The starting point is from Reykjavik, and then we will drive all the way up to the notorious Eyjafjallajökull volcano glacier. Where we are going to take the real snowmobile tour.The latest Eyjafjallajökull eruption was in 2010, and it had caused quite a disturbance, especially in air travel, but alsoelectrical storms, flooding, and around 800 local people were evacuated. Eyjafjallajökull consists of avolcano which is completely covered by an ice cap. The ice cap covers an area of about 100 squarekilometres and it has many outlet glaciers.The mountain itself stands 1,651 metres at its highest point. It has a crater 3–4 kilometres in diameter thatopens to the north. After meeting this wonderful natural beast on snowmobile, our next stop are the famous ice caves in the Mýrdalsjökull glacier. Mýrdalsjokull translates to valley glacier; and it is an ice cap in the south of Iceland. The forces of nature have made extraordinary frozen caves, mazes and tunnels due to the massive whirlpools and melting water that originates often on the glaciers surface, and then enters and runs through or under the glacier with violent force carving the caves and tunnels. The heat transfer from the water can cause sufficient melting to create an air-filled cavity, which are bigger in summer due to warmer temperatures. Exploring the ice caves gives you the real SF sensation because of its formation, structures and colours,definitely an exclusive and privileged experience, because the caves often and quickly change due toweather conditions and other natural forces. Our first day journey ends here as we are now heading to the resting point to spend the night with even greater admiration for the nature around us.
Today is the south coast day, the favorite area for the most people, we will hop up in the luxury jeep and start ourjourney. You will see the most impressive waterfalls in the world like Gljúfrabúi, and you will even have achance to take a walk behind some of them, like Seljalandsfoss. After a few kilometres, there comes themighty Skógafoss waterfall known for its double rainbow phenomena. Although the legend says that behindthis cascade there is a treasure chest, it would be clever to let legends be legends, because Skógafoss is avery powerful waterfall, with a fall of 60 metres and admiring its beauty from a safe spot is surely wiser.There are 527 stairs along this gorgeous waterfall, and they are worth climbing, because watching thewaterfall from its falling point is a unique experience, not to mention, the view is priceless. South Iceland iswonderful, because every few kilometres there is something special to see. After Skógafoss, driving alongthe ocean on the right, with meadows and hills filled with sheep and horses on the left, we will come to themagical place called Dyrhólaey. The sight there is magnificent, any side your turn you will have a grandioseview; to the south there is the Atlantic Ocean, to the north the glaciers and mountains, to the west blacksand beach and to the east black lava columns. In front of the peninsula, there is a gigantic black arch oflava standing in the sea, which gave the peninsula its name, meaning “door hill island”. There is also alighthouse which sits at the top of the formation facing the ocean. Not so far away from Dyrhólaey, acharming town of Vík is situated, and after exploring the beauty of Vík, we will be heading back to the city, and ending our exciting adventure.
