Amazing Super Jeep tour. See the breathtaking Fjaðrárgjlúfur Canyon and the beautiful Fagrifoss Waterfall. We will also explore the Craters of Landbrotshólar pseudo-craters, a lesser-known parts of Iceland's south.

This 3 hours excursion is perfect for those who want to connect with nature far from any tourist crowds but do not have the time to take the full day tour.

The tour begins in Kirkjubæklaustur, a southern town often nicknamed Klaustur by locals. Many visitors to Iceland will find themselves in this historic location as they travel the South Coast; it is between the village of Vík Í Mýdral and the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, and is steeped in religious heritage.

Your guides will pick you up in a Super Jeep, and whisk you into a remote region that few get the chance to access; the road goes over bumpy trails and across shallow rivers, making for an exciting journey. 

Your first destination is the little-known Fagrifoss waterfall, nestled deep in the mountains. You will stop to admire its scale and picturesque beauty, as well as its dramatic, verdant surroundings.

Your guide will then escort you above Fjaðrárgjlúfur canyon, and during a roughly twenty-five-minute hike you will marvel over its sheer walls and the azure waters running below. You need not repeat your trail when you come to the canyon end, as your Super Jeep will be waiting for you at its base.

You will then continue your tour, admiring the marvelous surrounding nature on the cusp of the Southern Highlands, to Landbrotshólar. This is a huge area with thousands of specially formed volcanic craters called pseudo-craters, and such features are incredibly rare around the world; they are much more common, unusually, on the planet Mars. You will have the chance to enter one of the craters and to explore the lava, as your guide tells you all about their geological history.

Finally, you will return to the super jeep and be whisked back to Kirkjubæklaustur.
