Witness the marvellous waterfalls of the South Coast, and travel up the volcano and glacier Eyjafjallajökull. This tour should not be missed by those seeking a unique journey through this popular region.

The main attraction on this adventure is waterfalls but you'll also traverse up to the top of Eyjafjallajökull, Europe’s most notorious volcano. During its most recent eruption in 2010, it spewed ash into the atmosphere halting international air traffic for a few days. This will be forgiven, however, as you achieve the astounding panoramic views of the area from the summit.

Most of the waterfalls you will see on this tour are on the perimeter of Eyjafjallajökull. Seljalandsfoss waterfall is even fed by its meltwater. It has a scenic narrow drop of 60 meters into a lagoon, and a path around it gives visitors a breathtaking view from behind the water drop.

Another point of interest is Nauthúsagil, a crevice in the mountain wall which you will venture into. Following the small creek into the hill of the mountain, the walls get progressively taller, and the crevice narrower. The end of the crevice greets you with a barely known waterfall which can only be described as majestic; it is well worth the short hike, even though your hiking boots may get wet.

No South Coast tour of the waterfalls would be complete without a visit Skógafoss. This is one of Iceland’s most picturesque waterfalls, falling from the same height as Seljalandfoss, but with much greater force. At its heaviest flow, it can be twenty-five metres wide.

Before you return to Reykjavík, you'll have one more attraction to visit. You will have a look at the remains of an abandoned DC-3 airplane which crashed in Sólheimasandur desert in the early 70's. 

Don't miss this immersive tour of the South Coast's waterfalls with a visit up Eyjafjallajökull. Check availability by choosing a date.
