Breakfast at the hotel. Meet the group and your driver-guide who will brief you on today's trip. For the coming three days, you will travel by super jeep. A super jeep is originally a standard truck/SUV or van that is modified according to strict regulations in Iceland. It is basically an especially equipped 4x4 vehicle with very large tires that is designed appositely to face Icelandic demanding terrains and unpredictable weather both in winter and summer.
You start by driving through Reykjavík town centre to give you an introduction to the country and its people. Leaving the city, it won’t take long to reach a remote area, and the first stop is to try some simple caving in an ancient lava tube. From there, you will visit the farm Gaulverjabaer to experience how people live in Iceland’s countryside.
Once you reach Eyjafjallajokull, the volcano that caused air chaos in 2010, you head north for a 4x4 adventure in the Thorsmork Nature Reserve and enjoy a picnic lunch featuring local specialities. Afterwards, you will visit Gljufrabui, a waterfall that is only accessible to small groups, before continuing to Skogarfoss waterfall where you take a quick stop to visit a traditional turf house. Back aboard your 4x4 jeeps you will drive along the south coast’s famous black sand beaches. You will spend the evening at the Hrifunes Guesthouse, a cozy home in the countryside, far away from any light pollution, giving you a good chance of glimpsing the elusive Northern Lights.
