  • Hike up Sólheimajökull Glacier
  • Visit Skógarfoss waterfall
  • Enjoy the magical Seljalandsfoss
Full description
Journey to Seljalandsfoss waterfall where you get the chance to walk behind the 60-meter fall. There will definitely be drizzle behind the breathtaking waterfall, so put on your rain gear and get your cameras ready! The adventure continues at Skógarfoss waterfall, a powerful 60-meter drop from what used to be coastline. You can enjoy the beautiful view from above after running up the 527 steps that lead to the top. Skógarfoss was a filming location for the Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Thor: The Dark World as well as several music videos.

On the iconic black sand beach discover magnificent basalt columns as well as the rock pillars named Reynisdrangar. Be sure to watch out for the unpredictable sneaker waves while enjoying the magical view of the beach and Dyrhólaey cliffs in the distance. Between June and August you can enjoy the company of hundreds of puffins that like to nest in the columns.

Last but not least, get geared up with the necessary safety equipment to hike up one of Iceland's most scenic glaciers on the South Coast, where you can see the fast melting ice formations and learn about the ancient geology and environmental importance of this area.
