Tour Description

Join this unique tour to see the South coast waterfalls, we will ride on a fat bike to the famous plane wreck in Sólheimsandur, then go glacier hiking on Sólheimajökulland finish bathing in Seljavallalaug geothermal pool. We end the day with a peak into a volcanic tube in a secret lava cave!

This is your only opportunity to go hiking on a glacier, bathing in a hot spring and descending into a volcanic cave in only one day! Explore the Elements of the South Coast with us.

The first stop is Seljalandsfoss and the secret waterfall Gljúfrabúi. The adventure continues on Sólheimajökull glacier, where we will hike to the glacier tongue, part of Mýrdalsjökull, one of the biggest glaciers in Europe! Later on, we will go to a black sand beach, the site of a DC3 plane wreck since the 50’s! Your guide will show you around and tell you the story of this airplane wreck… and we will get there by riding a fat bike! Next, we will go to Seljavallalaug geothermal pool, which has been chosen one of the best pools in the world (we can’t argue that!). We will end with a secret lava cave! Exploring the inside of a 5000-year-old lava tube that was formed in a volcanic eruption.

Make sure you book ahead of time as this tour is very popular because it is the only tour that takes you to the plane wreck and all these amazing sights in one day. Did we mention that all the buses have Wi-Fi and Icelandic music on board? What else can you ask for? Come with us!

  1. Wow!!

    Wow! Best tour ever!! Been around the world and been on many tours before but this was the best ever. Amazing guide. Maria was the best guide I ever met. She even showed us some extra amazing places that was not planned in the tour. We also had a 4 an longer glacier hike than planned. Choose this tour if you want to do and see lots of things in one day! You won’t regret it!!
