The places we recommend you to visit on this tour:
We'll begin our journey by steering towards the stunning Gígjökull glacier, a stunning place that isn't included in any South Coast group tour itinerary.
Gígjökull is an impressive outlet glacier of the grand Eyjafjallajökull ice cap, is a testament to the dynamic and awe-inspiring landscapes of Iceland. Set amidst the rugged terrains of Þórsmörk valley, named after Thor, the revered Norse god of thunder, the journey to Gígjökull is a wonderful trip on itself!
Next, we'll make our way to Seljalandsfoss, a renowned waterfall celebrated for the natural cave that lies behind its gushing waters. In the summer months, you have the unique opportunity to walk behind its veil and witness the cascade from within!
Skógafoss: Another breathtaking waterfall, legend has it that behind it lays a treasure chest filled with gold. Venture close to its base to feel the spray or climb the adjacent stairs for a panoramic view from above. And for those seeking further enchantment, we can embark on a hike along the river to discover even more cascading wonders.
Dyrhólaey: Behold the grandeur of this majestic rock arch, where uninterrupted ocean views stretch to infinity and the powerful resonance of crashing waves fills the air. Come summer, the cliffs come alive with nesting puffins, offering a delightful spectacle that we can observe up close!
Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach: Stand in awe of its dramatic coastlines adorned with imposing sea stacks and intricate basalt columns, all set against the backdrop of the roaring Atlantic. Esteemed by National Geographic as one of the world's most spectacular beaches, it's a testament to nature's unparalleled artistry.
Village Vík: Step into the enchanting realm of Vík, Iceland's southernmost coastal village. Ascend to the hilltop church for a picture-perfect vista of the quaint village set against the vast ocean. Refresh yourself at a local eatery, savoring delicacies as you gaze upon the iconic sea stacks, before we journey back to Reykjavík.
Optional Hidden Gems and Activities:
Gljúfrabúi: A concealed gem, this waterfall remains hidden behind a cliff offering an intimate encounter with nature.
Kvernufoss: A serene yet often overlooked spot, where you can witness the majestic force of water crashing down surrounded by lush greenery.
On this trip, you have the chance to enroll in exhilarating activities like snowmobiling on the glacier, embarking on an ATV buggy journey, undertaking a guided glacier walk, kayaking on an icy glacier lagoon, horseback riding through black sand beaches, or exploring the depths of a lava cave. With such a diverse array of choices, there's bound to be an adventure tailored to your preferences.
