After leaving Reykjavik, we head straight for the impressive Seljalandsfoss waterfalls, which we are able to walk behind for the ultimate view, if conditions permit. Next is the powerful Skógafoss waterfall, which is a sight that you will not soon forget!
From here we will drive to Reynisfjara , where you will be astounded by the amazing black sand and basalt columns. It is this incredible location where we will stop for lunch at the Black Beach Restaurant. After lunch we will continue east to explore Fjaðrárgljúfur*, where you can see the impressive forces of nature that have eroded this spectacular gorge. Further east, we will drive past the mighty Vatnajökull icecap, where we will be dwarfed by Iceland’s highest mountains.
We spend the night at the new and incredibly comfortable Lilja Guesthouse, resting up for another action packed day. Recently completed, rooms are finished with modern fittings and private bathrooms. Dinner from the kitchen at Lilja Guesthouse is always delicious, with the chefs taking advantage of the fresh, local Icelandic produce. With favorable conditions in winter, we will hunt for the magical northern lights.
In December and January when Lilja Guest-house is closed, we will be staying at which is also perfectly located, and has wonderfully comfortable rooms and delicious local food at their restaurant.
