There you will make a short stop, about 20 minutes, before heading off road, putting the super jeep to the test. The stop at either Geysir or Gullfoss will be made longer, to offer you the chance to buy a hearty lunch. The next destination is Langjokull glacier. You will drive through bumpy mountain roads to reach it and then drive around the glacier area for a while.
