Take a whole day private tour underneath the South Coast Volcanoes in our luxury Landcover Discovery. Knowledgeable, local guides. Personal service, good old fashioned Icelandic hospitality.

Enjoy a first class view of Hekla, one of Iceland’s most famous volcanoes, which was in the Middle Ages known as “The Gateway To Hell”. Near you will meet Eyjafjallajokull, the one with both the difficult name and the reputation of closing down international air routes.

We will stop and take moderate hikes to some secret places. Hear funny and informative stories about the overdue volcanoes and maybe have some close encounters with trolls and hidden people.

The South Coast Volcanoes are Iceland’s most active and powerful ones.

We start the tour by driving over  Hengill, one of Reykjavik’s volcanoes over to the South coast. From the top at the other side you begin to see the South Coast volcanoes emerging in the distance.

For a long time Hekla has erupted every 10 years but now she has been quiet for 17 years. This means the next one can happen any day. Driving through the south you will see the volcanoes on your left hand and the Atlantic on your 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 can make a stop at the Volcano Center in Hvolsvöllur. An 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 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 we can be flexible. If you have special wishes, please tell us and if possible we will try to make it happen.
