South Coast & Glacier Kayak
Explore incredible scenery as you kayak up close to the spectacular outlet glacier, Sólheimajökull. Over 11% of Iceland is actually covered with glaciers. Paddle your way between the ever-changing icebergs floating in the lagoon and learn about various glacial features in the landscape and the impact man is having on the environment. Here´s the rare opportunity to experience the awesome beauty of glacial landscape from a wholly different perspective that few other tourists are lucky enough to enjoy. Our stable sit-on-top kayaks require no prior skill and the basic technique is very easy to pick up.
Back on dry land we drive along southern Iceland´s coastal lowland with its iconic black sand beaches stretching for miles. The first stop is at Skógafoss, one of the biggest waterfalls in Iceland, plunging from a height of 60 meters. There´s an old local myth claiming that hidden behind the falls is a chest filled with gold. For a glorious panoramic view of the surrounding scenery hike the stairway to the east of the fall.
The next and final stop is the impressive Seljalandsfoss waterfall behind which you can actually walk. This perfect tour for exhilarating nature experiences concludes around dinner time when you´re finally dropped off at your accommodation.
