At the start of the day, you will be picked up in a modified super jeep and drive towards Gigjokull glacier tongue. Gigjokull stretches down from the famous Eyjafjallajokull volcano, which erupted in 2010. During the enormous eruption millions of liters of melted ice from Eyjafjallajokull came bursting down the mountainside, causing massive floods changing the scenery for years to come.
To get to Gigjokull, you will clearly see why we have such big tires, because we must splash through several fresh water streams and glacier rivers to get there!
Seljalandsfoss is one of Iceland’s most spectacular waterfalls, which you can actually walk behind and come out at the other side. Make sure you don’t trip in the mud!
After a walk behind the waterfall you will head towards the black beach, that reach as far as the eye can see, where you will have some more fun with the super jeep.
On the way back to Reykjavik, you will make one last stop at the beautiful waterfall Skogafoss. While the driver inflates the huge tires of the jeep, you have the opportunity to take a close look at the waterfall, before heading back to Reykjavik after an eventful day on the south coast.
