Ride a snowmobile, walk behind a waterfall and explore the south coast from above and "below"
SOUTH COAST & GLACIER RIDE
The tour kicks off with an action-packed snowmobile ride to the Mýrdalsjökull glacier beneath which lurks the much-feared active subglacial volcano, Katla. As you race across the snowy wastes, breathe in the fresh cool air and feel the adrenaline pumping. Round about you the diverse scenery is simply breath-taking with glaciers rising majestically to the north and miles of coastal black sand beaches to the south. Everything here is on a grand scale.
On the way back to Reykjavík we stop at the impressive Skógafoss waterfall where a short walk up a flight of steps offers a panoramic view of magnificent scenery. A local myth claims that hidden behind the fall is a chest filled with treasure. We next stop at the beautiful 60-metre high Seljalandsfoss waterfall, renowned for the hidden pathway that takes you behind it.
This is the ideal tour for those seeking that extra thrill and adventure while ticking off some of Iceland’s most popular natural treasures.
The tour includes a fun, scenic and comfortably challenging snowmobile ride. It's the ideal way to step off the beaten track and experience Iceland's glorious wilderness.
