On this trip we travel through farmland, past the black sand beaches, thundering waterfalls, powerful volcanoes and majestic glaciers on Iceland's south coast.
You will get the opportunity to walk behind the magnificent wall of water of Seljalandsfoss waterfall. With expert guidance, you will then take an easy hike on the ancient ice of Sólheimajökull glacier. Afterwards you will take a leisurely stroll along the black sand beach of Reynisfjara, characterized by its famous basalt columns and caves. You will be able to witness the Reynisdrangar cliffs and basalt rock stacks that rise from the sea, which legend has it are mischievous trolls turned into rock by the rising sun.
We round off this great sightseeing trip with a stop at the Skógafoss waterfall. There you can walk up to the 60 meter high, thundering waterfall and even walk up its sides to gain a bird's eye view of the cascading water and rainbows.
Your journey continues through the fertile farmlands and small villages of south Iceland, where the land is steeped in Viking history and heritage, watched over by the infamous Eyjafjallajökull and Hekla volcanoes. On clear days you will have an excellent view of these famous volcanoes and when we drive under the foothills of Eyjafjallajökull you may be able to catch a glimpse the Westman Islands, rising steeply from the ocean just a few kilometers of the coast.
This is a great value, easy, sightseeing tour with an adventurous twist. The sights are often breathtaking and the grandeur unforgettable. After one day you will be able to say that you have stood on a 700 years old glacier ice, walked behind a 60 meter high waterfall and strolled along a volcanic black sand beach.
