Skógafoss Waterfall is where a short walk up will reveal one of Iceland's most scenic views, with glaciers, volcanoes and black sandy beaches around you. The Skógá river hurls down the cliffs in the form of the Skógafoss waterfall. The waterfall is among the largest in the country with a width of 26m and a drop of 60m.
Eyjafjallajökul caused quite a stir with a fiery eruption in 2010, causing serious trouble for airlines and travelers. The glacier crests at an elevation of 1.651 meters, where its ice cap covers the caldera of an active volcano. This ice cap stretches over an area of roughly 100 square kilometres and the mountain beneath the cap stands at 1651 meters high.
The Seljalandsfoss waterfall, like an oasis in the desert, stops the buses in their tracks and make visitors swoon at its magnificent glory. Standing at 60 meters, the most unique feature is the loop trail leading adventurous visitors right behind its watery curtain for an experience as rare as it is breathtaking.
Legend has it that the stacks in the sea are the jagged remains of a pair of trolls, who, in a botched attempt to tow a three-masted vessel ashore, turned to stone when the sun rose. You will find Garðar cliff; basalt columns that are shaped by the forces of nature. In addition to the myriad visual wonders, the area also hosts a rich birdlife.
We took the 8 hour bus trip to see as much as we could in a short period of time. The bus was modern and comfortable. The tour guide was informative and we saw some very different landscapes. Parts of Iceland are unique and there are opportunities for awesome pictures. A favourite was watching the Geyser erupt every 8-10 minutes. Very interesting.

Just got back from the tour! We went on a large bus that was in pristine condition and always at a comfortable temperature. Though large, the tour felt more intimate than other large bus tours we had been on. The group may have been smaller and both the guide and driver reached out and connected with everyone on the tour. Both answered questions and were very happy to chat about Iceland and Icelandic culture. The audio guides were a nice addition

We did the southern Iceland tour that included the glacier hike and visiting three waterfalls. The bus was smaller than other companies, but had free wifi and individual tablets with information about various sights along the way. Our guide was excellent and went with us through a stream into the hidden waterfall area. He also took many pictures of us. I would highly recommend this company and would book them again.
