Pick up car and The Greenhouse Town
Get ready for an exciting day of sightseeing. In the morning you will be picked up and taken to the car rental office where you will receive your car for the day.
Start driving to the outskirts of Reykjavik towards Iceland┤s scenic South Coast. First up is a visit to the greenhouse community at Hverageri town.
Steam from natural vents rises into the air around this small charming town but this geothermal energy is used to heat up greenhouses in town.
Continue to Selfoss where you can take a stroll or visit a local cafe or bakery.
Waterfalls and Volcanoes
From Selfoss continue to the South coast passing two small towns, Hella and Hvolsvollur. Make a pit stop by the beautiful waterfall Seljalandfoss and if you feel like it you can walk behind it and feel the light vatery mist. From Seljaladsfoss waterfall continue to the majestic Skogafoss waterfall. From Skogar lies a popular hiking trail which leads up to the site of a volcanic eruption in 2010 where the earth is still warm.
A Nature Reserve, Black Beaches and Rock Formations
Continue to Dyrholaey Nature Reserve, the southernmost part of Iceland. Here thousands of birds nest over the summer time and an absolute paradise for the birdwatcher. A short boat tour in the vicinity of the reserve is available during summer. After a visit to the Nature reserve visit the black beach Reynisfjara where strangely formed basalt columns, cliffs and caves are to be found. Visit the Small town VÝk which is a turnaround point.
