Join us for a memorable journey along the south coast visiting all the major sites of the area and hiking on a glacier. Our first stop of the day is at Seljalandsfoss waterfall one of Iceland’s greatest attractions. Here you have the opportunity to walk behind the magnificent wall of water and feel the power generated by the fall. Seljalandsfoss is an excellent place for a memorable photo shoot. Next step on our journey is a giant step for those that have never set foot on a glacier. Hear the ancient ice crack as you safely enjoy your hike on the glacier tongue with our certified glacier guide. After the thrill of the glacier, we head for Reynisfjara where you can leisurely stroll along the black sand beach known for its famous basalt columns and caverns. Witness the Reynisdrangar cliffs and basalt rock stacks that rise from the sea which Icelandic legends say are mischievous trolls turned into rock by the rising sun. We end this great day tour with a stop at majestic Skógafoss waterfall. Here you can walk right up to the 60-meter high thundering waterfall and feel the spray on your face. You can even walk up the 527 steps to gain a bird’s eye view of the cascading water and rainbows.
Experience all those incredible places as we pass through the fertile farming lands and small villages of south Iceland, an area rich of Viking history and heritage, watched over by the infamous Eyjafjallajökull and Hekla volcanoes. On clear days, you will have an excellent view of these renown volcanoes along with the Westman Islands rising steeply from the ocean just off the coast.
Book this great value and easy sightseeing tour with an adventurous twist. The sights are breathtaking, the grandeur unforgettable. Where else in the world can you stand on 700 years old glacier ice, walk behind a 65 meters high waterfall and stroll along a volcanic black sand beach in one day?
You will be picked up in a bus by Iceland Excursions and will have an Arctic Adventures glacier guide during the tour.
