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 finish 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.
