Join this exciting day tour exploring the many wonders of Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull region. This short and exciting Super Jeep excursion along the country's picturesque South Coast is the perfect tour opportunity for travellers looking to immerse themselves in Icelandic nature.

Your tour will begin from the operator's base at Gljúfrabúi, from where you will begin your journey along the gorgeous South Coast. Riding in the passenger seat of a Super Jeep, you can feel safe knowing this vehicle is capable of handling almost any terrain thrown at it. 

This incredible area is famed for its natural beauty—on the road, you'll have a vista of sweeping mountains and towering cliffs to your left, and on your right, the rolling blue waves of the North Atlantic. How often does one get a panorama like that?

Given the small group sizes, it's easy to pull the Super Jeep up at a number of interesting sites, including cascading waterfalls, scenic viewpoints and even the infamous black sand beach, Reynisfjara, known for its dangerous "sneaker waves" and hexagonal basalt columns. Reynisfjara can be found right beside the charming coastal village of Vík í Mýrdal, an excellent place to stop for souvenirs or a bite to eat. 

You will also visit the roots of Eyjafjallajökull volcano, most famous for the 2010 eruption that shut down air traffic over mainland Europe.  This incredible feature is sure to take your breath away with its sweeping crevasses and frozen wastes. 

When conditions are good, you will be driven up the slopes of the glacier from where you will be blessed with panoramic views over the whole South Coast. 

So what's the holdup? Hurry now and you too can experience the natural delights of Eyjafjallajökull's icecap, as well as the many beautiful attractions found along Iceland's South Coast. Check availability by choosing a date.
