Amazing landscape in the area of Katla Volcano.
We start this fantastic tour by driving east to Mýrdalssandur, which is one of the biggest black desert in Iceland and a flooding area from Volcano Katla which is located under up to 750 meters thick ice, in Mýrdalsjökull glacier. Then we head to Vík where we drive to the top of Mt. Reynisfjall, almost vertical 200 meters to the top enjoying an amazing view and if we are lucky we´ll see some Puffins that are nesting there. After learning all about the Witch Katla and the brutal Viking Hjörleifur we head back home to your hotel.
