Discover the South Coast's most beautiful sites and enter a magnificent ice cave over an active volcano on this fantastic day tour for up to five people. Those eager to combine sightseeing and adventure will find this semi-private excursion unforgettable. 

You'll be picked up in Reykjavik at a bus stop near your accommodation by your friendly guide to begin this trip. Due to your small group, you'll spend little time getting other guests and are guaranteed a personalized experience. You'll be able to ask all the questions you want about Iceland and its nature as you travel. 

Once you reach the South Coast, you'll be able to marvel over a range of stunning sites such as the Westman Islands and the volcano of Eyjafjallajokull. Your first stops, however, will be at three equally beautiful waterfalls.

First, you'll see Seljalandsfoss, renowned for its great height and the enormous cavern behind it, allowing guests to walk around it under favorable conditions. Next, you'll find the hidden falls of Gljufrabui, which is concealed in a cliffside gorge and has a fairytale ambiance. Third, your guide will show you Skogafoss, the most powerful and dramatic of the three.

After leading you around these sites, they'll drive you to the base of Myrdalsjokull glacier, where your ice-caving adventure awaits. This ice cap sits on top of Katla, one of the most active and notorious volcanoes in the country, making your journey even more exciting.

You'll dress in all the safety gear provided, including a helmet, crampons, and an ice ax. You'll then be led onto the beautiful surface of the glacier for a short walk to the cave itself.

Once you enter, you find the colors, textures, ice formations, and winding corridors mesmerizing. Your guide will allow you to explore and photograph this magnificent feature while explaining the forces that have allowed such a beautiful space to exist. Most of Iceland's ice caves are only open in midwinter, making this an extraordinary experience for those traveling at other times of the year.

After a fantastic time here, you'll return to your vehicle for a breathtaking drive back to Reykjavik.

Discover the South Coast and enter a magnificent ice cave with this semi-private excursion for just up to six people. Check availability by choosing a date.
