Following a morning pickup at your accommodation in Reykjavik, take a seat in your Jeep or minibus and spin out along the Hellisheidi mountain pass. Enjoy sweeping views over the geysers, lava fields and volcanos, and listen as your private driver and guide sheds light on the region’s geothermal activities.
First, traverse the lowlands to the Skogafoss and Séljalandsfoss waterfalls, and stand behind Séljalandsfoss’ cascading waters to feel the might of the falls up close. You’ll have enough time to explore the sites on foot, and admire the majesty of these impressive natural wonders.
Next, head onward past the Solheimajokull glacier to the high, rocky promontory of Dyrhólaey—where spectacular coastal scenery awaits. Here, watch the Atlantic waves washing over the black sands below and gaze across the Mýrdalur valley range.
Continue on to the shoreline at Reynisfjara—one of the finest black-sand beaches in Iceland—and stop for a coastal walk. With your private guide on hand to point out the basalt columns and sea stacks, gain insight into the region’s dramatic volcanic history.
When your time at Reynisfjara comes to an end, return to your Reykjavik hotel to conclude your tour.
