Trip difficulty 2 out of 5 possible. Rated: Easy


Starting with a pick up from Reykjavík in on of our specially modified super trucks we will drive up to the Hellisheiði Mountain where we will follow the 1000 rivers mountain road. We will cross the river in beautiful surroundings many times before descending down to the grassy low lands on Iceland’s south coast. Our next stop is the Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, which we can walk behind the veil of water and then we will visit the Sólheimajökull Glacier.

We will put on crampons (spikes for the soles of our shoes) and other specialized glacier gear and explore the glacier on foot with an expert glacier guide to keep you safe. The Sólheimajökull is a magnificent place; the ancient ice floe is crevassed riddled, with huge ice ridges and spiraling sinkholes everywhere. In the ice, ashes from past volcanic eruptions are hidden and just a few kilometers to the west, resting on top of the mountains, the infamous Eyjafjallajökull volcano can be glimpsed on clear days.

You can then eat your lunch out in nature and then follow the glacier river from Sólheimajökull down to the black sand beaches. There we will power our way through the sand with the relentless surf of the North Atlantic Ocean on our left side and the Mýrdalsjökull & Eyjafjallajökull glaciers on our right side. We will enter the road again at the famous Skógar waterfall and walk up to the 60 meter high monster to view it up close. After all these adventures we will cruise back to Reykjavík and arrive around 18:00 in the evening.

*Where, when and how much we will be able to go off-road depends entirely on weather and conditions, in other words it depends on the Iceland nature!

Our super jeeps seat 5 - 12 persons so our Safaris are always a small group experience!

Would you like to super size your South Coast super jeep tour and visit Þórsmörk or Landmannalaugar, stay over night and experience more of the Icelandic Nature?
