South coast with 9 holes of Golf

We depart from Reykjavík driving east up onto the Mid Atlantic Ridge, through rugged

lava fields, past a geothermal power plant giving the area a mystic atmosphere filled

with the 'sweet' smell of sulphur. We continue over a mountain pass to the lowland South

Iceland area. We pass the steaming town of Hveragerdi (Hot spring garden) with its many

greenhouses as the tour continues through the largest agricultural area of Iceland.

Approaching the Eyjafjoll (Island mountains) we have views to the Westman Islands and

the infamous Eyjafjallajokull volcano that erupted in 2010. The magnificent 60 m (200 ft)

high waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss cascade down the sides of Eyjafjoll and

offer unique opportunities for getting up close and personal.

Waterfall Seljalandsfoss

Seljalandsfoss is one of few waterfalls that is actually possible to walk behind and view

from the inside out. Falling in a majestic arch from the ancient sea cliffs it crashes down

with intense power into a deep pool literally at our feet.

Waterfall Skogafoss

Continuing east we drive along the picturesque cliffs of Eyjafjoll to the Skogarfoss

waterfall. Now we have to opportunity to take a hike to the top of the waterfall to view

its majestic power from above. The 25 m (80 ft) wide waterfall is one of the largest in

Iceland and due to the amount of spray a rainbow can often be observed during sunny

days. On your way to the golf course we will make a lunch stop at one the numerus

resturants in the aeria.

The Black Beach Reynisfjara

Our next destination is the dramatic black sand beach Reynisfjara. Powerful waves have

hammered the shore and basalt cliffs giving shape to some of the most famous natural

wonders of the area. Cliffs with caves and the Reynisdrangar sea stacks are just off the

shore. The long and stark black sand beach reachs to the 120 m (400 ft) high Dyraholaey

promontory, the southernmost tip of Iceland. The cliffs in the area are home to a rich

variety of birdlife, among other species you might see fulmar, guillemot, razorbill, gannet
