What to expect?

Under the volcano (UTV) One of Iceland’s most powerful volcanoes, Katla, lies dormant beneath the Mýrdalsjökull glacier. This tour takes you right to the foot of the glacier, a place virtually untouched by man, surrounded by magnificent landscapes and awe-inspiring colours. We visit Reynisdrangar and the black beach, two of Iceland’s most-photographed and picturesque sites, before heading into the Mýrdalssandur desert, ending at a stunning waterfall that emerges from the ice at the foot of the glacier. We also visit a mountain hut that is reputed to be haunted, and the Hjörleifshöfði plateau mountain, an area immortalized in countless films, TV ads and music videos.

What is included?

Local guide, super jeep, 30 minutes hike at Katlaglacier.

What do I need to bring?

Bring warm clothing, rain gear and good shoes.
