We meet in Reykjavik, hop up in the luxury jeep and then drive to the beautiful Iceland South Coast. On our journey, you will see the most impressive waterfalls in the world like Gljúfrabúi, and you will even have a chance to take a walk behind some, like Seljalandsfoss. After a few kilometres, there comes the mighty Skógafoss waterfall known for its double rainbow phenomena. Although the legend says that behind this cascade there is a treasure chest, it would be clever to let legends be legends, because Skógafoss is a very powerful waterfall, with a fall of 60 metres and admiring its beauty from the safe spot is surely wiser. There are 527 stairs along this gorgeous waterfall, and they are worth climbing, because watching the waterfall from its falling point is a unique experience, not to mention, the view is priceless. South Iceland is wonderful because every few kilometres there is something special to see. After Skógafoss, driving along the ocean on the right, with green meadows and hills filled with sheep and horses on the left, we will come to the magical place called Dyrhólaey. The sight there is magnificent, any side your turn you will have a grandiose view; to the south, there is the Atlantic Ocean, to the north the glaciers and mountains, to the west black sand beach and to the east black lava columns. In front of the peninsula, there is a gigantic black arch of lava standing in the sea, which gave the peninsula its name meaning “door hill island”. There is also a lighthouse which sits at the top of the formation facing the ocean. Not so far away from Dyrhólaey, a charming town of Vík is situated. After enjoying this fairy-tale town, famous for its red-roof white church situated on the hill above the town, and a mighty view on the roaring Atlantic and Reynisdrangar sea cliffs that are located on Reynisfjara beach which is voted as one of the top ten beautiful non-tropical beaches in the world, it is time to get back to Reykjavik. South Iceland will most definitely make a great impact on you, and you will surely come back soon to relive this beauty again.
If the sightseeing isn´t adventourus enough for you, you can add the following activities to your tour:
