As we head out of Reykjavík to the south shore enjoy seeing the settlements spaced out along the ring road and the large sheep, dairy and horse farms along the way. Keep your eyes open for the beautiful Eyjafjallajökull glacier and the stunning Seljalandsfoss, which can be spied in the distance as we approach through the low lands. Also view the towering volcanic islands of the Westman Islands just off the south coast.
After a stop at the Seljalandsfoss waterfall, we ll head on eastward to the larger neighbouring glacier Mýrdalsjökull where we will venture up a steep mountain road to the end of the road near the glaciers edge. Here you will have an opportunity to take an optional snowmobile ride on the glacier (cost not included). This is Icelands fourth largest glacier and home of the active volcano Katla. Some say this sub-glacier caldera is due to erupt very soon.
We will also visit the Skógar school settlement, nestled under a mountain ridge topped by the glacier, and walk up close to the powerful Skógafoss waterfall, which is often circled by beautiful rainbows on sunny days. As we head back west toward the capital, we zoom along off-road on the lava beaches looking for seals and treasures. We end our day back in Reykjavík with rich memories of the beautiful south shore of Iceland.
