This is probably one of the best ways to rock up your morning, we will have some off-roading action getting to Thorsmork Valley, a beautiful woodland surrounded by rugged mountains and glacial rivers. This valley is only accessible year-round on 4×4 and scheduled buses during the summer months. So get your seatbelt fastened and enjoy some splashing through glacial rivers!
Our super jeep will then take us to Gigjokull glacier, which is a calf glacier of the notorious Eyjafjallajokull (Eyjafjallajökull), the glacier-covered volcano which erupted in 2010. During the eruption millions of litres of melted ice from Gigjokull (Gígjökull) bursted down the mountainside causing massive destructive floods on its way to the Atlantic. We then hop back onto Highway 1 to continue our quest of spectacular waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss (Skógafoss). Seljalandsfoss is just over 60m surrounded by beautiful cliffs and slopes. There is a footpath behind the waterfall where depending on road conditions we can actually take a walk behind the waterfall for a different view. Skogafoss is one of the biggest waterfalls in Iceland. Also measures around 60m in drop, it boasts a width of 25m. On sunny days it’s not unusual to to see double rainbow through the spray created by the waterfall.We continue towards the east on the south coast to our last stop Reynisfjara. Here we will find not only black beach, but more notably the basalt rock columns and cave, and sea stack.
