Walk On A Glacier & Go Behind a Waterfall!

Visit the south-coast of Iceland and go hiking on a glacier then visit the the incredible waterfalls of Skógar and Seljalandsfoss on one of the must-do day tours from Reykjavík. Step on board our all new bus fleet, equipped with computer tablets in each seat. On the tablets you can use our GPS Sensitive In Bus Audio Guide, available in 10 languages. So, if you wish to know interesting facts about Iceland and the places you will visit on the tour in a language that you are likely to be comfortable with, that is very possible. Onboard you will also find a USB Charger and free WiFi. Should you have any questions during the tour or about our small country, you can ask the host who will happily assist you.

First stop will be the rugged Sólheimajökull Glacier. Sólheimajökull is an outlet glacier that flows from main ice-cap of Mýrdalsjökull where the mighty Katla Volcano rests. You will walk on the glacier, wearing special crampons on your shoes and explore the amazing cracks, crevasses and ice expertly lead by a certified glacier guide. The experience is definitely one of those who are unique to Iceland as, you only need to hike 20 minutes, and suddenly you will find yourself standing on top of a few hundred meters of ice, but still only slightly above sea-level.

The next destination is the stunning Skógarfoss waterfall. Up close, you will be able to feel the water-spray on your face and you can also climb up the hill (all 527 steps) to see the majestic 60 meter high waterfall from above and witness the water plummet down on it’s way to the Atlantic Ocean.

Last but not least, we will visit Seljalandsfoss waterfall that is one of Iceland’s most famous attractions, to get a different perspective you can take a walk from behind and look through the wall of water.

In order to reach all of our incredible destination we will make our way through fertile farming lands and pass by small villages. The area is known for its Viking history and heritage guarded by the infamous Eyjafjallajökull & Hekla Volcano dwell with their all-powerful presence. On clear days you will also have a great view of the Westman Islands where the renowned volcanoes lie, that caused the islander’s great troubles in the 1970’s.

Tour Highlights

Sólheimajökull

Sólheimajökull is a glacier tongue crawling from the ice-cap of Mýrdalsjökull. On Mýrdalsjökull rests the mighty Katla Volcano, that last erupted in 1918. The glacier tongue boast of a tiny surface area of about 8 km in length and 2 km in width. Needless to say, the area is one of vast and breathtaking beauty.

Seljalandsfoss

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.

Skógafoss

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.
