South Coast, Waterfalls and Glacier Hike in Iceland


Day tour along the South coast of Iceland

Travel through the south Iceland farming lands and to the black sand beaches, thundering waterfalls, powerful volcanoes and majestic glaciers on its south coast. 

The first stop is at Seljalandsfoss waterfall where we can walk behind this magnificent wall of water. The tour continues with an easy hike on the ancient ice of Sólheimajökull glacier with a knowledgeable and certified glacier guide. 

Then onwards for a leisurely stroll along the black sand beach of Reynisfjara. The beach features stacks of basalt columns that wall off surrounding cliffs scattered with caves. 

Offshore you will see Reynisdrangar pillars, basalt rock stacks that rise from the sea. Icelandic legend says they were trolls turned into rock by the rising sun when they came home late after a fishing trip. We round off this great sightseeing tour with a stop at the Skógafoss waterfall. 

On a clear day you may have a good view of famous volcanoes, Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull. When we drive under the foothills of Eyjafjallajökull you can get a glimpse of the Westman Islands, rising steeply from the ocean just a few kilometers of the coast. 

This tour is a great value and easy with an adventurous twist. Sights are breathtaking and where else in the world can you stand on a glacier ice, walk behind a waterfall and stroll along a volcanic black sand beach in one day?
Please note: The tour operator reserves the right to alter the itinerary if weather conditions change and the glacier walk is cancelled. If this cancellation occurs a visit to the Skogar museum and Vik village is offered.
