What to expect

Visit the South-Coast of Iceland and go hiking on a glacier, then visit the incredible waterfalls of Skógar and Seljalandsfoss on one of the must-do day tours from Reykjavík. The tour starts with a drive through the Hellisheiði mountain pass bringing you through moss-covered lava fields and past geothermal springs down to farmland along the beautiful southern coastline.

The first stop will be the rugged Sólheimajökull Glacier. Sólheimajökull is an outlet glacier that flows from the main ice-cap of Mýrdalsjökull where the mighty Katla Volcano rests. You will walk on the glacier, wearing special crampons on your shoes and explore the amazing cracks, crevasses and ice expertly lead by a certified glacier guide. The next destination is the stunning Seljalandsfoss waterfall that is one of Iceland's most famous attractions, to get a different perspective you can take a walk from behind and look through the wall of water.

Last but not least, you will visit the Skógarfoss waterfall. Up close, you will be able to feel the water-spray on your face and you can also climb up the hill (all 527 steps) to see the majestic 60-meter high waterfall from above and witness the water plummet down on it's way to the Atlantic Ocean.
