A Super Jeep is essentially a very robust type of all-terrain vehicle with four-wheel drive. It’s designed to take you off-road and onto landscapes that few other people see on conventional tours.
The name "jeep" is said to have originated from World War II when the US Army brought their "general purpose vehicle" over. The phrase “general purpose” or “GP” was slurred until the name stuck as “jeep.” This name was translated to Icelandic as “jeppi.” When the vehicles began to be modified with bigger tires, they called them “super jeeps.”
But they’re not vehicles that you can buy. Typically, they’re modified and refurbished so that they better respond to the local conditions.
