Eyjafjallajökull & Þórsmörk
A day trip to the highlights of the Icelandic South Shore driving the Arctic Trucks.
We will take the main road east from Reykjavík through the mountains of Helliðsheiði plateau and drive along the south coast passing small Icelandic farms all the way to the foot of the world famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano. We stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall where the brave ones can take a walk behind the waterfall as it falls from the very high cliffs. After driving between two glaciers on the rutted tracks and crossing few unbridged glacier rivers we arrive at Þórsmörk valley at the foot of Mýrdalsjökull glacier and Katla volcano.
It is impossible to reach the valley on a regular vehicle, the guide teaches you how to cross rivers on the super jeep and why we need to deflate the tires on the way! In Þórsmörk valley we make stops at Gígjökull outlet glacier and Stakkholtsgjá canyon to explore it’s hidden waterfall! Optional hiking tours or more driving on the rough tracks. This tour offers waterfalls, rivers, rutted tracks, famous glaciers and volcanoes.. what more can you ask for in one day?
