You are not joining a regular tour but an adventure with endless possibilities and envy-worthy photo-ops. From the magnificent Sólheimajökull Glacier, the photographer magnet Seljalandsfoss waterfall, to the mighty waves of the Atlantic Oceans at the Reynisfjara black sand beach, you are guaranteed to enjoy more than what meets the eye as our guides are fun and creative.
We have also arranged the itinerary in a sequence that will help you avoid the main crowd, so hopefully, we can keep the natural beauties more to ourselves.
In this mini-bus (max 19 person) trip, you will be accompanied by experienced guides and a small group of other adventure-seeking travelers who wisely say no to a boring coach bus.
The first stop is at Seljalandsfoss waterfall which you can walk behind and get a unique point of view while feeling the vibrations of the water hitting the ground. It’s an automatic Instagram blockbuster. Right next to Seljalandsfoss is his little brother Gljúfrabúi, a smaller waterfall hidden in a narrow gorge which is accessible only by balancing on small stones in the river.
The pearl of the South Coast has to be Skógafoss waterfall. From the 60 meter high cliffs of East Eyjafjöll mountains, the waterfall pours down making, arguably, the most photogenic waterfall in the country. Over the years, the water has carved itself into the mountain, tucking the beautiful waterfall into a small gorge. Add rainbows forming in the waterfall’s spray and you have yourself a Kodak moment. Alongside the waterfall lies a staircase up to the cliff with views looking down into the gorge and onto the waterfall. The 527 steps up to the top provide a fantastic warm-up for the glacier hike!
Glacier Hike on Sólheimajökull Glacier
Here the adventure continues at Sólheimajökull glacier which is part of the 4th biggest glacier in Iceland, Mýrdalsjökull. We will provide helmets, harnesses, crampons and ice axes before hiking on the ice for 1 to 1,5 hours. Our glacier guides are all trained and licensed and provide a safe, entertaining and informative hike. A spectacular experience to learn more about this breathtaking and increasingly rare natural phenomenon.
Reynisfjara, the Black Sand Beach
Heading further east, we visit the black sand beach of Reynisfjara where the Atlantic coastline presents massive waves hitting the unique basalt columns in the cliffs above the sand. Rock pillars in the water and the cliffs of Dyrhólaey are seen in the distance. This area of the south is also a paradise for bird lovers, as puffins and dozens of other unique species nest on top of these cliffs in the summertime from June to August.
