After being pick-up from your accommodation in Reykjavik, you'll pass through all the small towns of the beautiful Icelandic countryside and head south. Your first stop will be the famous Seljalandsfoss waterfall, located beneath the Eyjafjallajokull volcano. Your tour guide will be happy to tell you all you want to know all about the colossal eruption of 2010. Close by, you'll also get to enjoy the beautiful but less known waterfall Gljufrabui.

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 sights, you can enjoy the free WiFi on your way back to Reykjavik.
