South Coast Tour Iceland | Private Super Jeep Tour

The splendor and diversity of the landscapes in the south coast is simply amazing!

You can enjoy this exclusive itinerary where we’ll show you waterfalls, volcanoes, glaciers up close and personal, and the black-sand beach.

We head off to the waterfall Seljalandsfoss where you can walk behind the 60 meter high fall. For our next activity we use the advantage of our sensational 4×4 super jeep and go offroading toward Thorsmork Valley. We’ll have to cross some 20 rivers and streams in order to reach our next stop, Glacier Gígjökull which is the largest outlet of the glacier and volcano Eyjafjallajökull, also known as E15.

After the refreshing short walk around the glacier area we get back to the Ring Road and further enjoy the views by the coast. We take a lunch stop at one of the restaurants we recommend by the the South Coast, depending on your budget and food requirements. Next we go to enjoy the beauty of Skógafoss waterfall.

We’ll visit the promontory of Dyrhólaey with stunning views and a lighthouse. Finally, we head off to enjoy the sea stacks of Reynisdrangar with the basalt rock formations at the black-sand beach, which are located near Vík í Mýrdal.

REVIEW: “South Coast Tour... Fabulous!”

“[…] it is absolutely worth spending the extra money and taking a private tour. Orri was able to take us off roading to some magnificent areas. Truly breathtaking scenery. We were able to stop where and whenever we wanted to take pictures. Orri was a pleasure to talk to and shared his love and knowledge of his beautiful country.” …

REVIEW: “South Coast Tour”

“[…] Because our tour was just two of us, we were free to tailor the tour to our interests and even take some “adventurous” routes to a lighthouse and to a viewpoint high above Reykjavik to see the city at night. Iceland is an special place and being able to be at the places you use for your desktop background was something I’ll never forget. Discover Iceland was top-notch in making your trip as special as the landscape itself.”…

Snæfellsnes Peninsula – Private Day Tour

Would you like to enjoy the breathtaking volcanoes, glaciers and unspoiled nature of Thorsmork, the hiker’s paradise?

Visit Snæfellsnes with one of our fun local guides

and discover the picturesque landscapes around the volcano Snæfellsjökull. This area is now a National Park, but it is the setting of the Jules Verne novel “Journey to the Center of the Earth”.

There are weird basalt rock formations along the trail between Arnarstapi and Hellnar. Blowholes, birds and sheer cliffs of lava. One of the nicest formations is an arch or gateway located at the trail’s head name Gatklettur.

Shaped by the ocean, the glacier, and centuries of volcanic activity with lava fields, fjords, waterfalls and cute fishing villages, the Snæfellsnes Peninsula is certainly ‘Iceland in Miniature’. You can click on the map icons for pictures and details on the different locations we will visit.

We will always be ready for the northern lights if they show up. The itinerary and group accommodations lend well for a corporate trip or incentive travel, for example, though other groups are welcome too!

Landmannalaugar and Hekla | Super Jeep Tour

Would you like to enjoy the breathtaking volcanoes, glaciers and unspoiled nature of Thorsmork, the hiker’s paradise?

Landmannalaugar is a surreal location that you will not forget as you live. This rugged area is the natural habitat of the super jeeps, truly a unique 4×4 off-road destination. Being in a small group, the guide will be able to comply with your special wishes!

Note: pick up from another location in South Iceland is available,
such as Hotel Rangá, or hotels in Hella, or Selfoss.

Let’s enjoy the diversity of this off-road destination, with its volcanoes, lava fields, and geothermal pool. One of our unique stops is the waterfall Þjófafoss with its interesting viking history (click on the map’s icons for further information). We drive through the great valley of Dómadalur and from there we drive near the infamous volcano Hekla and visit volcano Krakatindur. When we have enjoyed the spectacular scenery from these volcanoes we head off to Landmannalaugar where you can jump into the natural geothermal pool or enjoy some easy hiking in the mountains.

On the way back through a different route we’ll see a magnificent crater lake called Ljótipollur. We also drive through the valley Þjórsárdalur which is packed with lakes, waterfalls and woodland. We will stop at Hjálparfoss Falls and then we drive back to Reykjavik.

There’s also the small lava Cave Grjótagjá, which contains a pool of warm spring water. We then visit the largest hot spring area in Iceland, the Námafjall Hverir mud pots and fumaroles. And among the many highlights there’s the huge volcano Crater Víti, which means “hell” and is located by the Krafla Power Station. There are other stops as well (see the google map below).

It’s possible to do this day tour from the AEY Airport in Akureyri. Also, we have available pick up locations between Siglufjörður, to anywhere in Akureyri. Pick-up & drop-off locations may be different, and there’s no extra cost for this. This is very practical for visitors who won’t be having a car.

REVIEW: “The Fantasy Realm Is Real: this is your ticket in””

If you are the kind of traveler who loves unspoiled, natural beauty, then this is the tour company for you. The tours are small and intimate […] The staff of Discover Iceland are communicative and helpful.

REVIEW: “Creative and Fun Tour Guides”

We went for a 7 day private tour of Iceland in late December thinking that time of year would give us the best chance to see the Northern Lights and the incredible Ice Caves we’d seen in various photos. We scoured Trip Advisor for the best tour guides and landed on Discover Iceland. Obviously, you’re always at the mercy of the weather that time of year, particularly in Iceland.
