Tour Description:

This tour takes you to south Iceland travelling through lush farmlands with views of powerful volcanoes and glaciers, black sand beaches, and thundering waterfalls.

First in a series of natural landmarks is Skógafoss waterfall, arguably the country‘s most iconic waterfall and one of south Iceland‘s star attraction. Viking legends tell of a treasure buried in a cave behind the waterfall.

From Skógafoss you travel east to Sólheimajökull glacier for a 2 hour walk in a spellbinding glacier landscape. Combination of expansive views, jagged peaks, cool blue glaciers, and wide-open sky provide a steady stream of amazing photographic opportunities.

From Sólheimajökull the tour takes you to Reynisfjara beach that features the dramatic and imposing Garðar, a pyramid of basalt columns known as the “organ pipes” that jostle the surrounding cliffs and caves.

Heading back to Reykjavik your last but by no means the last is the iconic Seljalandsfoss waterfall where you can literally walk behind a curtain of water which is certainly a moment you’ll want to capture on camera.

Please note:

Bring with you warm outdoor clothing, waterproof jacket and pants, head wear and gloves, and preferably proper hiking boots
You can also opt for renting sturdy hiking shoes, waterproof jacket, and pants as an extra with this tour (please select from "Optional extras" on the booking panel)
