Next is the stunning Skogafoss, a waterfall with a drop of 60 m of natural raw power, and the secret waterfall of Írafoss with Solheimajokull glacier towering above them.

Your last stop will be Reynisfjara, a black sand beach nestling under Mt. Reynisfjall - seasonal home to numerous puffins that dive from its cliffs out to sea. Black basalt has been shaped into amazing different formations, most notably the famous Reynisdrangar. Enjoy the view, relax and watch the might of the Atlantic Ocean and its powerful waves.

After an amazing day exploring and enjoying the wonderful sites, you can enjoy the free WiFi on your way back to Reykjavik.
