When leaving Reykjavík you first will cross a mountain range to enter the wide plains of the south. In good weather you can see tens of miles to the mountains of the highlands, to the majestic glaciers. Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull that cover two volcanoes.
You finally have reached the volcanoes missives, huge waterfalls await you, a glacier tongue gliding all the way down into the coastal plains that consist of black volcanic sands. You will see capes with rock cliffs where in summer colonies of breeding seabirds can be found.
