Sólheimajökull glacier day tour from Reykjavik
Travel through south Iceland's farming lands, thundering waterfalls, powerful volcanoes and majestic glaciers along the coast!
Walk behind the magnificent wall of water from Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Take an easy hike on the ancient ice of Sólheimajökull glacier with a knowledgeable and certified glacier guide. We end this great tour with a stop at Skógafoss waterfall. There you can walk up to the 60 meter high thundering waterfall to take your most memorable photographs. Tourists may even walk up the side to gain a bird's eye view of the cascading water and rainbows.
Experience all of these incredible landscapes as we pass through the fertile farming lands and small villages of south Iceland, where the land is rich in Viking history and heritage and watched over by the infamous Eyjafjallajökull and Hekla volcanoes. On clear days you will have an excellent view of these famous volcanoes. When we drive under the foothills of Eyjafjallajökull you can glimpse the Westman Islands rising steeply from the ocean just a few kilometers off the coast.
