Southern Iceland’s many natural highlights can be difficult to tick off, especially for visitors on limited time. Make the most of your visit on a day tour from Gljúfrabúi, and travel by Super Jeep for quick and easy access to landmarks including the Eyjafjallajökull glacier, Seljalandsfoss waterfall, and Thorsmork valley. Along the way, stop for lunch, short hikes, and photo opportunities, and benefit from insights provided by your local guide.
Landmannalaugar is one of a kind and no surprise it is one of the most popular natural attraction in Iceland. The geological formations with their stunning colors and geothermal heat are super motives for the eye or camera. Your guide has a Ph.D. in botany and has a deep understanding of the environmental issues dealt with in Iceland. During the drive, the elevation increases and you can definitely sense a change. The vegetation changes, sometimes the weather changes and so does the scenery of course. We drive very close to the majestic Hekla volcano which has erupted five times since 1947 and is due to erupt again any day. We then follow the narrow roads into the mountains, cross a few rivers and are soon in Landmannalaugar. And on the way we can - of course - stop as often as you like for photos. Landmannalaugar from Hella - two perfect locations!
