If you dream of exploring the wild landscape of the Icelandic southern coast away from Reykjavik, hop on a bus and join this one of a kind excursion to Skógafoss waterfall. Leaving Reykjavik behind, this tour takes you to the south of Iceland, traveling through lush farmlands with views of powerful volcanoes and glaciers and thundering waterfalls.
The first stop is at Skógarfoss, the most iconic and picturesque waterfall in Iceland. Viking legends tell of a treasure buried in a cave behind the waterfall.
The tour continues with an easy hike on the ancient ice of Sólheimajökull glacier with a knowledgeable and certified glacier guide. Combination of expansive views, jagged peaks, cool blue glaciers and wide-open sky provide a steady stream of amazing photographic opportunities.
Offshore you will see Reynisdrangar pillars, basalt rock stacks that rise from the sea. An Icelandic legend says they were trolls turned into rock by the rising sun when they came home late after a fishing trip.
The tour also stops at Seljalandsfoss waterfall, where you will be able to walk behind this magnificent wall of water that has its origins in the glacier of Eyjafjallajökull volcano. On a clear day, you will have a fantastic view of famous volcanoes Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull. You will also see the Westman Islands, rising steeply from the ocean just a few kilometers of the coast.
This tour is a great value, and easy with an adventurous twist.
