Amazing Super Jeep tour into the Majestic Mountains. See the breathtaking Fjadrargljufur Canyon and the beautiful Waterfall Fagrifoss. We will also explore the Craters of Landbrotsholar, a lesser known part of Iceland’s south.
This 3 hours Super Jeep tour is the perfect choice for those who want to connect to the nature away from the tourist crowds but do not have the time to take the full day tour. While on the tour your guide will give you informative commentary about the history and geology of the area.
The tour begins in Kirkjubaejarklaustur, a southern town often nicknamed Klaustur by locals. Many visitors to Iceland will find themselves in this historic location as they travel the South Coast; it is between the village of Vík Í Mýdral and the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, and is steeped in religious heritage.
Fagrifoss and Fjadrargljufur Canyon
Your guide will pick you up his Super Jeep, and whisk you into a remote region that few get the chance to access; the road goes over bumpy trails and across deep rivers, in stunning landscape making for an exciting journey.
Your first destination is the little-known Fagrifoss waterfall, nestled deep in the mountains. You will stop to admire its scale and picturesque beauty, as well as its dramatic, verdant surroundings. The name of the waterfall means literally beautiful Fall. We, the locals think that this waterfall is the most beautiful in Iceland and we are confident that you will too.
Your guide will then escort you above Fjadrargljufur Canyon. There is a marked trail downhill by the edge of the canyon and during a roughly thirty-five-minute hike you will marvel over its sheer walls and the azure waters running below. Fjadrargljufur is often referred to as the most beautiful one in the world. You need not repeat your trail when you come to the canyon end, as your Super Jeep will be waiting for you at its base.
Unique Craters of Landbrotsholar
You will then continue your tour, admiring the marvelous surrounding nature on the cusp of the Southern Highlands, to Landbrotsholar. This is a huge area with thousands of specially formed volcanic craters called pseudo-craters, and such features are incredibly rare around the world; they are much more common, unusually, on the planet Mars and in Iceland. You will have the chance to enter one of the craters and to explore the lava, as your guide tells you all about their unique geological history.
Finally, you will return to the super jeep and be whisked back to Kirkjubaeklaustur.
