Join this fantastic tour discovering and exploring the majestic volcanos of South Iceland, as well as a range of other fabulous attractions in the region. On the way, you will drive over Mt. Hengill, one of the volcanoes on the Reykjanes Peninsula, not far from the city, towards the South coast.

On the way down at the other side of Mt. Hengill, you will begin to see the South Coast volcanoes emerging in the distance. Hekla is probably Iceland's most active volcano, having erupted every decade years for centuries. 

Now, Hekla (lovingly referred to as 'she', not 'it' in Icelandic) has been quiet for 17 years, meaning the next eruption could happen any day. There is no need to worry though; for now, at least, she is a calm one and visitors will receive ample notice before an eruption. 

Driving through the south, you will see volcanoes on your left-hand side and the Atlantic black sand beach on your right. On your way to Eyjafjallajökull, you will pass some stunning waterfalls, such as the major attractions, Seljalandsfoss and Skógarfoss.

You will also make a stop at the Volcano Center in Hvolsvöllur. It is a newly opened interactive volcano museum that brings the volcanoes to life.

The black sand beach, Reynisfjara, is our last stop before turning back towards the capital. It is among the most stunning and most photographed places in Iceland. But be careful at the site, for every 10 minutes or so, the beach will be overcome with "Sneaker Waves". These have been known to drag unsuspecting visitors out to sea, so make sure not to stand close to the shoreline. 

This tour also allows for some flexibility, meaning you will likely stop at some of the less-visited attractions. It is also possible to add a snowmobile experience or a glacier hike if so desired. So no need to delay any longer!

Hurry now and you too can experience the mighty volcanoes along Iceland's South Coast. Check availability by choosing a date.
