Driving through Iceland’s longest river-valley, the glacial river Þjórsá with the notorious volcano Hekla looming above is a magical experience.
On this tour we follow Fossá, a spring-water river emerging from the Icelandic highlands. Pursuing off-road trails, our massive trucks take us to various locations.
The peaceful and unique Hjálparfoss is a photographer’s delight. The waterfall is split in two with a beautiful pond in front. Surrounded by marvelous rock formations, the area can be quite inspiring.
Higher up the river there are two neighboring waterfalls, Háifoss and Granni. Háifoss, with its 122 meter (400 feet) drop, is Iceland’s second highest waterfall. Standing above the huge gorge that the waterfalls have carved is simply breathtaking.
Although concentrating on these three waterfalls, this trip also gives passengers a chance to explore the contrast of Iceland’s diverse nature, the lush Þjórsárdalur Valley and the barren, rocky highlands above.
Departure from Flúðir, every day at 10:00.
