Join this tour and go on a magical journey around the beautiful and varied nature surrounding the village of Vík in South Iceland. This super jeep tour is ideal for those travelling the South Coast and wish to see the untouched nature of Iceland.

Vík is within easy access from Reykjavík, and the South Coast is well worth the visit if you want to explore the countryside during your stay in Iceland. On this tour, you'll get to delve deep into the unspoilt Icelandic nature as you are driven up a mountain and rugged hills for a spectacular panoramic view of the surrounding landscapes.

You'll be picked up from Vík in the evening and taken to the first stop by Reynisfjall mountain. There, you’ll have magnificent views of the great Mýrdalsjökull glacier and Dyrhólaey peninsula to the west, and you will be given plenty of time to soak up the atmosphere, take photos, admire the landscape, and walk around this beautiful area. 

From there, you'll stop at the scenic Sjónarhóll hill, where you can admire the town of Vík from above. After that, you’ll head down the mountain and then slowly return to the village.

As this tour departs in the evening, you will be immersed in the dreamy glow of the setting sun, and see the amazing scenery bathed in the soft mellow colours of the twilight. Depending on the time of year, you can see the long midnight sun in the summer or the snowy landscape soaked in the rays of the winter sun during the colder months.

You’ll hear the distant sound of the crashing ocean waves, blended with the calls of the seabirds flying above and the howling of the wind from all directions. The salty aroma of the sea and the freshness of the air will invigorate you and make the tour even more magical. 

You can add to that the surging adrenaline that you will undoubtedly feel rushing through your body as you are driven up and down the rugged hills around Vík. 

Discover the stunning landscape surrounding the village of Vík, and watch as the sun sets on the South Coast of Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.

    The views from the mountain over Vik were magical! We were lucky enough to be there when there was a rainbow. Seeing the rock formation the Three Trolls from above is a unique perspective. Our guide Gísli was great!!! He has a lot of experience driving the crazy mountain roads since he leads paragliding tours from the top of the mountain. Gísli shared interesting information about the area and personal experiences growing up in Iceland. Gísli drove us back to town on the old highway 1. It is amazing that anyone every got through that rough road! We would highly recommend this tour! Gísli and True Adventure also have a zipping tour that we hope to check out next time.
