Glacier Hike, South Coast and Waterfalls Tour Highlights
Glacier Hike, South Coast and Waterfalls Tour includes: Seljalandsfoss Waterfall – Black Volcanic Sand Beaches and Rock Formations – Sólheimajökull Glacier – Reynisdrangar Rock Pillars – Skógafoss Waterfall
Our first stop is at one of Iceland´s most beautiful waterfall, the Skógafoss waterfall. You can experience the beauty of this waterfall first hand if you have seen one of the scenes from “Thor: The Dark World”. On a clear day you may get to see Iceland´s two famous volcanoes, Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull. Get a glimpse of the Westman Islands, rising steeply from the ocean just a few kilometers of the coast.
We then head for Sólhemajökul glacier. Enjoy a hike on the glacier. Walk along the black sand beaches of Reynisfjara. The beach features stacks of basalt columns that wall off surrounding cliffs scattered with caves. During this trip, you will also see the Reynisdrangar cliff, pillars, basalt rock stacks that rise from the sea. Legend has it that trolls turned into rock by the rising sun when they came home late after a fishing trip.
Our last stop is at the waterfall Seljalandsfoss where we can walk behind this magnificent wall of water.
