We depart from Reykjavik in the morning, pass Selfoss, the biggest town of South Iceland, and drive inland toward the picturesque Thjorsardalur valley, a green oasis located in the vicinity of Hekla volcano; our first stop is at Hjalparfoss, a very unusual waterfall.

From there, it’s not a long drive to the next attraction: the Viking farmhouse of Stöng. We visit both the original place’s excavated ruins and the historically accurate reconstruction of the Viking longhouse (Þjóðveldisbærinn), where we get a taste of everyday life during the Norsemen Era.

We continue our tour to the beautiful Gjain ravine: an enchanting gorge with lush vegetation, numerous clear water creeks, interesting volcanic formations and a cute little waterfall. Sometime, in August, Porcini mushrooms (Boletus edulis) of giant size can be found in the area.

After pick-nick and a nice walk through the ravine, we head toward Háifoss: an impressive 122 meters high waterfall, said to be the second tallest in Iceland.

The tour itinerary is flexible and it can be altered due to adverse weather conditions…better to be safe than sorry!!
