South Shore & Eyjafjallajokull Super-Jeep Tour
In the 2010 Eyjafjallajokull volcano eruption changed the surrounding landscape forever. On this private super-jeep tour we go on both sides of the volcano, exploring the effects the eruption had on the farms, landscape and especially the glacier itself. It‘s fund to cross all the rivers in the Super Jeep and getting very close to the glacier and to see the famous Eyjafjallajokull from different perspectives.
Itinerary for the South Shore & Eyjafjallajokull
Traveling east out of Reykjavik along the south coast we get to the base of Eyjafjallajokull, the famous volcano that stopped all the air traffic in 2010. We start by driving to the north side of the volcano, towards Thorsmork, crossing several unbridged rivers, which is a lot of action and fun, to reach Gigjokull glacier tongue where melted ice flowed down from the eruption. This is as close as one can get to the volcano and offers a fantastic view of the ice fall which crumbles down from the top crater. Nowhere is it more evident that the glaciers are shrinking and changes in the landscape since the eruption are very dramatic.
Our next stop is Seljalandsfoss, a free falling waterfall, where we take a short path that leads behind the waterfall and you can feel the spray and drizzle on your face. From Seljalandsfoss we drive to the south side of Eyjafjallajokull, to another waterfall, Skogafoss. If lucky with the weather we get an excellent view of the summit of the glacier and volcano and we see the farmlands that were most affected by the eruption. South Skogafoss waterfall we can access the black sand beach.
