"Take a bus tour to Askja" Iceland Off The Beaten Path Tip by bkathryn
Iceland Off The Beaten Path: 174 reviews and 214 photos
Drive or take a bus tour from near Reykjahlíð into the interior to the old volcanic caldera - Askja. While it is not recommended to drive on your own into the interior, it is possible. It’s pretty rugged and if you go, you shouldn’t do it alone - have another vehicle with you. It was amazing. Flat and barren except for the odd volcanic cone and volcanic cores sticking up from the generally flat lava plateau and the odd oasis of green shrubs managing to grow in small areas. One of the things we saw along the way in August 1997 was Herðubreið, this mountain.
