What to expect

Travel through south Iceland's farming lands, black sand beaches, thundering waterfalls, powerful volcanoes and majestic glaciers along the coast!

Walk behind the magnificent wall of water from Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Take an easy hike on the ancient ice of Sólheimajökull glacier with a knowledgeable and certified glacier guide. Then take a leisurely stroll along the black sand beach of Reynisfjara known for its famous basalt columns and caverns. Witness the Reynisdrangar cliffs and basalt rock stacks that rise from the sea whom which Icelandic legends say are mischievous trolls turned into rock by the rising sun.

You will end this great sightseeing tour with a stop at Skógafoss waterfall. There you can walk up to the 60 meter high thundering waterfall to take your most memorable photographs. Tourists may even walk up the side to gain a bird's eye view of the cascading water and rainbows.
Experience all of these incredible landscapes as we pass through the fertile farming lands and small villages of south Iceland, where the land is rich in Viking history and heritage and watched over by the infamous Eyjafjallajökull and Hekla volcanoes. On clear days you will have an excellent view of these famous volcanoes. When we drive under the foothills of Eyjafjallajökull you can glimpse the Westman Islands rising steeply from the ocean just a few kilometers 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?

Rated: Easy/Family tour.
