Ultimate Iceland | Super Jeeps, The South Coast and Glacier Hiking

Ultimate Iceland | Super Jeeps, The South Coast and Glacier Hiking
Iceland is famous for its black sand beaches; visitors to these are blessed with views of the gorgeous surrounding nature, as well as the beating waves of the Atlantic Ocean.
Sólheimajökull glacier hiking is one of the most rewarding experiences that one can partake in here in Iceland.
Seljalandsfoss is known to be a jewel of the South Coast and is one of the country's most widely photographed waterfalls; even during wintertime, the waterfall stays illuminated for visiting photographers.
Thanks to the large amount of spray that clouds in front of the might waterfall, Skógafoss, rainbows will often appear, complimenting your already dramatic photos.
Glacier hiking requires a variety of safety equipment in order to ensure one's comfort on the icecaps, including: crampons, helmets and even walking poles.
Super Jeeps are a very common sight in Iceland; they are, after all, the only vehicle capable of traversing Iceland's often inaccessible terrain.

Hop aboard this adventurous one-day Super Jeep tour to the gorgeous South Coast of Iceland, with an added experience glacier hiking at the frosty Sólheimajökull glacier. This tour is an excellent opportunity for those travellers looking to maximise their holiday activity within a limited time frame.

After being picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavik, the day will begin with a visit to one of Iceland’s loveliest waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss. Here, the sure-footed can walk behind the thundering cascade to gain a new perspective on this glorious natural feature. Be careful, however, as the trail is narrow and slippery. Extra caution is especially required during the winter and good footwear is highly recommended. 

Seljalandsfoss is one of the most photographed features in Iceland... and for good reason! Its natural aesthetic is truly breathtaking. During the dark winter months, the waterfall is illuminated in lights,  ensuring that you can enjoy it’s magic all year round.

Next stop is at one of the largest waterfalls in Iceland, the impressive Skógafoss. The waterfall draws glacial water from the two ice caps that surround it, Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull. Visitors to Skógafoss can walk right up to this crashing water—just be prepared to get wet! The Skógafoss area is also the starting point for those that wish to hike Fimmvörðuháls to Þórsmörk, one of the most popular hiking routes in Iceland.

Finally, you will head to Sólheimajökull itself where you will have the opportunity to partake in a unique glacier hike. On this magnificent glacier—with its blue ice formations, dark crevasses and hidden caves—you will be accompanied by an expert guide who will provide you with all the tools you need: crampons, ice axes and helmets. This is to make sure you are safe as can be on this icy adventure.

Then, it's on to a fun action-packed drive to the black sand beaches of the south. These gorgeous coastlines boast panoramic views of the surrounding landscape; the distant mountains, the glaciers, the roaring waves of the Atlantic Ocean. When your time at the beach is over, you will return to your accommodation in the capital city. 

Don't miss out your opportunity to explore the many wonders of Iceland's South Coast, including the chance to hike the frozen expanse of Sólheimajökull icecap! Check availability by choosing a date.
