South East Iceland


A super jeep tour to the wonderful countryside of Lón, that contains many hidden gems of nature.


Easy, Family


Super Jeep
Slow Adventure




Our first stop is the airport, if needed to pick up passengers there, but this tour is also available by Eagle Air, with flight from Reykjavík to Höfn and back after the tour.

From the airport, we go on an adventurous tour, ending in the amazing Vatnajökull National Park.  We visit Stafafellsmountains which is a beautiful and peaceful area with magnificent nature. We will drive over mountain roads and visit canyons and waterfalls. This area is filled with photographic gems and magnificent colours in the nature.

After about 4 hours of wonderful nature we arrive back in Höfn for lunch (lunch not included) where you can experience fresh local food, and a short trip through the town of Höfn.

After lunch we go to the beautiful glacier lagoon Hoffell, that is a small and pristine glacier lagoon, and a perfect end of our tour where you can enjoy the magic and peacefulness from the glacier before we drive back.

The tour takes about 7-8 hours.

What’s included?
Drive in a super jeep.
A local English speaking guide.

What do I need to bring?
Outdoor clothing based on weather conditions at the time of the trip. Such as hat, gloves, rain coat, etc.
Good shoes, this trip does not involve a lot of hiking but hiking shoes are the best footwear for this landscape.
Good mood 🙂

South East ehf is a small family business  located in the town of Höfn on the southeast coast of Iceland.

Our names are Anna María and Siggi, we run this business and our aim is to make your visit to our beautiful area as magnificent as we can. We have lived here almost all our lives and know the area and all of its hidden gems.

We have one 4×4 Nissan Patrol on 38″ tires and one Ford Excursion extended on 45″ tires.  The Patrol takes 6 passengers and the Ford takes 10 passengers. We specialize in smaller groups and private tours but if we have a request for larger groups we do our best to supply the survice our customers seek.  We are so lucky to have friends with super jeeps to help us if needed.

Siggi is the driver and guide, he has worked for many years in our local rescue unit. He worked as a fisherman for about 23 years but for the last 7 years he has been a harbor pilot and the director of the port of Hornafjörður.

My wife and I visited beautiful Iceland this summer and went on a couple tours while there. The first was nice, and the scenery was, of course, amazing. But the tour we got from Siggi far exceeded our expectations.
We wanted a tour sort of off the beaten path. We didn’t want to be in a line of other cars seeing the same thing. Siggi said he had just the thing and boy did he deliver.
He picked us up from where we were staying and took us into some of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. He told us about local customs and history and the conversation was almost better than the views.
We stopped at many places to take photos and just experience the beauty and quiet of Iceland. The only other people we saw on our 5 hours tours was a group of hikers.
We do plan on going back and he will certainly be seeing Siggi again. We recommend him to anyone that doesn’t want to be with the tour bus crowd. Tell him what you are looking for and I am sure he will deliver.

Patrick HAmazing personalized Tour

Lut VThe best jeep tour ever.

What do you want from a tour guide? If it is professionalism, respect of the environment, pride in the surrounds, part of the community, adaptable, able to handle emergencies, treats the customer like a customer, no fuss and an ability to get into areas your rental car can’t go, then this company is the one. We were very happy with our trip into the East of Hofn and will remember the scenery for a long, long time.
