The eruption in Eyjafjallajokull 2010

Why do this?

Iceland is a volcanic island. The black sand beaches that we have are really spectacular to see. It’s all volcanic ash, from volcanic eruptions. Millions of tons of sand are carried every day down the river beds into the beaches and out to sea. Iceland’s coastline is expanding to the south and the sea does it’s best to eat it away but still it grows. You must see this with your own eyes! Where else in the world can you get so close to glaciers without having to go really really high up?

The tour:

In order to show you the best of the south shore, we have to start at Urridafoss.  This waterfall is considered to be one of the most voluminous waterfall in Iceland.  From there we go to the Lava Centre where you will enjoy a movie about the volcanoes in Iceland and an interactive exhibition. From there we head to Seljalandsfoss at the backdrop of Eyjafjallajokull glacier and take a look at Gljufrabui – its next door neighbour.  Next up is the magnificent Skogafoss.  After that, the amazing black beach at Reynisfjara, where we break for lunch. Afther the black sand beach, we head through the small village of Vik which is the most southern populated town in Iceland and towards the beautiful Fjadrargljufur canyon. Of course we do try to stop as much as we can for you on the way, depending on our time.
