After picking you up from your accommodation we drive to the geothermal powered town of Hveragerði and visit their small geothermal hot springs park (entry included) where you'll get a taste of just how important geothermal energy is to Icelanders. A natural clay foot bath can be enjoyed in the park and afterwards you can soak your feet in one of the hot springs. You'll see where the locals bake the famous their black bread using the geothermal ground as an oven.
From the geopark we'll carry on our journey taking past many of the South's farms and perhaps call in on one of the farmers' to get close to the unique Icelandic horse. We drive on past the beautiful black beaches from where you can see the Westman Islands, Iceland's southernmost point. Next up we'll visit the amazing Skógarfoss waterfall followed by lunch at Vík village.
On our way back to Reykjavik we'll stop at Reynisfjara and Dyrhólaey, go down to the stunning beach and observe the impressive Dyrhólaey cape where parts of the film Noah, starring Russell Crowe and Emma Watson was filmed.
Next up is a short stop at the edge of the Sólheimajökull glacier and walk behind one of Iceland's most beautiful waterfall, Seljalandsfoss.
