Seljalandsfoss is a supremely graceful waterfall, fed by the meltwater of the Eyjafjallajokull glacier. This impressive natural wonder falls about 63 meters (200 feet) into the quiet pool below, and there is a hidden trail behind the falls so you can watch the waterfall from all directions.
Glufrabui is an exquisite waterfall about 40 meters (130 feet) high, hidden in a gorge just 650 meters (2,000 feet) from the famous Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Stopping at a large waterfall, we shall follow the path at the foot of the cliff straight to the gorge, where the Glufrabui is hidden.
Skogafoss, one of the largest and most elegant waterfalls in Iceland, is 25 meters (75 feet) wide and 60 meters (195 feet) high. A waterfall of this size generates a lot of sprays, which on sunny days often creates a bright single or even double rainbow, adding to the charm of Skogafoss Falls. We will be able to walk to the base of the waterfall, as well as climb the stairs to the observation deck to see the waterfall from above. After visiting the falls, we recommend stopping for lunch at the nearby Bistro Bar restaurant.
Dyrholaey (Door Hole Island) is an incredible rock and cape on the south coast of Iceland. At the top of the cliff, at an altitude of 120 meters (390 feet), there is an old active lighthouse. You will enjoy from this place stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean, black sand beaches, and glaciers covering the Katla and Eyjafjallajokull volcanoes.
Reynisfjara is the most famous black sand beach on the south coast of Iceland. Its beautiful black sand and pebbles, vertical basalt columns, powerful ocean waves and the nearby Reinisdrangar sea cliffs make Reinisfjara a truly unique place to visit.
The Solheimajokull glacier has many impressive ice formations, including crevasses, steep ridges, and dips. Solheimajokull is the glacial tongue of Myrdalsjokull, Iceland's fourth largest glacier, which covers the mighty and impressive Katla volcano. We will be able to walk the trail from the parking lot to the glacier and feel its coldness and even touch the ice of thousand years old. The glacier hike is not included in the tour program and can be organized additionally at your request.
