South Coast Volcanoes - private tour
Volcanoes of the South of Iceland are the most active and powerful ones. In this tour we drive over Mt. Hengill, one of Reykjavik’s volcanoes over to the South coast. On the way down at the other side we begin to see the South Coast volcanoes emerging in the distance.
Hekla is probably Iceland's most active volcano, having erupted every 10 years for a long time. Now she has been quiet for 17 years so the next one can happen any day. Driving through the south we see the volcanoes on our left hand and the Atlantic black sand beach on our right.
Eyjafjallajökull is one of our destinations but on our way to there we pass some stunning waterfalls like Seljalandsfoss and Skógarfoss. On the way to there we make a stop at the Volcano Center in Hvolsvöllur. It is a newly opened interactive volcano museum that brings the volcanoes to live.
The black sand beach Reynisfjara is our last stop before turning back. It is among the most stunning and most photographed places in Iceland. But be careful, every 10 minutes or so it sends us super waves that sometimes washes people out to the Atlantic. We will look after you, so don’t be discouraged.
In a private tour like this, we can also be flexible. We know about beautiful hidden places that are not famous tourist attractions. We only like to show them to small groups in personal tour. Adding a snowmobile experience or a glacier hike is also possible.
