Description

Venture out of Reykjavík to explore the gorgeous natural features of Iceland's south coast. Trek across the craggy, frozen surface of a massive glacier, and visit 2 waterfalls as you learn about the country's intriguing natural history and Viking past.

Get picked up from your hotel or meet in the centrally located Reykjavik Terminal and grab a comfortable seat on the bus. As you drive, you can use an individual tablet for in-depth facts and resources about the areas you visit. Make your first stop at the Sólheimajökull Glacier, which flows from the Mýrdalsjökull ice cap. Slip crampons over your shoes and trek out across the vast surface of this incredible river of ice, listening as a certified glacier guide describes the forces behind the cracks, crevasses, and tunnels int he ice.

Continue on to the Skógarfoss waterfall, which plummets majestically from a 196-foot (60-metre) cliff. Climb up the 527 steps if you'd like to take in the view from above the cascade, and then visit the Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Walk behind the falls for a peekaboo look at the tumbling water and the landscape in the background, and hear about the area's Viking heritage as you look out at the volcanoes of the Westman Islands before returning to the city.

Glacier hike was fantastic, amazing views, my personal favourite of the trip. It’s not for everyone as slightly physical. Waterfalls were pretty as is the south coast area.

Comfortable bus with reliable wi-fi and usb charging. Audio tour given on table via GPS. They charge for headphones uf you dont have them. I would have prefered the more personal experience of a live guide. They gave us lots if time at each stop i LOVED the glacier hike. Definite highlight for me.

This was an excellent tour full of beautiful sights and adventure. The glacier hike was a great new experience. Anyone who loves to hike will definitely enjoy this excursion. After, we were brought to see waterfalls which also requires hiking. The waterfalls were amazing.
