Tour description provided by Viator

Come visit the south coast and the vicinity of the unpronounceable Eyjafjallajökull volcano that erupted so memorably in 2010 and stopped many airports in Europe during that time. Why not do it in a Super Jeep to add on to the fun. The Super Jeeps are specially modified here in Iceland to get you to remote areas regular cars can't go. Nowhere else in the world you have the opportunity to get in one of those Jeeps and traverse through rough terrain and splashing in glacial rivers. Don´t let it slip you by!!!
This is the ideal tour for the nature lover who want to glare at the contrasts between white glacial vistas and black sandy beaches.We will start the day by picking you up at your accommodation in Reykjavik, in our modified super jeep. First we drive towards Gígjökull glacier tongue, which stretches down from the famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano, which erupted in 2010. During the enormous eruption millions of liters of melted ice from Eyjafjallajökull came bursting down the mountainside causing massive floods changing the scenery for years to come.Before we get to Gígjökull, we will show you why we have such big tires and splash through several fresh water streams and glacier rivers!Seljalandsfoss is one of Iceland’s most spectacular waterfalls, which you can actually walk behind and come out at the other side. After a walk behind the waterfall we will head towards the black sandy beaches, that reach as far as the eye can see, where we will have some more fun with the super jeep.On the way back we make our last stop for the day; the beautiful waterfall Skógarfoss. While the driver inflates the huge tires of the jeep, you have the opportunity to take a close look at the waterfall, before we head back to Reykjavík after an eventful day on the south shore.
