Get up close and personal with the famous glacier covered volcano with the difficult name, Eyjafjallajokull (Eyjafjallajökull) that halted almost all aviation during the summer of 2010.
We start with some serious super jeep action splashing through glacial rivers and river beds on our way to Gigjokull glacier (Gígjökull), which flows from Eyjafjallajokull glacier. At the glacier we get the opportunity to touch the ancient ice and admire the myriad of blue tones reflecting through the ice – for sure an unique experience.
Leaving the glacier we are ready for one of our hidden secrets, Stakkholtsgja or Nauthusagil gorges that offer some spectacular adventure landscape ending in a waterfall deep within them. For sure this hike will be one of the highlights of the tour.
Seljalandsfoss waterfall is one of the must sees in Iceland and being in the Eyjafjallajokull region we will get the opportunity to hike behind the 60 meter high cascade – if we are lucky we might discover the mythical pot of gold said to be hidden there.
Glacial rivers & Lava fields
After lunch we will get the opportunity to drive through areas covered in lava and ash from the volcanic eruption, cross glacial rivers and test the jeeps real potential – all to get the best view of the eruption site from 2010.
Water and waves
Before we head back to Reykjavik we drive along the black sand beaches of the Atlantic Ocean and make our last stop at the impressive Skogafoss waterfall.
Remember to bring warm clothes, sturdy shoes, your camera and some snacks for the trip.
