    It is actually a small selling tour which gives you ideas where to spend more money and gives you a bit of historic facts. So we went and spent more money on fun stuff we saw from the hopp on hop off. The driver was very nice!

    A fantastic day lead by our guide Pascale, so much done considering the short winter days. Started off with the powerful Skogafoss Waterfall, the sun was out and cast a beautiful rainbow beside the fall! Next was the stunning Reynisfjara black sand beach. Then hiking af Solheimjokull glacier lead by the lovely instructor Linda. An unforgettable experience. Last was a visit to Seljalandsfoss and a secret fall between the canyon!
