Explore the Secrets of the South coast of Iceland in a day.
We start the day by traveling to the top of a volcano called Hengill. From this location most of the citizens of Reykjavik get hot water and electricity from a geothermal power station. All in a very efficient and environmentally friendly fashion. Here we will have a chance to learn how they operate.
On the next stop in our journey we head out to a beautiful waterfall called Seljalandsfoss along with local secret spots. We will have an option of walking behind the waterfall. We then drive towards the valley of the Thors to view the eruption site of Eyjafjallajökull and we will also show you a beautiful cave with a waterfall inside.
After we have enjoyed this location we will head out to the other side of the Glacier of Eyjafjallajökull and meet a farmer that lives under this big volcano of Eyjafjallajökull. At Þorvaldseyri you get to know the true spirit of a local Icelander as when most people think about the devastation from the volcanic eruption he thinks about opportunities and positive angles. Our next stop will be a spectacular 60 meter high waterfall called Skógafoss.
Then our drive will take us to the Sólheimajökull glacier where we can walk to the glacier roots, with proper safety gear that we bring with us. Here we will experience new ice caves, the glacier, and view how global warming is affecting us all. Our last stop of the day is looking at a columnar basalt formation as well as viewing the cape of Dyrhólaey. We then head back to Reykjavik city.
