Hurry now and join this superb super-jeep tour exploring the many majestic attractions of Iceland's South Coast, as well as the frozen slopes of Eyjafjallajökull glacier. 

You will start this adventurous day by being picked up at your Reykjavík accommodation in our modified super jeep, a vehicle capable of traversing even the most extreme Icelandic terrain. You will then be driven towards Gigjökull glacier, a glacier tongue coming down from the famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano. Eyjafjallajökull erupted in 2010, causing turmoil to European air traffic.  

During this enormous eruption, millions of litres of melted ice originating from Eyjafjallajokull came bursting down the mountainside, causing massive floods that would change the landscape for years to come. Before we arrive at Gígjökull, the super-jeep will cross a number of rivers, really showing off what this vehicle's large tyres are capable of. 

At Gígjökull, you will have the opportunity to marvel at the staggering blue and black ice that covers the nearby mountainside. Seeing one of Iceland's glaciers up close is, truly, one of the most mesmerising experiences available in Iceland, and it is one of the key experiences that makes this country so special.

After enough time at the glacier, you will begin your return journey home; by no means the end of your adventure, however. You will next see Seljalandsfoss, one of Iceland’s most spectacular waterfalls. Seljalandsfoss is a rare example of where you can actually have a look behind the cascading water and come out on the other side

After a walk behind the waterfall we will head towards the black sandy beaches that reach as far as the eye; here, you will have even more fun with the super-jeep, driving past the rolling waves of the Atlantic. You will also make a lunch stop, though this will fit in as best with the attractions of the day. 

On the way back, you will make the last stop for the day, Skógafoss. While the driver inflates the huge tires of the jeep, you will have the opportunity to take a closer look at this beautiful, 15 m wide waterfall before heading back to Reykjavík.

So what are you waiting for? Hurry now and you too can experience the incredible landscape of the South Coast, as well as the immense glacier, Eyjafjallajökull. Check availability by choosing a date.
