Our first day stop is at Seljalandsfoss waterfall, one of Iceland’s greatest attractions. Here you’ll have the amazing opportunity to walk behind the magnificent wall of water and feel the power generated by the fall. Seljalandsfoss is an excellent place for a memorable photoshoot.


Experience all those incredible places as we pass through the fertile farming lands and small villages of south Iceland, an area rich in Viking history and heritage, watched over by the infamous Eyjafjallajökull and Hekla volcanoes. On clear days, you’ll have an excellent view of these renowned volcanoes and the Westman Islands off the coast.



The next step on our journey is a giant step for those that have never set foot on a glacier. Hear the ancient ice crack as you safely enjoy your hike on the glacier tongue with our certified glacier guide. After the thrill of the glacier, we head for Reynisfjara, where you can stroll along the black sand beach known for its famous basalt columns and caverns. Witness the Reynisdrangar cliffs and basalt rock stacks that rise from the sea, which Icelandic legends say are mischievous trolls turned into rock by the rising sun.


We end this incredible day tour by stopping at the majestic Skógafoss Waterfall. Walk right up to the 60-meter-high thundering waterfall and feel the spray on your face. You can even walk up the 527 steps to gain a bird’s eye view of the cascading water and rainbows.
