4-day self-drive itinerary
About the tour
In high season it is difficult to be somewhere where you are completely alone, except you want to hike up a small mountain where I guarantee you that you will be alone. But safe time is between 7-9 in the morning(while people are having breakfast and after 10 pm in the evening). No guarantee here though.
Regarding secret spots near those locations with beautiful views that most tourists do not go to? Surrounding Hvolsvöllur you can find the waterfall Gluggafoss and the quaint Thorstein´s grove, both off the beaten track so I’m pretty sure you will find some peace there. What makes Gluggafoss so beautiful is geology. The river has created several holes and tunnels in the soft palagonite bedrock, through water finds its way- we call them “gluggar” or windows.
Also, near Selfoss are the small villages of Eyrarbakki and Stokkseyri and those places are definitely off the beaten track. Here would be a suggestion of where to eat also, and they have a beautiful beach just under the restaurant. There on the black sand, or on the other side, the estuary side, with a the flowers in bloom. The beaches in Eyrarbakki(near the campground) and Stokkseyri are also nice.
