    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!

Two incredible days, a very well put together organization with magnificent landscapes. The break time at each site is sufficient to enjoy, watch and take photos. I was lucky enough to meet Stéphane, a passionate French guide, living in Iceland for twenty years who knows this country very well! If you only stay a few days I think the south coast is really to do, Reynisfjara the black sand beach, Diamond beach with its blocks of ice without forgetting the must of these 2 days hiking on the glacier!

Hawk was a fabulous guide; super knowledgeable and interesting. Sights were amazing and plenty of time at each, we did not feel rushed. A few spaces on the bus so we could spread out which made the journey very comfortable. We were very lucky with the weather. Overnight accommodation and food were lovely. Highly recommend.

Really enjoyable tour with lots of beautiful stops, well timed by the guide so we never felt rushed nor bored. The glacier hike was especially beautiful and our guide was very knowledge! It was too cloudy to see the northern lights unfortunately but if you go with that expectation you won’t be disappointed.
