Eyjafjallajökull Super Jeep Tour

Eyjafjallajökull is the infamous glacier that erupted in 2010. The eruption was from the top crater of the glacier and melted lots of ice causing big flooding in the rivers coming down the slopes of Eyjafjallajökull. It caused massive flight problems all over Europe and terrorized farmers all around it with it's black volcanic ash spreading around slowly like fog.

We'll drive up the glacier in a highly equipped 4x4 Super Jeep getting an astounding view over the whole highland area, the south coast and the Westman islands. Not to forget the amazing sight of the glacier itself viewed from above.

This tour gives you the perfect glacier experience; an exciting Super Jeep drive in the snow, walk on the glacier and the magnificent sightseeing!

** Eyjafjallajökull **

Eyjafjallajokull is the 6th largest ice caps of Iceland, located just north of Skógar and west of Mýrdalsjökull. The ice cap covers the caldera of a volcano with a summit elevation of 1,666 metres (5465 ft). The volcano has erupted relatively frequently since the last glacial period, most recently in 2010. The 2010 eruptions caused enormous disruption to air travel across western and northern Europe over an initial period of six days in April 2010.

** Seljalandsfoss **

Seljalandsfoss is one of the best known waterfalls in Iceland. The waterfall falls 60 m (197 ft) and has its origins from the volcano/glacier Eyjafjallajökull. One of the fascinating things about this waterfall is that people can walk behind it into a small opening.
