Discover the mythology, the back-trails and the eclectic landscapes of the Streiti Coast by partaking in this Super Jeep sightseeing tour. This is the perfect opportunity for guests to get a more personal, intimate experience whilst exploring this beautiful stretch of East Iceland.
You will take this tour from the backseat, while your knowledgeable and friendly guide navigates the craggy back roads in a modified 4x4 super jeep. As you drive off-road through sweeping canyons and rushing river beds, your guide will be eager to point out interesting landmarks and share with you the history and culture of the region.
Make sure not to forget your camera; the passing scenery is too picturesque not to take a snapshot. As you head to your first destination, you will stop off a traditionally rural Icelandic church, an excellent opportunity to learn more about the folklore of the region.
Following the river, you will arrive at the first major stop on your tour, the hidden waterfall Beljandi, a true gem amidst an already beautiful landscape. The waterfall is uncharacteristic of other waterfalls in Iceland, due to how low and wide it stretches. Whilst here, you will be surrounded by a ring of snow-peaked mountains and rolling farmland.
From the waterfall, you will drive south of the valley to a peninsula characterised by its steep cliff faces. Here, you will take a thirty-minute hike down the rocky Streiti shoreline. Following a marked trail, you will have excellent views of the Streitishvarf Lighthouse and truly be able to appreciate the geological variety and majesty of your environment; they don’t call it the land of ice and fire for nothing.
Book now and you too can explore the backcountry of East Iceland by Super Jeep. Rugged shorelines, cascading waterfalls and cultural landmarks all await. Check availability by choosing a date.
