Visit waterfalls, glaciers and black sand beaches on Iceland’s south coast in in great comfort. This tour is led by one of our experienced and fun driver-guides and run exclusively in small groups of no more than 18 people.
Iceland’s reputation as the “land of fire and ice” is well earned. Nowhere is this contrast more visible than the south coast of the country. Landscapes and geological features and colors change from one moment to the next along this scenic route.
The first stop of the day is the Skogafoss waterfall. This waterfall drops from old sea cliffs with views of Eyjafjallajokull volcano in the background. You can approach the water as close as you wish and really feel its power. If you are feeling adventurous as well as energetic, there is a moderately challenging climb of 370 steps to a viewing platform at the top of the falls.
Reynisfjara black sand beach is one of Iceland’s most iconic natural attractions. This shoreline features black sands, formed from sea-worn black volcanic rocks. Also at the stop, you can see the bizarre and otherworldly basalt column wall.
Solheimajokull is an outlet glacier of the much larger icecap of Myrdalsjokull. Your group will take a 20-minute walk to reach Solheimajokull. Glacial melting has left behind interesting features such as moraine, big boulders of rock and a small glacier lagoon. The beautiful color of the ice is ever-changing. The vast grandeur of the area gives you a glimpse of the landscape-changing power these mighty glaciers have wielded over the years.
The last stop is Seljalandsfoss waterfall, famous for the walking path leading around and behind the waterfall (bring a raincoat). The water that feeds this waterfall originates from the (in)famous Eyjafjallajokull glacier-capped volcano.
