South Iceland is a lowland region with a diverse landscape of lush farmland, glaciers, dramatic sandy coastline and striking waterfalls. It is also an area of historical significance. Your guide will take you on a journey through locations where important historical and cultural events took place, including probably Iceland\s greatest medieaval story Njall\s Saga. The trip continues onto Myrdalsjokull
where you can walk on the glacier and admire the views.
Visit beautiful Seljalandsfoss
and stand behind this plummeting waterfall; see mighty Skogafoss
; walk on black sand beaches pounded by the Atlantic surf and see the bird cliffs that surround the small coastal town of Vik
, which are teeming with life in spring and summer. On the way home, stop at the \greenhouse\ town of Hveragerdi
, so called because the abundant geothermal activity in the area has meant the locals grow all kinds of plants and produce in row upon row of greenhouses.
The sights on this south shore (Iceland) tour are \classic\ and exploring them by superjeep provides the ultimate way to travel.
