Traverse these rugged terrains with ease in our rugged and comfortable Jeeps, led by a professional photographer who will guide you to the hidden gem of Laki, a remarkable volcanic fissure nestled in the southern highlands.
Laki, also known as Lakagigar, derives its name from the "craters of Laki" in Icelandic. This extraordinary geological wonder comprises a striking row of craters that emerged during a massive eruption in 1783-1784. This cataclysmic event unleashed widespread devastation and famine across Iceland, leaving an indelible mark on the history and geography of the region. Moreover, the eruption had far-reaching consequences, impacting climate and air quality in Europe and beyond.
Today, Laki stands as a captivating destination for intrepid hikers and passionate photographers, beckoning them to experience the raw beauty and dramatic vistas of Iceland's highlands. The surrounding area offers abundant hiking opportunities, enabling visitors to witness the volcanic ash, sprawling lava fields, and unique flora that flourishes in this extraordinary setting.
With the freedom and flexibility of a private tour, you'll have the privilege of capturing the mesmerizing natural splendor that encompasses the region. Frame majestic volcanic peaks, embrace the ethereal presence of nearby glaciers, and immerse yourself in the sheer vastness of the Icelandic wilderness.
This exclusive expedition extends beyond a mere exploration of Iceland's beauty; it is a dedicated photo tour. Our professional photographer will skillfully capture stunning images of participants at each location we visit, immortalizing their journey amidst these enchanting landscapes.
Make sure to equip yourself with hiking boots or comfortable shoes suitable for traversing rocky terrains. Lastly, carry a proper water bottle to stay hydrated, as the highlands can be arid.
