This is the ideal tour for the nature lover, packed full of the contrasts unique to Iceland: white glacial vistas, flowing water and the black beach.
At the start of the day, you will be picked up in a modified super jeep and driven towards Gigjokull glacier tongue. Gigjokull stretches down from the famous Eyjafjallajokull volcano, which erupted in 2010. During the enormous eruption, millions of liters of melted ice from Eyjafjallajokull came bursting down the mountainside, causing massive floods and changing the scenery for years to come. To get to Gigjokull, you will clearly see why we have such big tires, because we must splash through several freshwater streams and glacier rivers to get there!
We’ll also visit Seljalandsfoss, one of Iceland’s most spectacular waterfalls. Here is another example of the immense power of the glaciers, as ice melt from the surrounding glaciers help create this beautiful waterfall.
After a visit to Seljalandsfoss, you will head towards the black beach, which reaches as far as the eye can see, where you will have some more fun with the super jeep.
On the way back to Reykjavik, you will make one last stop at the beautiful waterfall Skogafoss. While the driver inflates the huge tires of the jeep, you have the opportunity to take a close look at the waterfall, before heading back to Reykjavik after an eventful day on the south coast.
