Private Day tour of South Iceland

Your journey begins driving east from Reykjavik and toward Eyjafjallajokull glacier.

There you stop at Seljarlandsfoss freefalling waterfall.  A short path leads behind the waterfall, where you can feel the spray and drizzle on your face and see it from an interesting perspective. Refreshed, you travel onwards to Skogafoss, a beautiful waterfall which flows down from a high cliff.

Near the waterfall is the Skogar folklore museum, where you can see old turf houses and tools and household objects made in the late 18th and early 19th century. Heading towards the ocean, you stop at a black sand beach to enjoy the view of Reynisdrangar, strange basalt sea stacks that stand out from the ocean.   Close by is Dyrholaey, a small peninsula which forms an arch into the sea.  In the summer many puffins make their nesting at Dyrholaey.  On a clear day you have a beautiful view of Myrdalsjokull glacier.

Please note that Dyrholaey is closed from May 1st until June 25th to preserve birdlife.

On the way back we can visit the town of Hveragerdi.  The town is built on a geothermal hot spot and many inhabitants make their living from greenhouse cultivation. Back in Reykjavik your driver guide drops you off at your hotel or a restaurant of your choice.
