About the tour

We begin this journey, starting in Reykjavik and travel towards the breathtaking waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss. Be sure to watch out the window at the beautiful landscape, seaside and hopefully get a glimpse of the Westman Islands.

At Seljalandsfoss, make your way up the steep staircase to catch a glimpse of what it looks like behind a waterfall. Feel the power as the water drops from the famous glacier, Eyjafjallajokull.

From here the tour begins off-road towards Thorsmork Valley, one of Iceland’s most beautiful highlands. Crossing rivers and rough terrain we head to the Gigjokull Glacier, an outlet of the famous Eyjafjallajokull volcano. Your experienced driver will take you as far as the weather conditions allow. After a short walk around the area, the tour continues its journey down the south coast towards Skogafoss Waterfall.

At Skogafoss be sure to catch this waterfall from two views, in front and above. Do you have what it takes to walk the 60 meters of stairs?

The final stop of the day before returning to Reykjavik is Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach, located near Vik. Reynisfjara is home to the iconic basalt stacks. This black sand beach is widely popular for photographers and people who wish to enjoy a nice walk on the rocky sand. Please be aware that these are treacherous waters. High, powerful waves which sometimes flood the beach, can easily carry you out to sea.
