Trip Difficulty: ⅕ Easy
Do you love nature, the outdoors and getting to places most people just wouldn’t go? Are you looking for a tour that will take you to one of Iceland’s unique natural phenomenon, the black beaches. Formed from black basalt rocks, the black sand creates a stark contrast against the pure white background of the towering glaciers. This vivid imagery gives this tour its wow factor and most people on this tour are awestruck by it. This super jeep safari Iceland tour is simply amazing!
Riding in the modified super jeep is in itself an experience and the tour begins with an early pick up from your accommodation in Reykjavik. The first destination on the tour is the Gígjökull glacier tongue which has formed over thousands of years.
Stretching from the recently active and world famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano, the Gígjökull glacier tongue has seen some changes since the 2010 eruption. Along the way, you will see for yourself why your super jeep safari Iceland tour is called super jeep, as we make small work of smaller streams and glacial rivers, splashing through them.
Often described as “magical” and as something out of the Lord of the Rings fantasy epic, Seljalandsfoss is undoubtedly one of Iceland’s natural icons. This will be our last stop before we get to the black beaches of Vik. What makes Seljalandsfoss unique is the ability to take a small, albeit muddy trail, that takes you to a cave behind the waterfall. From this vantage point you can marvel at the thundering white veil of cascading water.
The super jeep safari Iceland tour is designed to take you on every type of terrain you can throw at it and the Black Beaches are no exception. They stretch, as far as the eye can see and if you are a regular beach-goer, you will see and feel the difference.
The colour black commonly has negative connotations but when most people see the black beaches for the first time they are amazed by the beauty of the scenes unfolding before their eyes. A drive around the beach and a stop for something to eat, with lots of photo opportunities in between, it’s time to head back.
There is still time for one more stop at the enchanting Skógarfoss waterfalls. With a width of 25m and a drop of 60m, Skógarfoss is one of Iceland’s biggest waterfalls. In the summer months, a double rainbow is visible on most days when the sun is shining due to the constant spray generated as the water hits the pool at the bottom. This is the last stop on the super jeep safari Iceland tour.
The Black Beaches tour runs all year round with early morning departures every single day. The trip is between 9 and 10 hours in length including pickup and drop off at your hotel.
Lunch is not provided on the trip so it is recommended you bring a packed lunch. We will stop along the way for lunch so you can bring some money to buy some lunch.
To ensure maximum enjoyment of your time on this tour it is recommended you bring the following with you:
• Warm comfortable clothing
• Waterproof jacket and study hiking boots
Avoid wearing jeans because they are not very comfortable for long hours seated in the super jeep.

This was indeed a beautiful day for my family. The weather was perfect, great company and friends, and fantastic guide from you Nature Kicks. Thank you for a wonderful day out.
With one day to spare, we packed the whole hen gang on this beach excursion. A great laugh and an even greater bonding session whilst exploring the outdoors 🙂 Scenery was second to none. Thanks again!
A very cool all-day day trip! The family loved it and I would truly recommend it to anyone wanting to jump on a safari in Iceland. A great day out.
The tour ends after nearly 10 hours with a well earned rest back in Reykjavik where you will be dropped off at your accommodation.
