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. Plane wreck and everything you must see!

    Wow! We did soooo much in just one day. We got to see 2 great waterfall, mysterious cave exploration, fantastic glacial walking, fat biking to the airplane wrecking, and a short walk to the geothermal outdoor swimming pool in the river valley so beautiful! ,It was long but totally worth it!!!

    Thanks a lot Michael and Iceland Advice and Trölls!!!

  2. All sights - one day!

    This tour had exactly everything we wanted to see and more! Our guide Stefano was just so great. We got to see the 2 waterfalls, go glacier hiking on Sólheimajökull, then we went to a beautiful geothermal poll and then to a lava cave where everything was frozen in the inside. The guide was so caring and nice and we learned alot about Icelandic geology.

  3. The Naked Truth

    This is Iceland, you get all seasons in 1 day. When you are told to pack appropriately, do yourself a favour and listen. Some tourists on our tour had fabulous expensive warm down jackets which mean nothing if you hiking in rain. So unless you dress for the occasion, you will not enjoy this trip. Luckily I did and I loved it. The highlight for me was the glacier hike except that it was too short. The secret lava cave was an incredible experience and yes that included hiking across muddy uneven terrain in the rain. When we were in the cave we had a minute of silence and complete darkness. It gives you a whole new perspective on having light. Unfortunately we could not cycle to the DC plane due to bad weather so we went to the beach with the basalt colums instead. All in all a great active and fun day. I will recommend this tour.

  4. Highlight of Iceland trip
