Best of South Iceland

3 day experience

This is the place where magic happens.

 

After breakfast we will jump into our 4x4 vehicle to explore these old glacier valleys that have been carved out by glaciers for years and years.

As we splash through unbridged streams and rivers you can enjoy the magical scenery and see the effects from the eruption in 2010, from the mighty Eyjafjallajökull.

In Þórsmörk there are numerous hikes to explore and we will choose one of them that will fit the group, either to a top of one of many viewpoints or into glacier carved gullies that will be on our way. There is a reason why Þórsmörk is called hiking paradise.

After our hike we will have a BBQ in this charming area.

Day 1, Þórsmörk

The Westman Islands are one of the best-kept secrets in Iceland and you haven't fully seen Iceland until you visit them. 

The islands are one of the wonders of nature, consisting of mountains, sea cliffs, volcanoes, seabirds, and locals.

We will be arriving on the island in the morning. We start by watching one of the islands´ most popular sport called “spranga”.  There we will see one of the locals rope-swing back and forth on the high cliffs of the Westman Islands. Lunch is close by so we will walk to our restaurant for lunch. We will then do a hike on one of the mountaintops with a spectacular view over the whole islands. This activity is perfect for nature and bird lovers. Iceland is home to one of the world's largest colonies of puffins. We hope to get a glimpse of this colorful little bird. After the activity, we will head to one of the fine museums the island has to offer. 

Day 2, Vestmannaeyjar

We will start the day by driving towards Landmannalaugar area that is known for its colourful rhyolite mountain ridges and warm river. Our highlights today will be Þjófafoss waterfall. It is one of several waterfalls in the south of Iceland situated in the lava fields north of Hekla Volcano. Ljótipollur or 'Ugly Puddle', this crater is nothing else than beautiful, with its red high edges on its sides and deep trout-filled lake at its bottom. In the afternoon we will go for a hike in Landmannalaugar area, there we will put our hiking boots on and do a short hike that is suitable for everyone in this phenomenal hiking paradise. After our exploring we pick up our towels and swimsuits and head to the hot spring and dip into a warm river. From here our road leads to a breathtaking place called Gjáin. This beautiful fairyland opens up with waterfalls, columnar basalt and such lush vegetation.
