We offer numerous options of day trips to the highlands of the south coast of Iceland. Spending most of our time in Fjallabak reserve it is a great example of what Icelandic nature has to offer. Some of the most amazing waterfalls on the island will be visited. River crossings are necessary. Glaciers can be seen up close or from afar and the black deserts give us that moonlike landscape, surrounded with mountains with all the colours of the rainbow along with the endless lava fields from past eruptions. Fjallabak reserve is a volcanic wonderland that circles one of our most notorious volcanos, Mt. Hekla. Waiting for it to erupt, we get to see nature like no other and that, all in one day.
All our day trips are made with the unspoiled nature in mind. The tours are a combination of driving and hiking with occasional photo stops.
