Embark on an exhilarating 11-hour private journey along Iceland's breathtaking South Coast with an exciting glacier walk. Travelers eager to immerse themselves in a world of towering waterfalls, majestic glaciers, and pristine beaches should book this tour now.

Your excursion starts with a private pick-up from your Reykjavik accommodation. Depending on the season, you can choose the starting time of your tour. Relish the seemingly endless daylight in summer with a late departure. Or, in winter, opt for an early start to harness the daylight hours fully.

Your first destination is the mesmerizing Seljalandsfoss waterfall, an idyllic canvas loved by photographers. You can venture behind the cascade for an awe-inducing panorama and an unbeatable photo opportunity. 

Walking into the cavern behind the falls, you'll feel like you've stepped into a fairytale. Just ensure you wear your waterproof clothing because you'll likely get wet!

A short drive east brings you to the awe-inspiring Skogafoss waterfall, known for its beauty and power. Its pristine waters and surrounding greenery paint a picture of nature's artistry at its finest. You can walk close to Skogafoss at its base and head up the staircase beside the waterfall for stunning views.

Next, your driver will take you to the Solheimajokull glacier for an exciting walk across its icy expanse. As you arrive at the site, your guide will gear you up with essential equipment, including crampons, an axe, a harness, and a helmet, ensuring your safety and comfort during the hike. 

Feel the cool breeze as you step onto the glacier, a vast icy realm that welcomes explorers with open arms. As you traverse the glacier, your experienced guide will share interesting facts and stories about its remarkable geology. 

You'll discover deep crevasses and intricate ice formations as you traverse this fascinating landscape. Overall, you can expect an unforgettable experience merging nature and adventure.

The day's final stop is at Reynisfjara, Iceland's most famous black sand beach. It featured in the popular series Game of Thrones and boasts a unique landscape with impressive natural features.

Here, the stark contrast of the volcanic black sand against the frothy white waves crafts an awe-inspiring spectacle. Striking basalt columns line the cliffs, and the Reynisdrangar sea stacks stand proud amid the Atlantic Ocean. These features encapsulate Iceland's raw and untamed beauty.

After a fantastic day of sightseeing and thrill-seeking, your driver will take you back to Reykjavik.
