South Coast, Waterfalls & Glacier Hike

Come with us and travel through the south Iceland farming lands to the black sand beaches, thundering waterfalls, powerful volcanoes and majestic glaciers on the south coast. Walk up to the roots of glacier Sólheimajökull and feel the temperature drop the closer you get and continue for your guided hike.


The first stop is at Skógarfoss. A picturesque waterfall thundering down the slopes of Eyjafjallajökull volcano. A waterfall frequently used in movies and commercials. 
The tour continues with an easy hike on the ancient ice of Sólheimajökull glacier with a knowledgeable and certified glacier guide. 

Then onwards for a leisurely stroll along the black sand beach of Reynisfjara. The beach features stacks of basalt columns that wall off surrounding cliffs scattered with caves. 

Offshore you will see Reynisdrangar pillars, basalt rock stacks that rise from the sea. Icelandic legend says they were trolls turned into rock by the rising sun when they came home late after a fishing trip. 
We round off this great sightseeing tour with a stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall where we can walk behind this magnificent wall of water, right in the slopes of Eyjafjallajökull volcano. 

On a clear day you will have a fantastic view of famous volcanoes, Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull. You will also see the Westman Islands, rising steeply from the ocean just a few kilometres of the coast. 

This tour is a great value and easy with an adventurous twist. Sights are breathtaking and where else in the world can you stand on a glacier ice, walk behind a waterfall and stroll along a volcanic black sand beach in one day?
