South Shore and Eyjafjallajökull Super Jeep Tour from Reykjavik
Come visit the south coast and the vicinity of the unpronounceable Eyjafjallajökull volcano that erupted so memorably in 2010 and stopped many airports in Europe during that time. Why not do it in a Super Jeep to add on to the fun. The Super Jeeps are specially modified here in Iceland to get you to remote areas regular cars can't go. Nowhere else in the world you have the opportunity to get in one of those Jeeps and traverse through rough terrain and splashing in glacial rivers. Don´t let it slip you by!!!

Stop At: Seljalandsfoss, Hella Iceland
Waters from Eyjafjallajokull’s melting ice flow into the Seljalands River and into the sea but, before making the final leg of this journey, the waters pass over a high cliff forming the spectacular Seljalandsfoss Waterfall (foss means waterfall in Icelandic).The waterfall has a single clear drop of 60 m into a calm pool below set in a flat area of meadowland. The pathway to the waterfall actually leads directly behind the waterfall making it one of the few in the world that it is possible to walk behind. The area behind the waterfall also features a small cave.
Duration: 30 minutes
Pass By: Volcano Eyjafjallajokull, Selfoss Iceland
Eyjafjallajokull located in the Southern Region on Iceland’s southern coast. This volcano is famous for its 2010 eruption which effectively closed down air travel in northern Europe. It is also famous as being one of the most difficult names to pronounce
Stop At: Thorsmork, Reykjavik Iceland
Next, we will continue our way in the direction of Thorsmork and head all the way up to Gígjökull, one of the outlet glaciers of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano. You can walk entirely to the icefall edge, touch and walk on the glacier.
You can get an idea of the forces that were at play during the 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajokull that not only destroyed the agricultural region around it but stopped air traffic in Europe.
Powerful glacial bursts emerged from Gigjokull during the eruption, sending meltwater gushing down and flooding the surrounding landscape. You’ll witness that the impact of the eruption is still very visible in the area.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Skógafoss, Iceland
The Skógafoss is one of the biggest waterfalls in the country, with a width of 25 metres (82 feet) and a drop of 60 m (200 ft). Due to the amount of spray the waterfall consistently produces, a single or double rainbow is normally visible on sunny days.
Duration: 20 minutes
Stop At: Black Sand Beach, Vikurbraut, Vik 870 Iceland
Black Beaches of Iceland.
Why is the sand black? The simple explanation for this is that the tremendous power of the Atlantic ocean hammers on the lava rocks at the beach eroding them into ever smaller particles that make up for the sand at black beach. Thus the black sand is made up of tiny tiny rocks.The raw black lava sand landscape derives from previous glacial outbursts of the now dormant volcano Katla. This is a place of wild and dramatic beauty where the roaring waves of the Atlantic Ocean power ashore with tremendous force
Duration: 30 minutes
