From Reykjavik we head east along the ring road to the south coast, passing over the mountain ranges of Hellisheidi, through farmlands and across glacial outwash plains offering scenery that is ever changing.
Once we reach the coastal road which runs along the base of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano, all of the fun starts and we make several stops with only short drives between.
Further along the coast we visit the Solheimajokull Glacier which is part of the Myrdalsjokull Ice-cap. Here we take a short walk of around 30 minutes from the car park to reach the edge of the ice and experience this natural wonder up close.
Heading a little farther east on to Iceland's most southerly point with it's rolling surf breaking on black sand beaches, dramatic coastal cliffs, spectacular rock formations. May to August these coastal cliffs are inhabited by puffin colonies.
The day also includes short photo stops depending on weather, road conditions and time constraints. These extra stops will be at the discretion of your guide on the day.
The driving distance of the day is around 350 kilometres and total driving time is around 4 hours, but this is divided into shorter journeys between the stops.
Lunch is not included but you will be able to buy something to eat at a cafe/restaurant during the day.
