Experience the raw power of the nature of Iceland on this South Coast adventure. See the black beach Reynisfjara, the infamous volcano Eyjafjallajökull and cascading waterfalls, and top it all off with a glacier hike on Sólheimajökull. If you are a nature and adventure lover, this tour is made for you.

After getting picked up in Reykjavík, you start with visiting the two great waterfalls of the South Coast, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, as well as the lesser-known, more secret waterfalls Gljúfrabúi and Írafoss.

Each of these falls is different from the other but equal in allure, so remember to bring your camera for all the fantastic photo opportunities.

As the journey continues, you will drive under the great Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano and the Mýrdalsjökull ice cap, where you will hop off for a glacier hike to have a closer look at the Sólheimajökull Glacier.

Hiking up a glacier is the best and surest way to fully grasp its great power, where the scenery is dotted with icy crevasses and the air is incredibly crisp and restorative.

A bit further is the great Reynisfjara Beach, where the sea crashes upon black sands and hexagonal basalt columns and rock stacks tower over the surroundings. 

In just one day, you will see two volcanoes and discover five amazing waterfalls, visit Reynisfjara and get up close and personal with the sleeping ice giants that are our glaciers during the glacier hike. 

This is the perfect tour for the curious travellers and the inquisitive nature lover. Reserve it now to secure your spot on this South Iceland sightseeing adventure. Check availability by choosing a date.
