What to expect

Once you have been picked up from the designated pick-up point in Reykjavik it will be time to head towards the east, over Hellisheiði pass, and through the southern lowland to Sólheimajökull, an outlet glacier of Mýrdalsjökull, Iceland’s 4th largest glacier. From there you will move towards Iceland‘s most famous black sand beach, Reynisfjara, where the roaring Atlantic ocean fiercely hits the shore. Just off the beach, Reynisdrangar basalt stacks majestically rise from the sea.

The next stop is Vík, the most southern town in Iceland where you will stop at the local church. After having explored Vik, it's time to turn around and start making the way back to the city. On the way back the tour will stop at Skógafoss, roughly 65m high cascade, and the picturesque Seljalandsfoss, where you’ll have a chance to walk behind the waterfall. At all sites, you will have enough time to enjoy and make great memories to take home.

    Into Langjökull Glacier

    Iceland is famous for its glaciers but until recently, what lies underneath the Langjokull glacier had been a mystery. In 2010, the first manmade Glacier Ice Cave was carved to take people inside the heart of this remote glacier ice cap. What's more, you'll also visit the Deildatunguhver Hot Spring and Hraunfossar Waterfall.Once you're kitted out after arriving at Husafell base, climb onto an especially modified snow truck to start the climb to the ice cave, exploring the rugged glacial landscape along the way. An experienced guide will lead the way inside, where the temperature stays at a constant, 0°. You'll see the magnificent blue ice buried deep beneath the surface.All this combined with some bubbling hot springs, stunning waterfalls and panoramic views of the mountains as you make your way north to the glacier. You'll also enjoy dinner at a nearby restaurant. And on our return, you might – with luck – catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights dancing through the sky.
