Full description
You will begin your Icelandic adventure with pickup from your centrally-located Reykjavik hotel by private 4x4 Super Jeep, from where you will set out along Iceland’s rugged south coast. You can enjoy the endless panorama of snow-capped mountains, glacial rivers and jagged sea cliffs as you wind along the coast, before arriving at your first stop: the vast Urridafoss Waterfall. Located along the Thjórsá River, the falls are among the widest in Iceland, but remain off the tourist trail. If you are lucky here, you may even have this serene location to yourself. Following a short drive, you will jump out at the second photo stop of the day, looking up at the majestic Seljalandsfoss Waterfall. Here you can take the opportunity to walk behind the falls or climb to the top for an unbeatable view over the glacier. Afterwards, venture off the beaten track to see the Gljúfurárfoss Waterfall, hidden in a canyon behind Seljalandsfoss. You will then continue to perhaps the most famous waterfall of the South Iceland, Skógafoss, where you can stand in awe before the 197-foot-high falls. After admiring the mighty falls from below, you can climb the stairs to the viewing platform at the top of the falls for an even more impressive view. You can continue to enjoy the increasingly dramatic scenery as you drive past the Sólheimajökull, part of Mýrdalsjökull (Iceland’s largest glacier) where the landscapes change from rugged volcanic plains to walls of white ice and looming craters. Following a stop at Dyrhólaey (where the coastal cliffs and natural rock arch offer a habitat for a variety of native birds) you will continue to Reynisfjara Beach to stroll the black volcanic sands and admire the unusual rock formations. The final destination of the day is Vík í Mýrdal, Iceland’s southernmost village. It sits on the seafront, hemmed by the nearby imposing cliffs of Mount Reynisfjall. Here you will enjoy free time to explore its pretty buildings, visit the hilltop church, or browse the shops, before setting out on the return journey. Following an action-packed day tour, you will arrive back in Reykjavik where your tour ends with drop off at your hotel.
