make frequent stops for best photo opportunities possible and enjoy our journey together. Our trips are operated in Super Jeeps and Sprinter but for more information, tailor made trips and other vehicle requests, please contact us.

Slow drive
Iceland is a beautiful country with various scenes of nature. It is very photogenic and each scenery takes time to inhale and grasp. Therefore it is our mission to cover our journey in a manner that is relaxing, enjoyable and memorable.

Locations usually bear a lot of stories, whether they are of Vikings, Elves, Trolls or modern Icelandic people. These stories are both full of knowledge and good humor. Lets take in all the landscape, stories and atmosphere in good time.

 

Great rides
In order to ensure both safety and comfort we operate in vehicles designed for Icelandic conditions. We offer both minibuses and enhanced Super Jeeps to be able to meet rapid weather conditions. There is an Icelandic saying: „If you don´t like the weather, then just wait 5 minutes.“

It is quite an experience to ride in a Super Jeep. Huge tires (42″) can take you over big rivers and up to glaciers to a fantastic view and the unique cold that comes from the massive ice. Our Sprinter is a very comfortable ride and suits perfectly for observing all the miscellaneous scenes of nature on the route.

Secret spots
Geysir, Gullfoss, Þingvellir, Jökulsárlón, the Blue Lagoon. These are all fantastic phenomenons. But there are countless other precious gems spread around the country. Why limit your visit to what everybody else is doing?

Come see waterfalls, geysers, caves, beaches and lava fields covered with moss just as astonishing and hear stories in the meantime.

 

 

After all, we are on holiday.
