Witness the versatile wonders of the South Coast on this private super jeep excursion, visiting the mountain ridge Þórsmörk and hiking through the great canyon Stakkholtsgjá. If you’re looking for a personal sightseeing experience in the land of ice and fire, this is the adventure for you.

Your journey begins with a pickup in Reykjavík City, where you’ll meet and greet your local guide and board your super jeep with the rest of your small group of travel companions. If your team exceeds five people, you can upgrade to a larger vehicle, guaranteeing you and your friends, or family, a personal and intimate South Coast excursion.

Then, you’ll begin your drive along this incredibly scenic coastline, until reaching the mountain ridge Þórsmörk, a lush oasis of a valley that rests between the three glaciers Eyjafjallajökull, Mýrdalsjökull and Tindafjallajökull. These magnificent ice caps not only give the area a panoramic scenery of stunning natural beauty but provide a shelter, giving the valley its own weather system. 

Then, you’ll continue to the famous waterfall Seljalandsfoss, made all the more singular in that it boasts a cave behind it, which is accessible during the summer months, giving hikers the opportunity of looking out its curtain of water at the lush coastal scenery.

After admiring the falls, you drive onwards to Gígjökull Glacier, wading across a former glacier lagoon that the 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajökull wiped out. You will then enjoy a short hike to the foot of the glacier, taking in the breathtaking landscape. 

Then, you will make your way to Stakkholtsjá and embark on a hike to the bottom of this ethereal canyon. After making your way back to the vehicle, you’ll head on to the campsite Básar to stretch your legs before returning to Reykjavík City.

Secure your spot now on this private super jeep adventure, exploring both the highlights and hidden gems of the South Coast of Iceland, hiking through incredible wilderness along the way. Check availability by choosing a date.
