DAY 2
Superjeep Eyjafjallajökull Volcano Tour OR Þórsmörk Adventure,

DAY 2
Superjeep Eyjafjallajökull Volcano Tour OR Þórsmörk Adventure,

Breakfast will be available at your cabin before your superjeep off-road adventure – all you have to do is to choose which of the two options below you prefer!

We have had excellent feedback on how much clients enjoy this personalised & relaxed guided day. You will be in a Super jeep of up to 8 people, though normally it is 4 and is in sharp contrast to the coach tours offered by other companies, which also cannot venture to many of the places that you will be taken to. This is serious off roading !

EITHER
Eyjafjallajökull’s volcano Tour

This tour will take you as close as is possible to the new large crater in Eyjafjallajökull volcano from the 2010 eruption and to places where no hire car can go. We drive up the slopes of the glacier in a highly equipped Super-Jeep and on our way take in the astonishing view over the whole South coast of Iceland with it’s glaciers, and back across the Atlantic including the Westman-Islands. This tour gives you the perfect glacier experience; an exciting Super Jeep drive in the snow, walk on the glacier and the magnificent view over the south. This is real adventure.

OR
Porsmork valley Tour

Your guide will take you up between the three glaciers; Myrdalsjokull, Eyjafjallojokull and Tindfjallojokull. In your specially adapted SuperJeeps you will have the thrilling drive of fjording glacial rivers and driving across the flood plain to see the lasting effects and landscape changes following Eyjafjallajökull’s 2010 eruption.

You will be surrounded by an imposing mountain ridge and see spectacular landscapes. Stop at the stunning Seljalandsfoss waterfall , which you can walk behind and be mesmerised looking back through the falling water. If you wanted to see the “Raw Iceland” this is hard to beat!

We work only with local guides who have lived their whole life in this area, are very experienced & belong to the Mountain Rescue Team. They all have fascinating stories to tell of their experiences during the 2010 volcanic eruption!

Tonight you will cook for yourself. You will pre-choose your meal before you go so that your ingredients and recipe are waiting for you at the cabin. Sit outside and watch the sun setting in the middle of the night – a truly strange feeling!

Saeli Icelandic Cabin

This small cosy log cabin is well located with mountain views to the north, and the famed Eyjafjallajökull Volcano that erupted in 2010, and is in a great place to see the Northern lights.

It is perfect for a family or two couples with a separate living/eating area and two main bedrooms and an attic bedroom which kids will love. There are two separate bathrooms, one with a shower and one with a bath.

This has been refurbished very recently and is a wonderful place to relax and look out for the Northern Lights after the excitement of the day adventure Superjeep tours. A brand new hot tub has just been added outside which comfortably fits 6 people.

There is wifi and mobile signal, TV with very limited channels (probably in Icelandic). The beds are set up as a double in one room, a double with a combined single bunk bed above and then the attic has a mattress on the floor. We would therefore suggest it is perfect for 4 adults and 2 children.

Reviews & Feedback

Testimonials

What a beautiful country. Huge gorgeous mountains all around us with wonderful views. We loved the 24 hr sun as it meant we got so much more done than we had imagined – but came home pretty exhausted! The SuperJeep Tour in Porsmork was the best of fun. Thankyou for a great trip.

We had to write to tell you about our wonderful stay in Iceland. The cabin was in a great spot with super views and we really enjoyed having the place to ourselves every night to just chill. The restaurant just down the road at Anna was excellent for dinner. We really enjoyed the black beaches at Vik with puffins flying over us and the Basalt cave.
