Full description
On this tour you will experience the effects that Iceland's waterfalls have on the landscape. You can attain a 360 degree view of the 60 meter tall Seljalandsfoss as you walk behind it, and the power of the mighty Skógafoss waterfall as it flows from the famous Mýrdalsjökull glacier. See the stunning Reynisfjara and walk upon the black sand. During puffin season (April-September) you may even be lucky enough to catch a sight of these colorful birds as they come to the beach for mating. If there is good weather, you can gaze across the ocean to the volcanic Westman Islands. You will also visit and closely observe a secret ice cave located at Katlajökull, named after the famous Katla Volcano nearby. You will see the beautiful layers of crystal-clear ice and black ash created from each eruption.  Visit the top sights of the south and experience the amazing diversity of Iceland, as well as discovering and exploring various local secrets with an experienced guide.
