Under the volcano tour
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.
Katlatrack Meeting Point in Vík town. There is a huge sign to the right of the N1 gas station in Vík.
